“The beauty of a cheongsam is not in the fabric — fabrics can be purchased, but not the skills.”
In honor to all the readers celebrating the Chinese year, I am sharing today some typical Chinese dresses known as qipaos or cheongsams. I wish you all happiness, prosperity and longevity. Hope you enjoy my selection of dresses.
I love to wear a qipao too. I find that it is a very unique design that stand out and highlight the feminine body shape.
“Tailor-made qipaos or cheongsams used to be the epitome of haute couture for Chinese women in the early 1900s. Socialites of old Shanghai would anxiously await their turn for the tailor to measure them so that their qipao or cheongsam was a perfect fit for their body. The fitted dress allowed a woman to dress with elegance, grace and modesty while showing off her figure.
Today, the qipao and cheongsam still embodies these values and adds a unique flare to your wardrobe!”
