Qipao, an exquisite Chinese clothing, stems from Manchu Nationality in China. In the Qing Dynasty, it was the loose robe for the royal women. In the 1920s, influenced by Western clothing, it went through some changes. For example, the cuffs went narrower, and the dress got shorter. These changes enable Qipao to fully show women’s beauty.
Today, Qipao quite often appears on world-class fashion shows. It is usually the first choice for Chinese women as they attend social parties. Meanwhile, many Chinese brides will select it as their wedding dress. Some influential figures even suggest making it as the national costume for Chinese women.
