The Beauty of Traditional Chinese Clothing – Guo Ping Qi Pao
Qi Pao, or Cheongsam in Cantonese, is a form of traditional Chinese clothing that has been around since Manchu rule in China. The original style was developed by a group of tailors who were commissioned by Empress Dowager Cixi to create a style that incorporated elements of both Manchu and Han garments. The resulting design featured an elegant silhouette with high necklines and long sleeves that were often decorated with intricate embroidery or beadwork. Its classic style has made it timeless and elegant, while its practicality and comfort make it one of the most sought-after garments in the world.
At Yue Hwa Chinese Products’ Guo Ping Qi Pao Showcase, you can explore the various silhouettes and styles available for both men and women.
