About the dress: “Cheongsam” or “Qipao” is a body-hugging one-piece Chinese dress, also known as Mandarin gown. The stylish and often tight-fitting qipao dress that is known today was created in the ’20s in Shanghai and made fashionable by the Chinese socialites.
Traditionally, a Cheongsam is made of silk and embroidered with pearls and other decorations. Cheongsams are close fitting, and draw the outline of the wearer’s body.
In the 1950s, working women in Hong Kong started to wear more functional cheongsam made of wool, twill, and other materials. Most were tailor fitted and often came with a matching jacket. The dresses were a fusion of Chinese tradition with modern styles.
Please note: It’s a short sleeved dress. The black long sleeved top that the model was wearing underneath was just for the styling.
