History Of The Cheongsam

Cheongsam, widely known as qipao. Is a tightly fitted dress that has originated in the 1920s in Shanghai. It has quickly become a fashion phenomenon that was adopted in films. This iconic garment symbolizes the rise of a modern Chinese woman in the twentieth century. As back in the past man wore garments such as the Changpao in Shanghai. The qipao represents the rise of an educated woman and also gender equality. 

However, by the end of the 1960s, the popularity of the cheongsam trend was in decline. Western affluence brought in cheaper and mass-produced western clothes such as t-shirts, blouses and suits. However, the classy and delicate handmade cheongsam remains a significant garment in the history of Chinese. Therefore wore by many Chinese on Chinese New Year.
