The divisive Chinese fashion phenomenon Cheongsam, sometimes called Qipao, is rapidly gaining popularity and glory in today’s modern world, particularly in the corporate World. Dating back to the 1900s, the Cheongsam has its roots in the emergence of feminism and globalisation in China.
The collapse of the Qing Dynasty in 1920 caused China to open its long-locked gates to the world again – leading to the experience of fast-paced modernisation and globalisation. With women finally acquiring the freedom to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with men, Cheongsam (formerly only worn by the noblemen of the Qing Dynasty) began having prevalence among them.
Corporate World Embrace
From short flowy robes to long shape-fitting dresses, Qipao evolved as women began celebrating their femininity. While still preserving its original ethnic style of bright-colored silks with unique yet contemporary designs, collar-style neck, hem, and buttons, this Chinese dress rapidly became a fashion statement of its own.
