Qipao, also known as Cheongsam is a type of traditional Chinese female dressing. It featurs stand collar, right or both side opening, fitting waist and slip bottom, which can fully set off the beauty of female shape. In 1920s', it had become the traditional dress for Chinese women. Its origin was in Shanghai, that's why so many experienced and prodessional old tailors with excellent craftsmenship in Shanghai nowadays. Last month, Kenji Liu Photography would like to take a shoot for "Shanghai Vintage" theme @HK, the model, Doris is one of my best friends, and she contacts me and I am pleased to lend few vintage dresses and some hair accessories, shoes for them, this red lace Qipao is one of them!! looking for the other one which is "Victorian Vintage"...

I'm speechless that red dress is beautiful!!! How nice of you to lend it out for the photoshoot... I have a top like that which I bought at a thrift store, but have no idea how to wear it. Thanks for the inspiration & history lesson. You were a beautiful bride.
