Hi there,
Just wondering what are the range of prices of qipao you can get from maoming rd, shanghai? are they cheaper/more expensive/ better quality than the rest of china? Sabrina looks stunning! :)


just wanted to tell you that a qipao is not actually the traditional Qing Dynasty dress. Han Chinese women wore fashions that have carried over from the Ming dynasty while Manchu women had their own fashions. In this regard, the qipao is actually an invention of the twentieth century (1920s) but you are right about it becoming an archetypal Chinese dress.


i love their dresses i know i dont speak chinese but my school is doing a reseach on chinese life and i was looking at the dresses and I love the white one

sincerly, Brittany

Ther is NO better dress to show off the delicate asian figure than the demure cheongsam/ qipao I assure you from a male point of view, if you want to be noticed get one of these, but make sure it's a good quality one!

  • I thought it would be a good idea to share what camera gear I use. I use a Canon EOS500D with EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM zoom lens and EF 50mm f/1.8II.

    Sometimes, I use a Canon Powershot S100 which tucks neatly into my pocket.

    I use a MacMini,iPad 2 and iPhone 6.
