To Revolution.

Inspiration so often follows radical change.

Consider Shanghai in the 1920s. There’s been a shift toward egalitarianism following the Xinhai Revolution in 1911. Gender equality is gaining traction.

Eventually, fashion distills these changes into wearable art and the qipao becomes a staple of everyday wear. The original fit is looser than what you see here, but by the ‘30s and ‘40s, a new shape emerges.

More form-flattering. The side slits, more daring.

Women add piping, collars, and fasteners to lushly-detailed fabrics.

Beautiful things (new ways of thinking, the most flattering dresses) have a way of holding up, even 100 years on...

Velvet Qipao Dress (No. 6773). Traditional Chinese qipao in an elegant burnout velveteen. Layered multi-floral print. Short sleeve. Less fitted than the classic; fits more like a shift dress. Below-the-knee length. Sheer burnout velvet with opaque stretch lining. Forgiving, flattering. Center back vent. Mandarin collar with fold over left shoulder. Invisible zipper. Imported.
