About this event

This Exhibition celebrates the beauty and values of traditional Chinese fashion through the exquisite works contributed by The China National Silk Museum, Cheongsam Master Tailors, contemporary fashion designers, celebrities and fashion design students. Visitors will be able to navigate through a blended physical and virtual collection that narrates decades of evolution in forty-eight cheongsam creations, captured in their intricate designs and exquisite craftmanship that were drawn from Chinese traditions and values. Furthermore, the “Hong Kong Cheongsam Making Technique” was inscribed into The National List of Intangible Cultural Heritage of China in 2021. With this in mind, we hope that future generations would be inspired by this Exhibition to take this alluring inheritance of the Chinese Cheongsam to its next exciting and significant milestone.
