A Worth Waiting Luxury


Qipao, also known as Cheongsam, is a traditional Chinese dress originated in the Qing Dynasty. The dress expresses of past dynasties and is noted as the highest of standard for Chinese women for hundred years.

Women’s body is hidden behind the one-piece stylish dress but still draw the outline of the wearer’s body, Qipao displaying its unique charm in a more restrained way. Qipao is liked by women not only because it stresses on the natural beauty of a female figure, but also makes women's legs appear more slender. It characterizes Chinese women's modesty, softness and beauty.

Traditionally, a Qipao is made of silk and embroidered with pearls and other decorations. Today, Qipao is also the modern designer's fashion icon.

Tourists to Beijing could also customize their own Qipao. There are many shops in Beijing offer customized Qipao. It is said that a good dress needs at least three times fitting. The first time to measure; the second time to fit on, the last time is completed. It is a truly luxury which is worth for waiting.
