Characterized by a high mandarin collar, a split skirt, and a fitted bodice with an asymmetrical closure extending from the neck to the right underarm, the Cheongsam (or Qipao) is a type of dress traditionally worn by Chinese women.
Inspired by the ethnic clothing of the Manchu people, the original qipao fitted loosely and hung in an A-line. It covered most of the wearer’s body, revealing only the head, hands, and the tips of the toes, serving to conceal the figure of the wearer regardless of age.
At Zion Creation, our Modern Cheongsams have a distinctly different look to the original traditional Qipao. It is cut as a sheath dress – a fitted dress which follows the curves of the bust, waist & hips – with a collar, and creatively blended with modern fashion in different styles. Every piece is individually designed & handcrafted in various exclusive fabrics – our Modern Cheongsams come in lace, embroidery on tulle, sequins & beaded Tulle, satin, and silk. Unique colour combinations and hand-sewn applique are also one of the characteristics of our Modern Qipao.
