The third Cross-Straits Qipao Festival came to a close in Xiamen on Dec 8. Around 500 qipao lovers and fashion icons attended the event.

The three-day event revolved around fashion, innovation, inheritance, and promotion. It was meant to promote traditional Chinese culture and the integrated development of the modern fashion industry with traditional Chinese clothing.

The qipao, a traditional Chinese body-hugging, one-piece dress, known in Cantonese as the cheongsam, was designed to show off the beautiful figure of Chinese women. The qipao show gives people a chance to learn about the traditional Chinese dress.
