Hongkong Post will issue a set of special stamps under the theme "Qipao" in October to showcase the indelible imprint of this traditional Chinese attire, it said Friday.

Qipao, a traditional Chinese dress for women that first came into vogue in the 1920s, accentuates the gracefulness of the feminine physique with its oriental charm, Hongkong Post said.

The stamps under the theme "Qipao" helps review the evolution of the dress, which spans almost a century and to showcase women's fashion in Hong Kong, Hongkong Post said. This set of six stamps, together with the stamp sheetlets, exhibits the special characteristics of qipao dresses across various decades - from the 1920s to the contemporary qipao, according to Hongkong Post.

Illustrations on the stamps are the works of students studying for the Higher Diploma in Visual Arts and Culture at the Hong Kong Design Institute, said the Hongkong Post.
