More than 300 artworks including Qipao (also known as cheongsam) and Manchu costumes were displayed in Shenyang on Tuesday.

Qipao, a classical Chinese dress of Manchu origin, is known for its classic beauty and tailored silhouette that accentuates the curves in all the right places.

Well-known Qipao designers and intangible cultural heritage inheritors were invited to showcase their collections at the exhibition.

Qipao from Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), the Republic of China (1912-1949) and modern varieties all reveal the development history of Qipao culture.

Traditional Qipao was not comfortable and practical, thus hindering its development, said Gong Hangyu, a Qipao designer.

Therefore, Gong incorporated foreign fashion concepts into Qipao, improving on its style, pattern and craft to lure more consumers.
