Scarlet Qi Pao Dress
After 8 years and repeated customer requests, we finally made a Qi Pao
旗袍! Also known as Cheongsam
长衫, this is a style of Chinese dress popularized in the 1920s and '40s by socialites and high society women in Shanghai. It's a tailored, figure skimming design that accentuates curves and embodies femininity. In our take on the dress, we lengthened the sleeves (cap sleeves are just a no), added a side pocket (!), and loosened the fit for a more flattering and modern spin on a legendary classic.
