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. 

  • 100% hand dyed xiang yun sha silk

Our silk is naturally anti-microbial and very durable: you can wear it many times before washing. But when it's time, hand wash with cold water and a mild soap. Hang to dry. Steam to remove any wrinkles. If ironing, iron on low heat.
