Cheongsam – The Beautiful Dress of Chinese Women

Postby zhuce32 » Wed Aug 29, 2012 2:08 am

The term cheongsam simply means long dress. In other areas of China including Beijing, it is branded as “qipao”. When the original Manchu rulers arrived to China, they organized some people, primarily Manchus, to become “banners’ (qi) and addressed them “banner people” (qiren), which then had become the name of every Manchu. Each Manchu woman normally wore one-piece dress also became known as “qipao” or “banner dress”. Although the Revolution in 1911 was able to topple the Qing or Manchu Dynasty, the dress of women was able to survive the political transformation and, with developments after, the dress has turned out to be the customary outfit for the women in China.

I know this is spam, but harmless and somewhat interesting, so I left it but deleted the user. :grin:

There are some lovely examples of that style in Google images.

I can't figure out what the purpose of the above spam is, since it doesn't contain any links.....

It had links, but I removed them in case they were harmful.

I agree with Marie, how the post is spam even though it does not contain any link.
I never heard about Cheongsam term but I like long dress and love to wear long dress.

Connections you may have forgotten over the years, or perhaps never even knew.
