A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE
CHEUNG SAM (長衫)

The cheongsam — also known as the qipao — might be considered the epitome of Chinese fashion. You can see the elegant, body-hugging dress in art and advertising, the movies, and some brides on their wedding days.
The history of this iconic garment reflects the rise of the modernwoman in the twentieth century.
In the mid-1910s and early 1920s, Chinese intellectuals began to revolt against traditional values, calling instead for a democratic and egalitarian society based on Western standards, including the emancipation and education of women.
As women were allowed into the education system starting in the 1920s, becoming teachers and university students, they shed the traditional, ornate robes of the olden days and adopted an early form of the cheongsam, which emerged from the androgynous men’s garment called the changpao.
Through the 1930s and 1940s, the cheongsam continued to change, accentuating the femininity and sexuality of the urban Chinese woman. The dress became more fitted and body-hugging, with some daring designs featuring side slits that reached up to the thigh and other creative variations.
