Eileen Chang has said that clothes can be viewed as a kind of code. However, to a woman, the cheongsam can be viewed as a declaration, which can be used to show the temperaments of the women.
When we open the scroll of history, we can find that the cheongsam has made an indelible mark in the apparel art for thousands of years. Li Bai has said that eyebrows can defeat the willow leaves, and the skirt can make the pomegranate flowers feel jealous. Wan Chuwu has said that delicate eyebrows can defeat the day lilies and red skirts can kill the pomegranate flowers. Zhang You has said that where has the mandarin duck given the embroidered belt and who win the shirt from the peacocks. Wang Jiansuo has said that the shirt with heavily embroidered leaves, we can find the trace of the feathers of golden phoenix and sliver goose. Under the poet’s description, cheongsams are compared to each other to figure out which one is the most beautiful one. Just like that there are many flowers, which can be very lively and amazing.
From the Tang dynasty until today, the cheongsams have been viewed as a traditional Chinese element. It is undoubtedly unmatched in woman’s eyes. Especially in nowadays, cheongsams have attracted the attention from the world.
Women who wear cheongsams can be cool and beautiful. Though the cheongsam is relatively retro, sexiness and elegance can still be revealed very well. And the loveliness and the liveliness can also be found in those women who wearing Chinese dress, which can be viewed as the combination of clothes and women’s hearts. Its spirituality is that if the dress with the same style or with the same fabric can show different feelings if the dress is worn by different women. They will show the different graceful temperaments. The sadness when the women bow their heads or the graciousness which can be felt when the women turn their back to us or just raise their hands, the thousands of amorous feelings when the women wearing cheongsams walk slowly, these can all be felt when we see the women wearing the cheongsams, just like the sandalwood smell which has been used for several years, we can feel the smoke which is scatted in the dust of the era. And the smell is just like the feeling which has already been implanted to the marrow.
When we talk about the topic of the costume, people can not help but think of the high standing collar, pankous, brocade or some other traditional elements. In fact, with the prevailing fashion national wind, the design of the cheongsam has already been growing with innovation. For example, the use of those designs of western-style clothing versions can make the dress be more fashionable. And when it comes to the fabrics, cheongsams have got rid of the traditional fabrics. Nowadays, not only silk or brocade can be used as the fabrics of cheongsams, but some fur materials or hemp, chemical fiber and so on can all be used as the main fabrics of the Chinese dresses. More and more fashionable elements can be used to make the Chinese dresses be more glamorous.
Different women have different choices to the colors of the Chinese dresses. For example, some women like the traditional red color, or those orange red, purple, peach red and so on, and others like the color dark green, sapphire blue, brown, light purple, beige, light gray and so on, and there are some women also like the color bright yellow, black and gold. In this case, we can say that one man’s meat is another man’s poison. What I want to mention to you is that for those women whose facial color is relatively dark, when they choose the colors, they could choose those bright colors, which can make them be more energetic.
As we can find that the flower pattern is still the favorite embroidery style for women. The so-called medallion embroidery is the pattern which is surrounded by the radiation or rotary patterns which can be composed of peony, plums, orchids, bamboos, chrysanthemum flowers respectively. Or it can also be the pattern which can look like the characters like blessing, fortune, longevity, double happiness and so on. In addition, some fashionable patterns have also been added into the designs, for example, the willow flower, convex-shaped pattern, or some abstract patterns. And the most important thing is that the delicate embroidery has also been viewed as the fashionable design.
In recent years, Chinese dresses have already become one of the beloved designs for those famous fashion weeks. Lots of international fashion masters also use many pieces of works to show their feelings and understandings to the oriental style. While those designers who are born in China may use the original oriental Chinese dress combined with the fashionable elements to design different Chinese dresses. Do not even think that the Chinese dresses only have the dignified, elegant feelings. Nowadays, the cheongsams have changed a lot. Wildness, sexiness, cuteness and some other elements are all used to make the cheongsams be world famous. But all the designs would be done with the basic style of Chinese dresses. So such dresses can still be elegant.
Man’s dream can be realized in the football field, swimming pool, while woman’s dream can be realized in the fashion shop or the large wardrobe.
When a woman is unwilling to be mediocrity any more, she will choose a cheongsam.
