Can you imagine how foreign friends look like when they put on the traditional Han Chinese Costume? Last Sunday (March 27), a Han Chinese Clothing party was held in Guangzhou and attracted over 180 Chinese and foreign friends.
Han Chinese costume is one of the symbols of Chinese tradition, just like Japan has the kimono, Scotland has the kilt, and Germany has the lederhosen. Maybe many people only consider the qipao or cheongsam is the popular Chinese traditional dress. In fact, qipao or cheongsam appeared very late in the Qing Dynasty. Before Qing Dynasty, Chinese traditional costume is Han Chinese clothing.
Recently, a movie performed by the Chinese movie star Fan Bingbing brings back the Han clothing fashion. The movie revives traditional Han Chinese clothing and reintroduces it to everyone.
In the party, the host, Sinolanguage, a leaning & teaching Chinese institute, also introduced Chinese traditional music and handicraft culture to foreign friends. Artists taught foreign friends Chinese painting, calligraphy, and opera facial masks painting.
