The Qipao is a Chinese dress design originated in the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) and fit to highlight women's body shape and elegance. In the 1930s and 1940s, the Qipao design peaked, becoming symbolic attire for Chinese women and their femininity. Now the dress can be commonly seen at parties and formal occasions.

Starting May 22, a three-week exhibition will showcase about 300 precious examples of Qipao dresses and glazed jewelry made at the end of the Qing dynasty. Their collector, Jin Mei , is a well-known archaeologist and calligrapher. The exhibit is considered to be an intangible national-level Chinese heritage and will forever be kept by the Qipao Museum in Kunming city, Yunnan province. This will be its premier tour outside of Kunming.

Additionally, Chinese fashion designer Feng Lu will show her latest Qipao designs accompanied by her British counterpart, Patrick Dabra. Canadian photographer Lisa May Loveless will join the exhibition with her China themed work.
