Cheongsam Inspirations & Creativity

Just like any other thriving cultural heritage, cheongsam remains fluid, and has become the subject and source of new inspiration and creativity. Its three key elements – the mandarin collar, the flower button and the split – are unique features that can be used to create infinite mix-and-match combinations with fabrics such as Cantonese silk and other materials, giving cheongsam different styles and shapes that serve a wide spectrum of functions and occasions.
