Today, there are still many people like the
dress and we can see different kinds of them, such as V-shaped, square,
scalloped and sweetheart necklines. In some evening dresses versions, they have
the ruffle sleeves, with backless and a train.
The cheongsam of today can be designed according to the wearer's ages and the occasions.
Now there are many occasions we can see the cheongsam,
such as wedding banquets, Spring Festival celebrations and international
gatherings. Cheongsam is the symbol of China.
The cheongsam has special elements differ from Western evening dresses, such as the style. If you limit your understanding of the cheongsam to some small elements or details, it means that you don't truly understand this Chinese dress.
Foreigners prefer the dress' traditional look. The same goes for their choice in materials: They like fabrics such as silk printed with the Chinese people's favorite totem.
The cheongsam, which emerged in the 1920s and soon became the rage in everyday Chinese fashion, disappeared from public life during the height of Chinese revolutionary zeal in the '60s and '70s. The dress reappeared in the '80s, but it has not recovered its former popularity.
