Shanghai Women’s Heritage

Event Details

What did women in the Qing Dynasty wear? How did the tailors make those exquisite costumes by hand? How did fashion trends develop? In her lecture, Ms. Shirley Shen, owner of this private museum containing over 400 antique costumes, shoes, and headdresses, will present valuable examples of antique costumes and provide us with insights into costume culture, combining history and theory with pieces from her precious collection.
