The allure of qipao | Updated: 2017-06-26 14:02

Who can forget the rhythmic, slow strides of Maggie Cheung in Wong Kar-wai's film In the Mood for Love, showing off her lithe figure, accentuated by the lines of the qipao?

Embraced by the working women of Hong Kong in the 1950s, the form of this elegant Chinese gown still resonates with present-day couturiers.
