As an essential part of the Chinese costume culture, cheongsam, or qipao, with its long history, embodies the Chinese civilization and the beauty and elegance of the oriental women.

Charm of Cheongsam, an exhibition showing 100-year history of Shanghai cheongsam, is being held at the new pavilion of the Jiading Museum from July 1 to August 24.

Since the city was opened to foreign trade as a treaty port in 1843, it has formed special cheongsam culture under the mixed influence of the Chinese and Western culture.
