    About Shanghai Tang Dresses & Qipaos

    In its most widely known form, the modern qipao dress is a form-fitting piece with a mandarin collar and often with frog buttons and side slits. Shanghai Tang's take on the modern qipao combines the masterful tailoring and intricate elements of the traditional qipao with a modern twist, such as contemporary materials, elevated details and modernised silhouettes. Our qipao dress lengths range from the more traditional long qipao dresses, ankle-length qipao gowns and knee-length qipaos to more modern mini qipaos cut at an ultra-modern cheeky mid-thigh length. Showcasing stunning floral prints inspired by Chinese culture, our form-fitting modern cheongsams are crafted from fabrics that are as comfortable as they are flattering.

    Besides Chinese qipao dresses, Shanghai Tang also offers an enticing range qipao-inspired modern Chinese dresses that combine traditional qipao elements such as the mandarin collar with novelty fabrics and cuts. From the Shanghai Tang dress collection, discover stylish designs such as fit-and-flare skater dresses with a silk mandarin collar, biker-inspired zipped mini cheongsam, and Chinese collar dresses that mix different fabric panelling.
