“Hong Kong Cheongsam Story” Exhibition


Date & Time:
20/07/2017 - 31/01/2019


Hong Kong Arts Centre and Hong Kong Museum of History collaborate for the first time to present an exhibition “Hong Kong Cheongsam Story” near Gate 22 at the Airport. The exhibition focuses how the tradition of the women’s cheongsam continues to develop in Hong Kong and gradually becomes the source of inspiration of new creations; meanwhile, it underscores the city’s contribution to the preservation, perpetuation and promotion of the craftsmanship of cheongsam. Featuring the exquisite handicraft of cheongsam tailors with a display of the tools they use and the elegant dresses they make, visitors will appreciate the magnificent skills in cheongsam-making and learn more about the meaning of the dress to Hong Kong. Exhibition period lasts from July 2017 to January 2019.

 
Hong Kong Arts Centre also produces a cheongsam documentary, featuring contemporary Hongkongers from across the generations, including collectors, tailors, designers, students and above all comic artists alike to share their point of view on how cheongsam reflects the changes of society. The video will be shown on the exhibition.
