Chinese traditional costumes at Ching Dynasty and Manchu selling in China Town. Western bathrobe in Chinese fabric's also selling here.
The qípáo (旗袍), qípáor (旗袍儿), or ch'i-p'ao, often known in English as the cheongsam or mandarin gown, is a body-hugging (modified in Shanghai) one-piece dress for women. In the 17th century, Manchurian conquerors (Qing Dynasty) who invaded the Ming Dynasty created a law that outlawed the native Hanfu clothing and replaced them with the Qipao.

a nice shot from the street. Like the colours here very much. The cloths are creating a strong focal point to your shot. Good light management and nice depth. A superb catch. Tfs.
