A garment exhibition of Shanghai-style qipao (cheongsam) kicked off at the China Culture Center in Paris on Thursday. To open the exhibition, French models staged a qipao fashion show. 

Jointly organized by the China Culture Center in Paris and the Shanghai Intangible Cultural Heritage Protection Association, the exhibition includes classic qipao collections, old photos and modern qipao, representing 100 years of changes in qipao design and the evolution of Chinese clothing.  

All the exhibits on display were selected by clothing experts. The 20 qipao featured on the catwalk at the event were all custom made, a combination of Chinese traditional elements and modern designs. 

The exhibition will last until February 28. Lectures will be held at the center to introduce the development history, manufacturing techniques and innovations of qipao to the French public.
