Mandarin General.

I really love seeing the qipao [chengosam] reinvented in modern day clothing and Taiwanese native Peggy Tan does just that with Mandarin & General.

A traditional qipao fits insanely snuggly so I can see why she relaxed the fit and made it short enough to take a full step–much more wearable for everyday. I have a traditional qipao and I can barely take a bite or sit down in it!

Unfortunately like most Asian designers, to really make it you have to be in NYC where Tan and her husband have set up shop. I’m excited to see what she comes up with next–I really would like to see this tradition live on.
