Creators: Ling, Wessie

This chapter examines how the Qipao was employed in order to resist and negotiate with institutional repression in the Republican era through the study of Linglong, a popular women’s magazine in 1930s China. Chinese women’s attitudes towards Western-style fashion and aesthetic judgment, mediated through resistance and negotiation, is unveiled and analysed whereby the conceptual ideas of harmony and concealment in Chinese clothes had become apparent.
