The Fashion and Textiles gallery presents a diverse range of fashion and textiles through periodically-rotating displays, outlining how identities and cross-cultural exchanges are revealed through dress.
In its first display, Fashion Revolution: Chinese dress from the late Qing to 1976, the Museum presented 33 representative examples of Chinese dress, including rare and elaborate dragon robes, an early representation of the iconic qipao from the 1930s, and a zhongshan zhuang – otherwise popularly known as the “Mao Suit”. The chronological display reflects a century of drastic political, economic and socio-cultural changes, and its effect on sartorial trends and choices.
