‘Hanfu’ literally means Han clothing and is the name for traditional costumes worn by Han Chinese people. The costumes have thousands of years’ history and were widely worn by Han people until the Ming dynasty; however, the term hanfu is a modern development. Hanfu influenced the development of other traditional clothing, such as the Japanese kimono and Vietnamese Áo giao linh. As an initiative to revitalising Han Chinese culture, the ‘hanfu movement’ started in the early 2000s and has become increasingly popular amongst enthusiastic young Chinese. This demonstration will give a basic introduction to the history and culture of hanfu and how styles have changed over time.

Booking required, Max 15 people/session
