Unveiling the Fabric of Tradition: Journey to Yunyang to Adorn Chinese Costume

Chongqing – In the heart of China, surrounded by the winding serenity of the Yangtze River, lies Yunyang, where the threads of tradition and culture weave together to create profound Chinese history. Here, Chinese clothes are not just garments but vessels carrying tales of the past, whispering secrets of a bygone era, and symbolizing the ethos of a civilization that has thrived for thousands of years.

At the opening ceremony of the first Yangtze River International Chinese Clothing Art Exhibition held on September 28, a diverse assembly of overseas Chinese attire aficionados from nations including Russia, Kyrgyzstan, and Congo (Brazzaville) converged in Yunyang. They were drawn by a shared enthusiasm to unearth the authentic narratives and clandestine tales of Chinese costumes concealed within this region’s rich history of tradition and culture. 

The event will run until October 7.

In addition to the marquee events like the opening ceremony, drone displays, and the Yangtze River Chinese Clothing Art Exhibition, a meticulously organized array of supplementary activities will also unfold across renowned locales such as the Zhangfei Temple and the Lakeside Greenway. These will encompass Chinese Clothing Exhibitions, Hanfu Shows, Costume Transformation Shows, Traditional Style exhibitions, Garden Parties, and Traditional Chinese Medicine Culture exhibitions.
