Hanfu fashion trend takes center stage at global model contest in Shanghai

June 12, 2024 |

During the Dragon Boat Festival holiday, the sixth Global Hanfu Model Contest Shanghai Division was held at Zhenru Unipark MAX.

"In the past two years, the number of participants in the Hanfu competition has been increasing,” said Yuan Yuan, the chairman of the Shanghai Division Organizing Committee. “Not only are various ethnic minorities participating, but it has also attracted many foreign Hanfu enthusiasts." 

This indicates that the modern design of traditional Chinese clothing has inadvertently become a major fashion trend.

This event, the largest and most influential Hanfu competition in the country, is dedicated not only to promoting Hanfu and preserving its culture but also to deepening the understanding of the cultural heritage behind the attire from different dynasties.

"Through different makeup, hairstyles, outfits and accessories, one can distinguish which dynasty or even which era they belong to. This fully reflects our long-standing Chinese history and culture," said Yuan Yuan.
