Synopsis

The cheongsam is a dress that has become an internationally recognized symbol of Chinese cultural identity and femininity, originating as a combination of Han and Manchu styles of clothing and further influenced by American fashion. For Canadian-born women of Chinese origin, the wearing of this dress is fraught with tensions between desire and fear, wonder and contestation.
