Dress yourself in golds and emeralds of the lavish Qing palace hall!
The Qing dynasty was China’s last flourishing dynasty ruled by an ethnic minority called the Manchu. Manchurian court ladies, known for their sense of style, wore characteristic dresses, elaborate headdresses (depicted in the corners of the scarf), and “flowerpot shoes”.
Despite wearing those high heels that had no heel at all, this Manchurian princess or“gege” exhibits masterful skills and grace. Meticulous dedication to detail can be found in the dragon reliefs on the pillars and on the throne to show the prosperity of this dynasty.
