It was within this sensual, cinematic setting that traditional Chinese fashion changed forever. Call them cheongsam, qi pao, or Suzy Wong dresses-the chic, high-collared, body-clinging, high-slitted gowns evolved in a world of intrigue during a time of dramatic change. Told through the eyes of a fictional American diplomat's wife, SHANGHAI GIRL GETS ALL DRESSED UP merges Shanghai's social history with the evolution of Chinese fashion.
