Shanghai Girl Gets All Dressed Up: The Evolution of Fashion in 1930s Shanghai by Beverley Jackson

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.
