Chinese people have had a special preference for flowers of all kinds since ancient times. There are a wide variety of flower motifs on traditional Chinese costumes, such as the commonly seen lotus, peony, plum blossom, chrysanthemum, camellia, and so on. Chinese people also like to choose fruit motifs, such as bergamots, pomegranates, peaches, gourds and so on—which symbolize auspiciousness—to decorate their costumes.
In the exhibition, over 80 traditional costumes from the late Qing Dynasty and early Republic of China era are displayed. It also includes skirts, purses, handbags, earmuffs, bedspreads and more. Some children’s clothes with finely embroidered flower motifs have been selected for display.
