Cheongsam represents an important and unique heritage of Hong Kong; let us revive it from a fond collective memory to a place in our daily lives.
What is the evolutionary process of Hong Kong cheongsam and what are its characteristic features? How do local designers sustain and develop Hong Kong cheongsam? What are the current promotional efforts (e.g. at schools and professional bodies) and its prospect?
This will be a candid dialogue between fashion designers, cheongsam tailors, wearers and promoters.
