China has a long history, and the Chinese clothing culture was created by the penetration and influence of various ethnic groups. Since the Han and Tang Dynasties, especially after modern times, Chinese clothing has absorbed and melted the outstanding crystallization of foreign cultures of all ethnic groups in the world. However, it has evolved into a Chinese costume culture with Han nationality as the main feature.

Modern Chinese Clothing
In 1910's, a great change occurred with the formation of the Republic of China, when Mao Suit became popular among the males and cheongsam among the females. In the early period of the People’s Republic of China, Mao Suit stayed popular among not only males, but also females. Later in the 1970’s, when the country implemented reform and opening policy, the masses gradually turned to western-style attire.
