“A Night of Glamor and Intrigue at Shanghai Bund in 1930” - Trendy New York Cheongsam Night Out: A Chinese Oscar Night in NYC

Shanghai in 1930 was considered the “Paris of the East”, renowned for its chic Cheongsam style dress, a modernized form-fitting fashion popular among socialites and upper crust of high society in China.
