Cheongsam is a kind of women's clothing full of ethnic customs in China, which evolved from Manchu women's robes. Because Manchu is called "Qiren", it is called "Qipao". In the Qing Dynasty, women's clothing can be described as the coexistence of Manchu and Han. In the early Qing Dynasty, the Manchu women mainly wore long gowns, while the Han women still followed suit. In the middle of the Qing Dynasty, Manchu and Han imitated each other. In the late Qing Dynasty, the trend of Manchu imitating the Han nationality became more and more popular, and even the situation of "changing the half flag dress into the Han dress, and the palace robe being cut into short clothes" appeared. At this time, the fashion of imitating the Manchu dress was popular among some high-ranking officials and ladies.
