Pink floral cheongsam with a matching shawl

This pink floral ankle length cheongsam with long sleeves belonged to Mdm Zhuo Yu Chun, director of Tai Wee Company Pte Ltd. It has red and white piping all over. The frog buttons are in the shape of a gourd, which symbolises longevity. The cheongsam is made of synthetic satin silk and comes with a matching shawl made of the same fabric. According to the donor, she was inspired by her grandmother who used the selendang back in Indonesia. Hence this cheongsam and the matching shawl are hybrid of Malay and Chinese influences.
