Dresses of clouds

Ask me anything   Dedicated to traditional Chinese clothing and their modern twists. Mostly hanfu's, but also the outfits of other Chinese ethnicities.
I try to put up the ones who don't deviate too much from history, and point out where they do, but in general I don't mind modifications to hanfu for theatrical purposes as long as they preserve the general look.
theasianmuggle asked: Hello! Love your blog. Do you happen to know where I could order Chinese brands like Liebo if I live in the US? Thank you!


Answer:

If you don’t know Chinese, you could try SwanMarks: http://www.swanmarks.com/clothes-cid1 I’ve never tried it before, though, and I don’t know if it’s legit.

Or  you can use an ordering service like panli or dotdotbuy and buy from the company on tmall. I’ve used both to buy things from China and didn’t have problems with either one. If you’re not in a hurry, dotdotbuy tends to be cheaping in terms of shipping.

There are a few outfits that aren’t bad for a drama hanfu. I think the last one’s alright.
