  A model team composed of middle-aged women in cheongsams (also known as qipao in China) performed in a show on Shanghai’s Nanjing Road Pedestrian Street, to celebrate the Double Ninth Festival.

  The stylish dresses were infused with traditional Chinese elements, such as blue and white porcelain, peony and plum blossom patterns. With folding fans and oilcloth umbrellas in hands, the models walked slowly down the Nanjing Road Pedestrian Street, showcasing the beauty of Chinese qipao to the passers-by.
