Author:Cui Wenjing  Date:2019-05-22  Clicks:

Hanfu is the traditional dress of the Han nationality, which has taken on different characteristics throughout its historical development. Hanfu shows unique Chinese style intergrating the magnificence of the Han Dynasty, the elegance of the Jin Dynasty, the openness of the Tang Dynasty, and the dignity of the Song Dynasty with the temperance of the Ming Dynasty. The increasing attention and exploration of classical culture has made Hanfu a new fashion. On campus, it's common to see young and energetic students clad in Hanfu. The traditional costumes with unique charm and the historical architecture are adding radiance to each other, initiating a dialogue between the ancient glamour and modern fasion.
