Huishan Zhang's trademark piece is the qipao, the body-hugging women's dress, often associated with 1920s Shanghai, bringing together Chinese culture and traditions with western society and a modern twist. Here, he has reconstructed the traditional qipao and the classical motif of dragon robes in silk organza, hand embroidery and lace.
