This picture was taken in Shanghai in the 1930s or 1940s. Most of the ladies in this photo, with curled hair arranged in forehead-exposed hairstyles and fashionable accessories such as glasses with slim golden frames, stylish watches and cute small earrings, are in sleeveless cheongsams, which are full of varied details though in similar models. The selection of textiles, for instance, varies from cheongsam to cheongsam, ranging from plain cotton cloth, burnout velvet, jacquard satin to printed patterned silk fabric.
