As promised, I will show you my chinese kwa that I wore during my wedding twenty five years ago. Look at the collar, you can see how small my neck was 25 years ago...lol. I think I grow one size bigger now...hehehe.
Take a good look at the blouse, the dragon is alway on top of the phoenix. The dragon represents the male who is the head of the family while the phoenix the female.
The kwa is still in a very good condition and they were embroidered and the threads are still intact and the material is made of good quality unlike the one I show you yesterday, the material is of poorer quality. There are not many of this design on sale now . Geez now I sounded very antique...lol.
Closer look at the embroideries of the dragon and the phoenix.
This is the back of the blouse with a dragon on the left and the phoenix on the right. Dont you agree this is just like a piece of beautiful artwork?
