Lonely Planet review

This captivating private museum was opened by the owner of Chinese fashion giant Metersbonwe to display the traditional attire of Han Chinese and ethnic groups from around the country. The collection is enormous (not everything is on display) and ranges from Emperor Qianlong’s dragon robes and Shànghǎi qípáo (cheongsam dress) to delicate embroidery from China’s southwest and even an outfit made of salmon skin. It’s located on the fifth floor of their flagship store (those who want to take a look at today’s youth fashion may also be interested in checking out the store – Metersbonwe has over 1800 locations across China).
