Hanfu movement sweeps China in revival of traditional culture

Girls dressed in "Hanfu", or Han clothing, prepare for an event to mark the traditional Qixi festival, the Chinese equivalent of Valentine's Day, at a park in Beijing, China, August 7, 2019. Chinese for 'Han clothing', "Hanfu" is based on the idea of donning costumes worn in bygone eras by China's dominant Han ethnicity. Some of the most popular styles are from the Ming, Song and Tang dynasties. Hanfu enthusiasts doubled to two million in 2018 from a year earlier, according to a survey by Hanfu Zixun, a popular community account on the Wechat social media platform.

Many Hanfu followers like the clothes for the fashion statement, but some, say its significance is greater. "It's to propagate China's traditional culture," said another girl, who only gave her surname, Li.

Li is a devotee of the Hanfu movement, which has spanned a decade and in the last year has seen a spike in followers, partly thanks to social media. Li donned her first gown in March and has lost count of the Hanfu outfits in her wardrobe, she says.
