Ming-style Wedding Dress

Ming-style Wedding Dress



The above link is to the Hanfu Review | 漢服觀察 by Jensen Liu, a PhD student in the United States and excellent blogger on current Chinese issues. This blog picks up movements in China pertaining to Hanfu (positive or negative), and is an excellent tracker of the tradition in action – for the English language.

I am happy to announce that I have been recently appointed as an author for this said blog. Soon we will see more intensive reports for this beautiful tradition in the news feed. Please note that this blog is by original intent a blog for guqin information in the Toronto, ON area, but by no means will Hanfu essays here cease to exist or discontinue – theoretical arguments and essays of such nature will still be posted here.

    Thank you for your efforts. I just thought there should be a channel to record and share news and info about hanfu in ENGLISH. But to my surprise there was not any such website. So i just started one.

    I will keep it updated. Hope I can make friends with hanfu lovers around the world and help spread the voice of Hanfu.

    I hope the groom in the pic is a graduate as I am of the belief that Ming court dress is only entitled to those who either hold office or those who pass the civil service examinations i.e. modern equiv. a university graduate. Plus, he is not wearing a wusha!

      Upon marriage, a common person is entitled for the day to assume the robe and gear of a 9th rank official.

      Since they are wearing Ming-style clothing, the last section would apply. The lack of headgear is indeed a problem – but also representative of OUR time.

    Satsuki Shizuka is right. The men’s wedding Hanfu is the robe of a 9th rank official
