A Beginner’s Guide to Hanfu: The PPT Presentation

Powerpoint presentation: Hanfu, the (Real) Traditional Chinese Clothing

For prolonged periods of time, this Hanfu Facebook group has queried if there is any way to classify the “hundreds of designs” throughout Chinese fashion history into something making sense, or whether Hanfu should be “modernized”, or if some Hanfu designs could be made more “practical”…such are common questions to what Hanfu, the traditional Chinese clothing, is all about.

Behold: TorGuqin presents: A Comprehensive Powerpoint (2007) Presentation on the subject. Please feel free to download and watch this. (Unfortunately, a .ppt document is not available, as a compatable file would near to 50MB in size)

The entire show is un-audio’d, and fully automated. Clicking the mouse button skips the entire slide to the end.

Feel free to leave any extra questions here, or in the Hanfu Facebook group.
