Imagine my excitement in discovering that there was a world wide Qipao day held so close to my birthday....and a non-profit Chinese Qipao Society with branches across the world! As you darlings know, my fascination and collecting passion of the Qipao has been a main focus of Walking in May....bringing me through interesting avenues and meeting lots of lovely new faces. So this new discovery has definitely set some interesting new thoughts in the clockworks, it shall be a new quest for me to hunt down the Chinese Qipao Society's UK branch....or perhaps start one should I be lucky enough! But first let me introduce you to this new little Qipao (Cheongsam) phenomenon sweeping gently across the globe comb by comb. The Global Qipao Day involved Qipao fashion and dance shows across different countries which had a total of over 150,000 Qipao (Cheongsam) wearers participating, mainly organised by the many world wide branches of the Chinese Qipao Society. In addition the main 'Chinese Qipao Society' based in China also claimed a Qipao Guinness World Record on the 16th May 2015 for 'the largest gathering for people wearing the Cheongsam in one location'! As you darlings might remember....I was actually wearing a Qipao to celebrate my birthday with 'Zen Yoga and Vintage Picnic' fundraiser in Greenwich Park (London) on the very same day without knowing about this event or this international society...how miraculously coincidental. The universe must have aligned what I love to give me a very lovely surprise, though not knowing I was taking part in an international Qipao day, I am glad I did not miss it entirely in this magical way.
