About Shanghai Tang
Dragons breathe beautiful benign flames from your shoulder. Shanghai Tang takes motifs and styles from its Chinese heritage to create novel clothing that you can wear wherever you are in the world. Based in Hong Kong, businessman David Tang started the label in 1994 to revitalize fashion in the region. His company merges 21st century modernity with early 20th century Chinese fashion. You can see the influence of the elegant cheongsam, a close-fitting gown with a high collar that was popular with fashionable Chinese socialites of the 1920s. If you love this adorable style, there are several dresses available with a similar design in a variety of lengths, including one made of fine silver lace that creates an abstract geometric pattern against black textured organza. The engraved moonstone buttons at the neckline add a touch of understated chic. A similar neckline appears in richly textured wool tops that have a more relaxed silhouette that gives them a modern look. For contemporary styles with a unique Chinese flair, Shanghai Tang clothing can be found in the large inventory on eBay.
