As mentioned in my previous post, I am featuring CNY cheongsams from Miz Apparels (MA) for this one, amongst others.
You will notice that they are all identical mother and daughter dresses. Now, I think they are rather pretty for the little girls. In fact I think MA offers the prettiest little girl cheongsams in the marketplace, and if I had a daughter, I would get them for her. But I seriously don’t think the prints and designs are suitable for a mother. The adult model looks like she is in an upsized kiddy dress, totally not age-appropriate.
I met Lynn at the store, and she told me that for the upcoming CNY fashion, they have designed brooches to go with the dresses. Like in the above pictures, the man with top hat and mustache is one brooch, and there are others, such as a panda brooch to go with the panda print dress. I guess they are following the foot steps of Tong Tong Friendship Store, because one of the staff noticed the Tong TONG brooch I wore on my cheongsam and exclaimed it was cute. Lynn told her that she had seen other customers wearing similar brooches from Tong Tong as well.
MA does have something more appropriate for an adult. Lynn showed me the dress below which comes in three colors. Like I mentioned in my previous post, there is a nippon trend for the upcoming CNY cheongsams. Also like the blue floral print cheongsam from Blum (featured in last post), this design comes with an obi belt.
Other than the red color shown above, there is an orange and a black. I personally feel that the orange dress is really pretty and best of all, it comes with side pockets. I must say I am tempted by it. The dress is not overly complicated, unlike the one from Blum.
For my next post, I will be featuring cheongsams available at Chinatown.
