Imperial Dragon in the Roaring Twenties: Qing Dynasty Dress Re-Made

Imperial Dragon in the Roaring Twenties: Qing Dynasty Dress Re-Made AbstractThe study focuses on the methodology of research on recycled clothing. Two Chinese Dragon Robes from the collection of the Náprstek Museum were remade as a men’s jacket and a woman’s evening dress. Both examples are described, analysed and interpreted from two points of view: as authentic Dragon Robes in its original Imperial China setting, as well as newly made clothes in the context of the early 20th century Western culture. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Annals of the Náprstek Museum de Gruyter
