Transform into a historical beauty or Prince Charming in authentic reproductions of han fu 汉服. Our dressers will also style your hair and apply light make-up to complete the picture. Experience traditional Han Chinese dress, known as han fu 汉服, and have a full make-over. You’ll learn about the history of Han clothing in China, and discover how interest in beautiful traditional dress is having a renaissance today. There’ll be plenty of opportunity for photos and selfies, so you can surprise your social media followers with your make-over!

You will also have a demonstration in the art of classical Han Chinese dance, and then have the chance to learn some of the steps yourself!
