The qipao is a stylish, sophisticated form-fitting dress that emerged in 1920s Shanghai. Meet Jane Zhu: she's studied qipao patternmaking and construction from master tailors. Celebrated in Shanghai and New York for her contemporary, made-to-order luxury qipao, Zhu's been featured in Vogue, Elle China, Harper's Bazaar China, Newsweek, and more. She will share her qipao designs and give a talk on the history and craftsmanship of these iconic, versatile dresses.

Make your own traditional Chinese button, design your own ready-to-wear pinback button, chat with a docent in the Shanghai galleries, hang out with friends over cocktails and music by DJ Quantum, and revel in the pleasure of fashion, design, and Asian art.
