Tried & Tested: No
Loving the groovy print, bold colours and absolutely unusually cut mandarin collar with an edge; this beauty from Qipao designer Celene at a Cheongsam shop based in Hong Kong called Eve 55, is simply show stopping with a 1950s to 1960s vibe! Making a reanactment of 'In the Mood for Love' sceen very possible in our daily lives.....and no longer just a daydream.…
