If it weren't for the Qing Dynasty,we will be wearing modern day Hanfu and we will see Hanfu inspired fashion featured in Chinese fashion shows right?

Hi, thanks for the question!

It’s hard to say what would’ve happened if certain historical events had been different. For example, even if the Qing dynasty had not existed, we can’t say for sure what would have been in its stead. It could’ve been another foreign-ruled dynasty, for instance. However, if the Ming dynasty had continued uninterrupted, or if it had been followed by another Han Chinese-ruled dynasty – then yes, most likely, we would be wearing modern day Hanfu and we would see Hanfu-inspired fashion featured in Chinese fashion shows.

However, there’s no need to imagine what “could’ve been”, because we’re seeing it right now thanks to the hanfu revival movement. These days, wearing Hanfu – both traditional and modified – is becoming more popular, and more Hanfu-inspired fashion is appearing in Chinese fashion shows ^^

Hope this helps!

Traditional Chinese Hanfu Street Fashion 

Influenced by the hanfu revival movement, more Chinese youth are wearing traditional hanfu casually as a form of fashion and self-expression.

Do bijia come in different styles? If so, what are some of them?

Hi, thanks for the question!

Fouryearsofshades has a good write-up about Bijia here. I’ll reiterate what she said, with additional comments and pictures.

Bijia/比甲 is a sleeveless jacket with side slits (although depending on the cutting, it may seem to have a tiny sleeves when worn). You can think of it as the “vest” of traditional Chinese hanfu. It’s typically worn over Aoqun/袄裙. It became a common hanfu style during the Song dynasty, when it was known as Beixin/背心. Later, during the Ming dynasty, it became commonly known as Bijia. Below – depictions of Bijia in Ming-Qing historical art:

Bijia does come in different styles – namely, different types of collars and different lengths. Its length can reach the hips/buttocks, the knees, all the way to one foot off the ground. In addition, it may or may not have buttons. Below – long parallel-collar Bijia:

These are the collar variations for Bijia:

1. Cross-collar (交领/Jiao Ling):

2. Parallel-collar (直领/Zhi Ling or 对襟/Dui Jin):

3. Square-collar (方领/Fang Ling):

4. Round-collar (圆领/Yuan Ling):

The Bijia’s versatility allows it to be easily incorporated into modified hanfu and hanfu-inspired fashion (hanyuansu):
