Shanghai Museum: Cultural Clothing
This was an awesome exhibit at the museum, tons of cultural outfits that I wish I owned.
Unfortunately, the pieces are not dated nor their ethnic regions specified, but I assume this is semi-current garb. It’s especially hard to say the location, however, considering how many ethnic groups are in China, but I would guess the first picture is a Jino costume, the fourth picture a Geija costume, and the sixth an Oroqen.
