Someone who has ever seen even a glimpse of an Opera performance in Beijing will find it hard to forget it. Spectacular face paintings, colorful clothing, loud music, the delicate and stylized acting and a unique singing style. All this combined brings the unforgettable experience. Taking a deeper look into the dazzling fashion world of the famous Peking Opera clothing design we can get design ideas that incorporated with a western style of living will create an equally dazzling experience into your life as the opera performance itself! Sometimes these poses remind me of model photo shoots, except that the style in terms of coolness is just way on its own level. So in a sense its timeless design that could really be used in modern day fashion circles. In practical use not on the street but at home as something to decorate with.
So here I present to you some of the most beautiful outfits I have simply fallen in love with.
These women are called the Qingyi 青衣 which are virtuous ladies as you can see from the most elegant style and pose. The colors are well balanced into graceful and beautiful clothing for these aristocratic ladies.
The servants are the Huadan 花旦. Their character is more vivacious and are naturally younger in age. They wear blouses that are shorter and more humble, but the clothes are very colorful and feminine. Despite their beauty no emperor is yet to fall in love with one.
The Jing 净 have face painting and are warriors who possess all kinds of weaponry. The clothes are very dark and deep in style with some elegant yellow and red added. These are the clothes of a real masculine man, extremely elegant as well!
