"An Expert on Traditional Chinese Dresses"
- Los Angeles Channel 18
Hailed by Los Angeles Channel 18 as "An Expert on Traditional Chinese Dresses", by WCCDaily as "The Perfect Combination of Talent and Creativity", by Chinese World Journal as "A designer with true talent", and being special-featured on IAVC TV, fashion designer Helen Zhou has garnered accolades for her innovative thinking and unique creativity.
After giving her farewell as a successful ballet dancer in her native country China at the age of 25, Ms. Zhou stepped into her second passion, the world of fashion design. Combined with her natural artistic talent and love for making "wearable art", she opened her first fashion design company in her native city at the age of 28 which quickly expanded throughout the country. She is the first prize winner of the 1st Annual "Clever Style" Fashion Contest in Chengdu City, China; she is also the first prize winner of "Apparel and Tailor" Grand Contest in Shanghai, China.
Having spent nearly 30 years in fashion, Ms. Zhou's passion for Chinese Dress (Chi Pao, Qi Pao, or Cheongsam) has only grown stronger. Besides being a designer, Ms. Zhou carefully handcrafts each dress with hand-picked understudies and seamstresses, making sure that every step a dress is to its absolute perfection.
At Brocade Apparel, we make only high-end Qi Pao dresses for you because we believe that "excellent quality" and "Qi Pao" are synonyms. Our goal is to make you the Qi Pao you've always dreamed of, and a Qi Pao that reflects your beauty and style.
