Hi there! This is my art blog where I put my paintings, sketches and fashion inforgraphics. As you can see, I'm very obsessed with heavily influenced by fashions of the past, 80's &90's Hong Kong cinema, ATLA and folktales.

Updated: Evolution of Vietnamese Clothing

Full Version can be found here. Original refs in my pinterest.

Squeezing in some time to update the Fashion Timeline of Vietnamese Clothing. I added 3 new figures and tweaked a few others. I think the transitions between 18th to 19th century makes a little more sense now. I’m still scratching my head over the seemingly sudden change from “hanfu-like robes” (Le Dynasty, 1428-1788) to buttons and collars (Nguyen dynasty, 1802-1945) thing. According to the historical fashion documentary, Di Tim Trang Phuc Viet, Le dynasty folks were vehemently against Qing dynasty styles (1644-1912) but Nguyen dynasty was not…?

It also appears that early 19th c. Cochinchina/Southern Vietnamese women were the early adopters of the whole turban/”khan dong” trend and not Tonkin/Northerners as I had initially thought. I’m highly impressed that Le dynasty and early Nguyen dynasty folks, from low to high class, primarily wore silk.

The timeline is still far from done, I hope to be able to add more clothing from the 2-10 A.D. centuries. 

I’m always on the lookout for more refs, so please point out any paintings/works of art I might have missed!
