Trans representation in the media is so important, and to be a part of that in this SS20 editorial celebrating the spectrum of gender/expression really means the world to me. We deserve to be visible! 🧡
Is there any magazine dedicated to Hanfu in China?
Hi, thanks for the question!
As far as I know, there isn’t a print magazine solely dedicated to hanfu in China. However, there’s a monthly magazine called Chinese Heritage/中华遗产 (which is a part of the Chinese National Geography/中国国家地理magazine series) that focuses on traditional Chinese culture, often including hanfu. Each issue focuses on a specific topic. For example, there are issues on traditional Chinese weddings (above and below left) and traditional Chinese makeup (below right):
The magazine also published a comprehensive 296-page supplement on traditional Chinese clothing called Chinese Dress/中国衣冠:
The magazine’s hanfu content is high quality and well-researched, and I strongly recommend it for those interested in hanfu:
If interested, you can purchase the 2018 - 2020 issues of Chinese Heritage magazine & supplement here on Chinese National Geography’s official Taobao website!
If any followers know of other magazines, print or digital, that feature hanfu, please do share! ^^
