"Floral Dance Sleeves, Graceful and Agile"

Infusing the elegance and grace of the traditional Tai Chi Chuan with the agile charm of "floral dance sleeves," the fabric's texture carries the elegance of decorative window patterns. This qipao seems to embody the movements of a dancer, naturally exuding the rhythmic fluidity of Baguazhang, while the dance sleeves showcase a distinctive and confident demeanor.

Within this qipao, you can experience the essence of martial arts—a serene tranquility within flowing actions. The dance sleeves, full of flavor, act as a dancer's weapon, gracefully soaring and displaying an elegant posture. This is a unique fusion of martial arts aesthetics and fashion design, allowing you to radiate a distinctive charm in various settings.




Q: How can I choose the right size for a qipao with thorough loops?

A: Sizes for qipaos can vary between different brands, so it's best to measure your bust, waist, and hips in advance. Compare your measurements to the size chart, ensuring that all three measurements fit comfortably within the specified ranges. Choose the size that aligns closely with your measurements. Alternatively, you can choose a snug or slightly looser fit based on your personal preference. For trying on, please visit our physical store locations. Unlike the classic button-down tops, qipaos for women come in three size options:

【Thorough Loop Qipao】Sizes: Sparrow XS, Swan S, Phoenix M




We make different frame types based on the warrior types. If your measurements are between sizes, select a larger size for a looser fit or a smaller size for a tight fit.



DESIGN STORY

Long ago, I was curious – why is history called "History" in English, meaning "His Story"? Some scholars suggest that the earliest recorded writings were often associated with the military or government, essentially viewpoints documented by men.

So, is history truly "his story"? Then what about "her story"? Isn't that worth preserving as well?

Riding horses and engaging in warfare signified territorial expansion, acclaim, and glory – pursuits predominantly favored by men. Combat skills were akin to "soldiers on the battlefield," involving broad swords, swift horses, and the art of tactical maneuvers. The ease of donning and removing garments, symbolized by the thorough loop, echoes this physical mindset.


An alternative path for martial arts was its inclusion in ordinary households – a transference of skill, a personal challenge, a demonstration of expertise. This belonged to the realm of "leisurely mastery," akin to a chess match, where intent to conquer was hidden within contemplation – a gentle form of fortitude.

Men could lift heavy weights and throw spears, but women could carry children all day long. While Wing Chun boxing is said to have roots in women's combat, it might not necessarily be originated by them. Nonetheless, it undoubtedly discovered the intricate dynamics of the female physique and seamlessly incorporated them into martial arts – a brilliance beyond words.

For a while, I've wanted to create an attire exclusively for women. After much contemplation, I chanced upon Zhang Ziyi's Baguazhang portrayal in a movie. Wong Kar-wai, THE GRANMASTER of direction, skillfully depicted martial art in women through the lens, unveiling its elegance.

The gentle qipao, paired with the swift and intricate thorough loop, encompasses the twists of Bagua, the spirals of Tai Chi, and the spirit of Wing Chun – strength concealed within gentleness, subdued yet lavish.

Fly by Knight Creative isn't merely about recording History; we also yearn to hear Her Story.

"We aren't pursuing retro, but rather, recovering authenticity."

The founder, Daniel Huang, is a martial artist, kung fu instructor, and also the founder of Fly by Knight Courtyard Hotel, where he used to teach his guests kung fu before COVID.

Daniel found his passion for martial arts when he was a teen. Yet, it was not until he met the grandmaster, Adam Hsu, did he have a huge breakthrough. Hsu not only taught him Long Fist & Baji Quan, but also the philosophy and history of kung fu, including what a real kung fu attire looks like. It was where the journey started.

The purpose of this project is more than reviving a unique kung fu attire. What we really want to do is to promote Chinese martial arts, and how it benefits our body. Join us now and recover your sensitivity through kung fu training!
