On April 20, 2022 UN Chinese Language Day launched a Special Program "China Chic", features a modern take on traditional Chinese heritage, highlighting interactivity, innovation, and youthfulness. The event has attracted hundreds of video works from young people around the world. Among them, the important guest Francesco Pisano (Chair of The Cultural Activities Committee At UNOG) selected a work about Chinese Hanfu costume, which is about the in-depth communication between the famous Chinese actor Luo Yunxi and the Hanfu society. It shows the beauty of Chinese Hanfu and sends good wishes for it. In the video, actor Luo Yunxi shares his experience of wearing Hanfu: "Wearing Hanfu has nothing to do with the shape of your body, just bring your own unique energy to it." Afterward, Luo Yunxi talked to two Hanfu lovers. Zhang Junwei shared the history of Hanfu and some features of Hanfu costumes. "The full name of Hanfu is the traditional costume of the Han nationality, different dynasties have different Hanfu." "The middle seam (in hanfu) has a special meaning, 'When a gentleman is born in the world, he should be honest and impartial.'." Zhang Junwei said. During the conversation with Hanfu enthusiast Lü Xiaowei, she shared her experience of wearing Hanfu back in 2005, and she was proud of the flourishing of Hanfu. Francesco Pisano said the video surprised him, the revival of traditional culture wasn't started by those who are more senior and older. And it's interesting to see how young people want to reconnect to their traditional culture. At the end of the video, Luo Yunxi shared his good wishes for the revival of Hanfu: "What brings traditional culture back to modern society, is the rediscovery of ancient Chinese culture. No matter what the current trends are, wearing Hanfu is the best way to inherit tradition." View the full video (the hanfu portion is at 25′-30′): https://youtu.be/XbGDws9eoiA
