Hey western media
let’s get something straight,
This is a kimono. It’s worn by Japanese people.
This is not a kimono. It is a hanbok. It’s worn by Korean people.
This also not a kimono. This is a Hanfu. It was worn by Han Chinese people until the Qing.
This is also not a kimono. This is a Qipao. It’s originally a Manchu dress, but upon the Qing, it was worn by Han Chinese people as well.
This still not a kimono. This is a modern adaptation of the Qipao.
This is an Ao Dai. It’s worn by Vietnamese people. Still not a kimono.
This is an Ao tu than, worn by Vietnamese people centuries before the Ao Dai. Still not a kimono.
So I ask you to stop referring to all East Asian dresses as kimono, because it’s not the same thing.
