Tailor Leung Ching Wah and his wife Leung Fung Pui Chun opened their business selling qipaos, a type of traditional Chinese dress, in 1965. Their shop in Hong Kong has catered to celebrities and also made the dresses for Wong Kar Wai's 2000 film 'In the mood for love'. But the iconic qipao now only tends to be worn on special occasions, with just a few tailors keeping the craft alive.
