Modern Hanfu is inherited from the essence of traditional Han clothing and has been innovated and developed in combination with the needs of modern social life. It has distinctive traditional and distinctive national characteristics and fashion colors. It presents not only the appearance of fashion and the flu but also the restoration.
The Historical Origin of Modern Hanfu
Modern Hanfu is the inheritance and development of traditional Hanfu.
Hanfu has a long history and is luxuriant.
The agricultural civilization in the plain of East Asia is the environment for the development of Hanfu.
In terms of time, the memory of childhood is in the early pre-Qin period, the youth style in the middle Han and Tang Dynasties, and the adult model in the near ancient song and Ming Dynasties.
In space, the Yellow River and the Yangtze River are the cradles, the Great Wall desert is the stage, and the western regions of the five ridges are the paradise.
Han clothing and other brothers’ national clothing draw lessons from each other and evolve together. The clothing of many Asian Nations comes from traditional Chinese clothing — Han clothing.
The Development Process of Modern Hanfu
From the perspective of the development history of Hanfu movement, the development process of Hanfu can be divided into four generations.
Before 2001, a very small number of people advocated and wore Hanfu, but it was only an individual phenomenon and did not form a social phenomenon. Therefore, it was not included in the history of the Hanfu movement, but it could be regarded as a pioneer.
The first generation of Hanfu was born in 2001 and dominated the field of Hanfu from 2001 to the beginning of 2003. At that time, Hanfu did not enter the real society, or could be called network Hanfu. At that time, the situation of Hanfu was sarcastic, sarcastic, desperate to find out the dark, maliciously slandered, and few supporters.
The historical contribution of the first generation of Hanfu was to put forward the concept of Hanfu revival, but it did not form a systematic theory and failed to make an accurate exposition on the positioning of modern Hanfu.
The second generation of Hanfu was born in 2003 and dominated the field of Hanfu from the beginning of 2003 to 2005. At this time, Hanfu has entered the real life, and the situation of Hanfu has begun to improve. Although there are still many voices to deny and slander Hanfu, a considerable number of supporters have emerged.
The historical contribution of the second generation of Hanfu people is to solve the theoretical problem of integrating Hanfu into modern society, and to establish a relatively systematic theory of Hanfu movement.
The third generation of Hanfu refers to the Han clothing industry since the beginning of 2006. Through the arduous efforts of the former two generations of Hanfu, since the beginning of 2006, Hanfu has gradually taken on a prairie fire. It has rapidly appeared in the north and south of the Yangtze River, even in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Nanyang, European and American Chinese communities. Although there are many misunderstandings, Hanfu has become a well-known concept, and positive media reports appear in large numbers.
The historical contribution of the third generation of Hanfu mainly lies in the dissemination, and makes the concept of Hanfu into the mainstream society.
No matter how developed Hanfu, we need professional designers to breakthrough in the shape of Hanfu; we need more exploration and construction in how to combine Hanfu with life; we need to establish a profound theory of Hanfu movement in the combination of Hanfu and traditional culture. The development of modern Hanfu still has a long way to go.
