Why this is a
Masterpiece

Princesses wore the green wonsam, and depending on the ceremony, a dragon- or phoenix-embroidered patch was added to the top of the dress. A pair of patches embroidered with a phoenix in golden thread decorates the front and the back of this green wonsam, adding to the lavishness and dignity of the dress and proving that it was worn at the royal court.

History of the Object
Wonsam was a ceremonial dress worn by royal and noble women. Its color and decorative patterns varied according to the wearer's status.
