Of all the ancient silk fabrics, brocade represents the highest techniques. Reflecting the quintessence of Chinese silk weaving skills, Nanjing yunjin, is one of the three well-known brocades made in ancient China. At present, the Nanjing Brocade is mainly produced in Qinhuai, Jianye, Baixia, Xuanwu, and Qixia districts of Nanjing City. More than one thousand and five hundred years ago, there were historical records about Nanjing silk fabrics, but no tangible articles can be found today.
To all my high school followers who are in the midst of prom dress shopping: Looking at photos of the night when you're older will be a lot less painful if you leave the excess rhinestones and gaudy fabrics to your other classmates. Classy is fabulous and timeless. (P.S. All these dresses are under $500)
