As Chinese New Year approaches, Glitz is here to help by providing a list of the best Malaysia cheongsam shops that offer traditional to modern designs. While a bright red cheongsam is a classic choice, several local designers add a fresh new twist to the celebration garments, making them unique to wear all year.

Choosing the best cheongsam shops is no longer a problem. Being stuck in traffic is a thing of the past because you can now easily order directly from an online store. On the other hand, if you prefer to feel and touch before making a selection, we have provided a few stores with outlets for you as well!

The Best Cheongsam Shops In Malaysia

1. Doublewoot

Anything by Doublewoot is bound to turn heads! The Malaysian fashion brand is well-known for its high-quality clothing, which explains why they sell out pretty quickly each time. Some garments are already sold out as you read this, so there’s no time to waste.

Doublewoot’s newly launched “The Elevated Oriental Charm” collection is simply to die for. We can’t take our eyes off the new Draciaz Qipao in maroon, made with luxurious silk satin material and featuring a diamond keyhole neckline. This year, Doublewoot also announced their very first Fú Qipao Shirt for men. Show up to the function while rocking matching outfits with your sweetheart.

2. CheongSam by Jane 

CheongSam by Jane was founded in 2019 with the purpose of making cheongsams accessible and exquisite. They have beautiful traditional qipaos as well as modern qipaos. Their new Geometric Qipao above is the perfect example of masterful blending between modern and traditional.

CheongSam by Jane also offers a wide range of sizes, ranging from XS to 5XL. Aside from Cheongsam, they also provide gorgeous accessories like earrings, hair pins, and clutches that you may mix with your favourite ensembles for a complete look.

If you prefer qipaos that are out of the ordinary, Fern is a great place to start searching.

5. Nala

Nala first started as a pattern design store and is currently owned by Lisette Scheers, aka the ‘Queen of Patterns’. The brand has since grown from its humble beginnings, now owning a physical store located at the women’s clothes department at Seibu, TRX. “Under Nala’s Umbrella” is their latest 2024 Chinese New Year collection.

“Under Nala’s Umbrella” draws inspiration from the nurturing shelter of a mother’s umbrella, seamlessly fusing sentiments of the past with a modern touch. Nala also offers a variety of accessories that you may want to pair with your ensembles. We love their silk scarves that can be turned into headbands.

Khoon Hooi is one of the best Malaysian cheongsam shops, evoking elegance, classicality, and luxury. The Khoon Hooi Chinese New Year 2024 collection welcomes you to the main protagonist’s story, Madam Soong. The leader in her family’s silk textile enterprise, she has been occupied throughout the day, diligently making sure that everything is set in anticipation of her children’s return.

One of our favourites from the opulent collection is the coral “Lyn” dress depicted in the left picture above. Crafted from textured satin fabric, the two-piece qipao includes a draped crop top adorned with floral beadwork and a tapered skirt with a side slit and bow embellishments.

7. Brian Khoo

As is apparent from the Chinese New Year-themed catsuit above, Brian Khoo’s designs are on the more daring side. BK’s Lunar 2024 collection, Oceanic Splendour, is inspired by the enchanting depths of the ocean and the submerged landscape beneath the water’s surface. You can spot creative elements of dragons and aquatic wildlife present in the pieces.

The aforementioned daring catsuit is named the Sheer Dragon Catsuit and is currently out of stock. Opt for the more traditional Flared Shoulder Midi Dress in the collection, in either bright red or yellow, in honour of the Lunar New Year.

9. Behati

Behati’s designs are reminiscent of high fashion, but don’t let that deter you from checking out their elegant yet bold cheongsams. For 2024, Behati announced the Dynasty collection in four different drops while featuring the Machino X Behati Double Chinese Knot Flats & Heels—just in case you’re still on the lookout for Chinese New Year shoes as well.

In the Dynasty collection that has dropped so far, we’re most drawn to the Ves Tang Krop in Yellow Blossom. Another two-piece qipao, the puffy bubble skirt and crop top with crown Mandarin collar will definitely turn heads at the reunion dinner—not to mention the bright neon pattern.

10. Dreamscape

Online store Dreamscape is known for selling lingerie and nightwear, but that’s far from all. You can also expect a multitude of dreamy cheongsams at Dreamscape in a wide range of colours, but primarily in soft, muted shades. The Spring Water Lily Mini Qipao in Pink shown above is a stunning example for the coquette girlies who love to appear demure and adorable.

We are also fans of the Koi Fortune Midi Qipao in Dreamscape’s Qipao 2024 collection. The halter neckline dress in pastel green also comes with a matching knee-length sheer cardigan, a smart addition as cheongsams are known to leave us ladies a little chilly.

11. The Black Bow 

The Black Bow is a favourite for Chinese New Year shopping, the go-to annual answer for where to buy qipao online. The sheer range of festive clothes provided by The Black Bow means there’s something for everyone to admire. The Year of the Dragon ushers in The Graceful Oriental collection, available at their Chinese New Year pop-up store on the second floor at Isetan KLCC.

A standout amongst The Graceful Oriental’s offerings is Ying Fei Oriental Mesh Top and Pants as shown above, a three-piece set in ivory. Ying Fei is a breath of fresh air during the bright and colourful season. More importantly, many of The Black Bow’s cheongsams come in multiple pieces in each set, so you can mix and match to your heart’s content.
