Why is the Chinese Traditional Wedding Costume ( Kua裙褂 ) from Hong Kong so expensive? | PRECIOUS Wed

Many celebrities of Chinese descent from China including Hong Kong and Taiwan who tied the knot recently flaunt their traditional wedding costumes during their ceremony, like Tavia Yeung 楊怡, Myolie Wu胡杏儿, Angelababy, Linda Chung 鍾嘉欣, Christy Chung 鍾麗緹 to name a few, embracing the tradition.

The Hong Kong Kua has then become even more popular in Chinese weddings in Asia, and Malaysia is catching up. It was once deemed as old-fashioned in the 90s and no one would wear Kua for their wedding, until Hong Kong Cantopop singer Miriam Yeung 楊千嬅 brought back the tradition when she wore a full Gold Silver threaded Kua in her wedding in 2009.
