Chinese clothing culture is being showcased for the first time at an exhibition hosted by the National Museum of History of Moldova. Yang Wenbin, China’s Ambassador to Moldova, emphasized the exhibition’s significance in promoting cultural exchange between China and Moldova, expressing hope that the event will strengthen cooperation between the two countries, IPN reports.

The exhibition, titled “Dialogue in Space and Time,” traces the evolution of Chinese clothing from the 14th century through the Ming and Qing dynasties to the modern era. Traditional clothing items from the Miao, Tibetan, and Uyghur Chinese peoples are also on display. China’s ambassador to Moldova noted that around 30 handmade suits are featured. He highlighted that the People’s Republic of China is a multiethnic country, where each ethnic group has its traditions and customs, and invited Moldovan citizens to visit China to discover this diversity.

Eugen Sava, director general of the National Museum of History of Moldova, remarked that this is a premiere exhibition in the Republic of Moldova, reflecting the history of clothing of national minorities from ancient times to the present. The exhibits are exact replicas of traditional costumes made in China and brought to Moldova. He noted that the exhibition is a main component of the cooperation between the National Museum of History and the People’s Republic of China.

The exhibition was inaugurated on International Museum Day and will be open to the public until June 21.
