As more and more young people are wearing hanfu, the traditional clothing of the Han ethnic group, industries of hanfu manufacture and traditional Chinese culture thrive.

Ran Dan is a huge fan of hanfu in Beijing. "I started to know hanfu in 2011 when I accidentally saw some hanfu photos and was completely stunned by its beauty. Soon I had my first set of hanfu. At present, I have more than 50 sets of hanfu, and over 80 single pieces," Ran shared her fascination with hanfu.

Unlike other people who wear traditional ethnic clothing on special occasions, however, Ran wears hanfu on a daily basis.

"Many people think hanfu is inconvenient in daily life. In fact, there are many styles of hanfu. Wide and long sleeved hanfu may not be convenient, but narrow sleeved ones will not affect work at all," she said.

So far, the hanfu market is estimated to have more than two million consumers across China, and the total market value of the sector has reached around 1.09 billion yuan (US $ 154 million).
