The phoenix is a mythical creature traditionally depicted in the ancient Chinese queen‘s crown (Fengguan) and dresses, symbolizing royalty and preciousness. Nowadays the phoenix is often depicted in cheongsam and Chinese wedding gown (qun gua) as a blessed symbol of good fortune, prosperity and genuine love. This pattern is an avant garde depiction of the mystic phoenix in all her glory, with luxurious flying feathers to add a dynastic touch to the modern bride.
