"New Bride & Groom"

As the “Victorian Era” began to change into the “Edwardian” one, so too did dress and styles in the British Crown Colony of Hong Kong.  For younger Chinese men, “pigtails” were seen as a symbol of the old, decadent, down-trodden "Middle Kingdom".  Smart, short hair was adopted as one symbol of modernity and being part of the new 20th Century.  Women and girls also started to cut their hair and emulate their Western counterparts.  At the same time, traditional Chinese costume was being simplified and becoming more comfortable and practical to wear.  This thoroughly modern young Bride & Groom exemplify the new movement.
