There’s no denying that this dress’s modest silhouette and sparkly red fabric somehow creates a subtle sexy appeal.

Taking on a more innocent look, Sebastian Gunawan’s sheer white dress can be worn not only for Chinese New Year festivities, but for any other occasion. Although the sheer fabric naturally exuberates a sensual aura, its lace details and choice of colour balances it out and instead creates an angelic look.

Although it doesn’t really show from this angle, Sebastian Gunawan has created the most intricate sleeve details that would remind anyone of marvellous royal dresses. While the colour might be neutral, with this structured pleated skirt, any lucky lady would look regal yet still playful at the same time.

If you’re looking for an edgy outfit to wear to your Chinese New Year dinner, we’ve got the perfect one for you. You might think that a fitted ensemble such as this might look simple and sleek, but the combination of a classic uniform-like top half and the glittery deep red skirt will bring out the bold fashion chameleon in you.

While fitted cheongsams might seem appealing for Chinese New Year festivities, there’s no denying that upon leaving a dinner party they might not have the most flattering silhouette. You might want to consider beautiful hassle-free outerwear such as this that will have your back if you are thinking of having a feast with your family and friends.

Similar to the previous short outerwear, this long dress will still stay flattering on any occasion while adding a little bit of curve with its A-line shape. Needless to say that isn’t its only appeal: the delicate blue flower embroidery against the black silky smooth fabric truly brings out the intricate details, just as this dress would bring out the beauty in any of its wearers.
