To add to the fun fair mood of the Urban Mid-Autumn Lantern Carnival 2017, the Intangible Cultural Heritage Office has chosen two items on the first Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Hong Kong – "Paper Crafting Technique" and "The Sewing Technique of Hong Kong-style Cheongsam", and merged them into an impressive display of both. The lanterns, handmade by a local master craftsman using the traditional paper-crafting expertise, will be in the shape of pretty cheongsam - the traditional gowns worn by ladies. Visitors can get to know more about the invaluable intangible cultural heritage of Hong Kong as we celebrate the festival together.
