The name of the "Hanfu Grandma" is Liu Weixiu, and she is 77 years old . Liu Weixiu said that she first wore Hanfu to cooperate with students in filming a group of videos, and she did not want to form an indissoluble bond with Hanfu from then on.

Recalling the role he once sang in "Jiao'er", Liu Weixiu said with a smile: "Due to my own conditions, I can't sing the main role, so I can only sing the supporting role. But red flowers also need green leaves to match, and I am that little green leaf."

Although he has never been able to stand in the C position on the opera stage, decades of experience in Peking Opera allow Liu Weixiu to get into the groove as soon as he takes the stage.

Different from character-based costumes, the Hanfu catwalk focuses on showing off the costumes. Every time before preparing to go on stage, Liu Weixiu will work with his "tongpao" (Hanfu enthusiasts) to design movements based on the characteristics of the clothes. Liu Weixiu will also try to add elements of Peking opera to achieve better results.
