In contemporary China, the Hanfu Movement was initiated to revitalize traditional Chinese clothing and culture. The purpose of this thesis was to examine hanfu’s agency in self-expression. This article examined the self-presentation of hanfu bloggers on Weibo, suggesting that hanfu items provide a diverse range of opportunities for expressing one’s identity in terms of consumption capacity, cultural capital, and individuality. Through their depiction of the ancient aristocracy, the hanfu enthusiasts demonstrate their ideal selves and the lives they aspire to. Moreover, hanfu can be considered that provide a solution for resolving the contradiction between tradition and modernity through the romantic retrospection of past.
