A young Chinese woman has drawn attention at her university graduation in London by donning traditional Chinese attire, prompting online praise for being “confident and beautiful”.

Li Jinyi, 21, surprised onlookers while wearing traditional Chinese hanfu as she travelled from her home to University College London on the morning of her graduation ceremony on September 8.

Having studied in Britain since she was 13, the woman from eastern China’s Shandong province graduated from the university with a bachelor of architecture and chose hanfu, or the traditional clothing worn by Han people, to celebrate her big day.

Li said she wore hanfu for the occasion to “let Europe see the splendour of China”. She also did her own makeup and hairstyle to match her traditional attire.
