The Tibetan costumes local residents wear in the streets of Lhasa, capital of southwest China's Tibet, show increasing charm with changing trends after years' inheritance and innovation.

Nowadays, the Tibetan costumes selling in shops are simpler and prettier, greatly changed in fabric and style compared with traditional ones.

"In fact, I feel that the style of male costume hasn't changed much, but that of female is tending to be more fashionable with a variety of fabrics and patterns." said Tsering Lhamo, a costume designer in Tibet Music and Dance Troupe.

Over the past decades, the most remarkable change of Tibetan costumes is color, said Tsering Lhamo, who has worked as a designer for over 20 years and has designed numerous theater costumes.

In the 1990s, the local residents in Lhasa wore costumes with simple color such as dark blue or brown, but now their Tibetan costumes are more colorful and beautiful.

The styles have changed much as well.
