Shops in NYC - Qipao and favors

My fiance and I are going up to NYC this weekend.  I want to get a custom-made qipao, and looking for traditional items (not tacky, like fortune cookies) for the favors.

Anyone have a favorite shop???  Any help would be...well..helpful

Thanks!

    Peony Red on Centre St. near Grand St. Their amazon site doesn't have qipaos but their FB page does. The owner is very helpful too.

    I second Peony Red.  Small shop, but the people there are really nice, and good qipao.  Pearl River may be another choice, but I did not like the workers there as much.

    Wow.  Fortune cookies are TACKY? <img src="http://cdn.cl9.vanillaforums.com/downloaded/ver1.0/content/scripts/tinymce/plugins/emotions/images/smiley-surprised.gif" border="0" alt="Surprised" title="Surprised" />

    lol. I'm with NJerseyABC. I was thinking about doing chocolate-covered fortune cookies with custom fortunes inside.
