Dur­ing the 2018 Show · Town China Grad­u­ate Fash­ion Week, the grad­u­ate show by Bei­jing Union Uni­ver­sity was held on May 15. This show was cen­tered around the theme “Bei­jing Charm”. The an­cient Chi­nese char­ac­ter mean­ing “charm” has har­mo­nious con­no­ta­tions. As a city with over one thou­sand years of his­tory, Bei­jing com­bines tra­di­tion with moder­nity, his­tory and tech­nol­ogy, and for­eign con­cepts and lo­cal cul­ture. There­fore, it was the per­fect ve­hi­cle to con­vey the mean­ing of charm in the mod­ern so­ci­ety.

The 70 cre­ations by 27 de­sign­ers rep­re­sented their un­der­stand­ings and ex­pres­sions of the theme “Bei­jing Charm”. The show be­came a plat­form for cre­at­ing as­pi­ra­tions, con­cepts, view­points and un­der­stand­ings of these young de­sign­ers, who them­selves em­body both tra­di­tion and moder­nity un­der the ex­cite­ment of in­no­va­tion.

The grad­u­ate cre­ations em­pha­sized the value of Bei­jing’s tra­di­tional cul­ture and ex­plored the in­te­gra­tion of tra­di­tional cul­ture with mod­ern prac­tices. Stu­dents found in­spi­ra­tion in Pek­ing Opera, si­heyuan (court­yard with houses on four sides), wind­mills and the lay­out of the city it­self, and made creative in­no­va­tions in terms of the form, fab­ric, struc­ture and tech­niques used to con­struct their gar­ments. This gave them the per­fect op­por­tu­nity to show­case their un­der­stand­ing of the tra­di­tional spirit of the city, as well as to em­pha­size their ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the crafts­man­ship and in­her­i­tance of tra­di­tional cul­ture.
