he grad­u­ate cre­ation show by the Changzhou Tex­tile Gar­ment In­sti­tute was held dur­ing the 2018 Show Town China Grad­u­ate Fash­ion Week on May 15. The show had the theme “se­cret gar­den” and in­cluded three sec­tions: nat­u­ral gar­den, op­ti­cal sky and mys­ti­cal gar­den. The nat­u­ral gar­den sec­tion com­bined nat­u­ral el­e­ments with ap­parel de­sign and em­pha­sized the con­nec­tions be­tween tra­di­tion and fash­ion. The op­ti­cal sky sec­tion de­scribed the con­flicts be­tween mod­ern art and the time and pace of sci­ence fic­tion, in or­der to show­case a his­tor­i­cal cross-sec­tion of cul­tural art. The mys­ti­cal gar­den sec­tion made ad­van­tage of Chi­nese tra­di­tional em­broi­dery tech­niques to cre­ate mys­ti­cal charm in an an­cient way, and to con­vey in­no­va­tive at­ti­tudes to­wards fash­ion de­sign.

The grad­u­ate cre­ations used dur­ing the show dis­played the stu­dents’ con­cepts about fash­ion de­sign and mar­ket trends af­ter sur­vey­ing the mar­ket. The cre­ations in­cluded sev­eral se­ries, in­clud­ing “Parisian Sum­mer”, “For­est Win­dow”, “Cling­ing to Tra­di­tion”, and “Reclu­sive World”, and ex­plored the con­nec­tions be­tween fash­ion and art, es­thet­ics, his­tory, lit­er­a­ture and re­li­gion. The cre­ations also made use of var­i­ous tech­niques, such as em­broi­dery, weav­ing, and col­lage, in the mak­ing of the fabrics, and ex­plored the best ways in which to com­bine these tech­niques with mod­ern color match­ing. The pur­pose se of this was to cre­ate a se­cret gar­den that tran­scends na­ture to en­com­pass fic­tion and to then em­brace mbrace the soul of au­di­ence.
