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.
