What did the judges say?

Li Xin, winner of the China Costume Meritorious Award
“The overall level of competitors in this competition is very high, and the completeness and quality of creative proposals are also very high. Although it is only a month from planning to full promotion, the competition attracts nearly 400 professional designers from all over the world in a short period of time. It can be seen that the high-end positioning, precise docking and meticulous service of the competition meet the needs of the designers. In addition, it also shows the influence of China Textile City as the world’s largest textile business market. I believe that the showdown between the masters will make the final stage more exciting, and let all the finalists get more.”
As a senior expert in the industry and judges of many competitions, Li Xin said: “During the evaluation process, many works have well demonstrated the theme of “Fashion Transformation”, emphasizing the new orientation of textile “technology, fashion, green”.
Speaking about the next part of garment production, Li Xin said that she hoped that the finalists could find their own materials in the fashionable fabrics in China Textile City and make more perfect garments.

Professor Lv Yue, Doctoral Supervisor, the Founder of Fashion Design of the School of Design, CAFA
“This competition is different from other competitions in that the organizers use China Textile Magazine and CHINA TXETILE as the links and platforms of the competition, striving to bring more professional, more authoritative, higher specifications and more industrial value to the industry. Therefore, from the overall point of view, in the selection of competitors’ works, the judges are strict and earnest. We hope that the final players can keep improving in the production process and make the competition show extraordinary results. In addition, since the setting of the event has already been considered differently, I hope that the players’ works will be more stylized and personalized. After all, the designer who can build his own system is the most promising designer.

Zou You, Professor of Beijing Institute of Fashion Technology, Doctoral Supervisor, Committee member of the Board of Directors of China Fashion Association
“I have a few feelings through this review. First of all, there are more and more young designers engaged in fashion design, showing a strong vitality and adding more fresh blood to the Chinese garment industry. Secondly, this competition attracts players from different countries participated in the competition. From the entries, we can see that the design field is in a global integration. In addition, young designers must have their own unique design attitude, and the works must be recognizable. In the future, designers must have unique judgment and differentiate from the expression of others’ personality. This is the foundation that young designers must have in the future.”

Wu Jianming, Vice President of Zhejiang Baoding Design Co., Ltd.
“From the judging process of this competition, we can see that the competition is very international. Many of the participating designers are from abroad. The design works represent different design features and design languages. Overall, most of the entries collected in this competition are grasping the future development direction and matching the fashion trends, the participating designers have exerted their own imagination and designed a younger and more sporty trend.” Wu Jianming introduced that Baoding, as a design company, has signed more than 300 fashion designers and set up R&D centers in Shanghai, Hangzhou, Tokyo and Paris. It has strategic cooperation with many well-known designer alliances in China, Italy, France and other countries. The company also has deep strategic cooperation with many fabric enterprises in China Textile City. With the promotion of fashion in China Textile City, it will also provide more inspiration for the development of global fashion enterprises.

Xu Hong, President and Editor-in-Chief of China Textile Magazine

In the future, we will use China Textile Magazine, CHINA TXETILE as the link and platform of the event, the team strives to bring more professional, more authoritative, higher specification and more industrial value event finals to the industry, as well as to enable more global design resources to settle in Keqiao, helping Keqiao fabric is all over the world.”
