“Chinese Culture Talk” unfolds a long, beautiful picture scroll of the development history of Chinese clothing, with a focus on the emergence of contemporary fashion designs. Some of the designs derive inspiration from Tang-dynasty costumes of figurines of the Tang Dynasty (618-907) unearthed in Xi’an along the Silk Road, murals in Mogao Grottoes in Dunhuang, and Astana Ancient Tombs in Xinjiang, etc.; the typical Tang-dynasty clothing elements are extracted and sorted out therefrom to create the latest series of clothing, which not only reproduces the crystallization of cultural and artistic exchanges along the Silk Road one thousand years ago, but also presents the innovation power of China’s fashion design today, thereby most vividly telling Chinese stories, displaying the great beauty of Chinese clothing, and conversing with the world civilizations through clothing, a medium that is closest to life. Through costume culture blending and communication, the lecture aims to promote cultural exchanges with other nations, enhance mutual understanding, and deepen traditional friendships. With clothing as an important carrier, “Chinese Culture Talk” 2019 is a showcase for China’s thousands of years of splendid culture to the world, as well as contemporary China’s integrated, open and inclusive innovation power and traditional cultural aesthetics.
