Under the guidance of China National Textile and Apparel Council, co-hosted by the Xinhua News Agency, Xinhuanet and Textile Apparel Weekly Magazine, the competition will run until October and include nationwide and overseas tours in November for outstanding works. To attract broad participation, the competition is divided into amateur and professional designers groups.

Under the guidance of three mentors, the top 24 finalists will have their designs modeled at a live competition, the winner of which will receive RMB 150,000 ($23,100).

The 24 finalists' works will also tour major cities including Suzhou, Shanghai, Beijing, Hong Kong and Paris.

Silk textile is a considerable element in advancing the development policy of "One Belt and One Road". This competition will collect works with the theme of "Inheritance and Craftsmanship" from both domestic and overseas fields.

"China's global influence keeps growing during the recent years, we should carry forward Chinese costume and fashion culture at the moment. Inheritance means more than imitation and reproduction, but creation. I believe this competition will play an important role in the future clothing business, especially for the current industry supply-side structural reform," Mr. Li Dangqi, Chairman of Chinese Fashion Designers Association said.
