Through the accumulation of thousands of years, Chinese culture has condensed into a broad and profound culture and vigorous art. Nowadays, in the process of collision and blending with the foreign culture, the foreign culture has continuously inspired and enriched the Chinese aesthetic taste, and then developed the Chinese culture. At the same time, it also promoted the development of traditional apparel art. With the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation, Chinese style, design and elements have once again become the pursuit and trend of public aesthetics. National expression did not only mean the simple reproduction of traditional culture and the elements of expression. Under the fusion of Chinese and Western civilization, the Chinese character was presented to the world by means of pluralism, inclusiveness and innovation. It created and opened up a new era of their own cultural pattern with the clothing needle and pin. It was not only the responsibility of the designer but also the challenge and opportunity of the fashion trendsetters to create and exploit the cultural pattern of the new era.
