Designed by Yang Jie, the clothes incorporated the patterns, stitching features and dye techniques of the Miao and Dong ethnic groups living in Guizhou province, inspired by a recent trip of the design team to the province in Southwest China. And the colors present the changing hues of light and varying atmospheres associated with the several solar terms from early summer to early autumn.

Su Dan, deputy director of the Chinese Traditional Culture Museum, said before the show that costumes constitute an important part of the immensity of cultural heritage, and what people used to wear and what they wear now carry rich information about the relations between people and nature, and how people define their social roles; therefore the show was a celebration of history and culture and the creative spirit and wisdom arising from people's long-term interaction with the world.
