Nanjing brocade fashion show

As an age-old silk handicraft, Nanjing Yunjin brocade represents the highest achievement in silk weaving in China. The technique was once used to produce royal garments such as the dragon robe and crown costume. Today, it is still used to make high-end attire and keepsakes. In 2009, Nanjing Yunjin brocade was listed on UNESCO's representative list of the intangible cultural heritage of humanity

Inheritors and designers in Nanjing never stop innovating their brocade techniques while passing down the art. They fuse tradition with fashion, aiming to explore modern expressions of the classic techniques.

Let's enjoy a feast for the eyes in this Yunjin fashion show to see how the ancient art adds glamour to fashion.

Watch LIVE: 6 pm, May 19 (GMT+8)
