Several types of military uniforms were displayed at the rehearsal on Sunday of the military parade which will commemorate the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II in Beijing on Sept 3.

Thirty professionals in General Logistics Department have been assigned to design all clothing models for parade this year, inspired by the uniforms in the War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression and the latest version of military uniforms issued in 2007.

The military uniforms during the rehearsal included clothing for guard of honor, uniforms in the War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression, female dress clothing and different camouflage clothing.

"It will be the most beautiful uniforms in all the parades China has," said Ma Guowang, team leader of a medical formation in parade.

All the uniforms have been upgraded with better fabrics, highlighted accessories and hard but smooth styles.

Military boots have been improved to be light, more fit and with better ventilation, which makes them perfect for the parade, according to a formation leader.

Compared to previous loose sized uniforms, the parade uniforms have been tailored according each member's measurements. The waist size has been especially narrowed for the female to have a better fit.

China's female guards of honor will for the first time attend a military parade.
