An exhibition on Suzhou embroidery, which is known for its subtlety, brings to the fore its long history. Sun Yuanqing reports.

Recent fashion events in Beijing have given new meaning to intangible cultural heritage. The shows celebrating Chinese garments were held at Prince Gong's Mansion recently.

The events, supported by the department of intangible cultural heritage under the Ministry of Culture, were organized by the China National Garment Association, the Beijing Institute of Fashion Technology, the organizing committee of China Fashion Week and Minzu University of China.

The shows, held over June 5-10, included an exhibition on Suzhou embroidery, which dates back to more than 2,000 years and is known for its subtlety.

The exhibition showcased garments, paintings, and demonstrated the skills of the makers.

Three academic forums were held during the period-on Suzhou embroidery, traditional attire and traditional weaving and printing, respectively.

Six fashion shows were also held as fashion brands demonstrated how they were enlivening Chinese garment culture.
