Ms. Xinyan You made a project closing report on the project named “Creative Garment Display for Students from Three Countries of China, Sri Lanka and India”, one of the folk diplomacy projects and also known as “Nations and the World” International Fashion Creative Training Camp sponsored by the Department of Garment and Apparel Design, School of Art Design and Media under SORSA Sanda University Branch.

The project activity was conducted at Changshou Road, Department of Garment and Apparel Design, in July 2019, with the duration of one week. In the process of the project, the people from the three countries not only conducted in-depth exchanges but also allowed college students to show their vigorous creativity through the workshop, combining the traditional culture and technology of their respective countries with fashion, making in-depth innovation and presenting a new look to the public. The design works are finally shown to the public in the form of a design product exhibition, which has attracted many Chinese and foreign guests and industry professionals.

This folk diplomacy activity has been highly valued by SORSA.
