Tsinghua University professor and former chairman of China Fashion Designer Association Li Dangqi was appointed chairman of the jury. He commented, "China's fashion design industry needs young and rising new stars to support it. China's excellent traditional culture and workmanship needs the youth to inherit it and carry it forward. I wish more and more designers would commit themselves to inheriting the workmanship, innovating in the process of inheriting and progressing in the process of innovating, in order to boost the development of culture and workmanship, showcase the characteristics of Chinese culture, and play a positive role in pushing China's textile and garment industry to go global."
The ingenuity of the "Tutor PK Contest" toppled traditional forms of contest that were practiced in China's past fashion design contests. Three gold prize winners Wang Yutao, Li Xiaoyan and Wu Xukai were appointed tutors of the event, each leading a team of designers to compete in the contest. This was the most classic and creative shining point of this fashion tournament.
An authoritative official concluded that China will take advantage of this event to create a designer-centered fashion design ecosphere in Shengze the first silk town of China, and will set up a platform for rising star designers to develop their career and present their innovations. He wished that fashion design schools and garment enterprises in Shengze would cooperate and exchange opinions and experience to produce more top designers and boost the transformation and upgrade of China's textile and apparel industry.
