“Birds Adoring the Phoenix” skirt shines at New Year Party
The skirt with a length of 9m and a width of 8.5m was made by three students, Su Xiaotong, Gong Ziwei and Yu Ruyi, who spent two months on it. Under the guidance of teachers, they had changed the rough sketch five times till they finally got the final draft of design. Then, they went to Chaotianmen, bought back a piece of 80-metre-long white cloth and tailored it into clothes, and then painted and coloured it with several barrels of paint and finally tailored golden lines and pasted golden pieces on it.
After the model wearing the huge skirt leisurely walked out and 12 students respectively holding one corner of the skirt walked to the four corners of the stage and the entire skirt was fully presented on the stage, thunderous applause burst out from the audience. “There was such a great sense of achievement!” Su said.
