Background and Purpose

On November 5, 2020, as China and Italy commemorated the 50th anniversary of the establishment of their diplomatic relations, Tsinghua University and Politecnico di Milano jointly launched the “China-Italy Year of Youth Innovation and Entrepreneurship”. It is designed to gather innovative talent from universities at home and abroad and people from all walks of life, enhance exchanges and cooperation on creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship between the youth of the two countries, and promote innovation in technology and policy solutions, in order to inject new vitality into the global sustainable development.

On April 19, 2021, when General Secretary Xi Jinping visited Tsinghua University to celebrate its 110th anniversary, he met faculty members and students at a symposium and delivered significant remarks. As Xi pointed out, “fine arts, arts, science, and technology complement and promote each other”, and “it is important to boost our cultural confidence, take beauty as the medium, and strengthen international cultural exchanges.” Therefore, the China-Italy Youth Future Fashion Design Competition was launched to lead the youth to follow his guidance. As one of the major activities of the “China-Italy Year of Youth Innovation and Entrepreneurship”, the competition encourages the fusion of arts and technology, takes beauty as the medium, builds up an international platform for fashion innovation, and explores the cutting-edge trends for leading the future fashion.
