When talking about the biggest change in the Chinese people's clothing in the 40 years of reform and opening up, Yang Jie thinks that this is actually a great satisfaction, or a change of pleasure, in each of us. "We have really felt the tremendous changes brought about by the reform and opening up and the changes in the quality of life from a time of material scarcity. In particular, the style, crafts and materials of clothing have become more and more demanding in different environments. The more subdivided, the more exquisite and rich, the room for choice becomes more and more. Clothing is no longer a basic object, it becomes a way to beautify life, to enjoy life, can be more Good to experience the things of life. So in fact, these 40 years is a leap. I feel that the feelings inside can be the most important point in the change of mass clothing, and the original intention and the greatest feeling of planning this exhibition."

Clothing is related to the people of the world, the cohesion of ethnic groups and the continuity of the context. The rejuvenation of China requires cultural identity, cultural self-confidence and cultural cohesion.
