The 30-minute show, themed Tracing, included three series: a travel series filled with bohemian chic, a collection of everyday wear highlighted with minimalism and simplicity, and formal dresses that fused Eastern and Western tastes.

From fabrics to pattern designs, the new creations were inspired by Chu's travel along the ancient Silk Road. Starting from Xi'an - one of China's ancient capitals widely known for the Terra Cotta Warriors, she traveled to countries including Nepal, India and Italy, and was impressed by the clothing styles in different cultures – no matter if it's Indian, Arabic or European. Then she used fabrics and patterns collected along the journey and blended them with the finest Chinese silk to present different temperament and charm of various cultures.
