China fashion brand Eve Cina released its 2018 spring/summer collection recently in Beijing. The company is engaged in promoting embroidery.

The new collection features needle work done by craftswomen from the Miao ethnic tribes from Southwest China's Guizhou province. Some of the women also displayed their work on the runway.

The inspiration for the collection also came from Chinese brush paintings and stamps.

Xia Hua, founder of the company and chief designer said that the idea of the show was a nostalgic trip to show life in the old days when people still wrote letters and worked with their hands.
