The report of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC) pointed out that socialism with Chinese characteristics has entered a new era, and the principal contradiction in society is "the contradiction between the growing needs of the people for a better life and the unbalanced and inadequate development." The development of Beijing Institute of Fashion Technology has always been closely related to social reform since it was established 60 years ago, from taking the responsibility to solve the problem with the people’s clothing to meet the  "growing needs of the people for a better life", and has completed the design of costumes with special requirements of the relevant industries for many times, such as undertaking the design and production of costumes for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games and the Paralympic Games, and for the millitary parade of the 60th anniversary of the founding of the PRC, the design of Shenzhou series manned space suits and cabin boots, and participating the design and production work in the 2014 Nanjing Youth Olympic Games, the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, the seventh World Military Games and 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympic Games "Beijing 8 minutes" performance costumes. Among which,the design and production work of the 2014 APEC conference leaders’ suits which was presided by BIFT, was widely praised by all walks of life.

This time, the designers from BIFT have once again well fulfilled the task of costume design for the 70th anniversary of the People’s Republic of China, echoing the theme with Chinese craftsmanship and typical symbols. The designers of BIFT are not only "decoders" but also "transmitters". They are not only designing and making costumes, but also combining their understanding of Chinese culture with their own aesthetic judgment. Taking costumes as the medium and Changan Street as the scroll, they perfectly present the theme of "jointly fulfilling the Chinese Dream ", showing the positive spiritual style of the Chinese people to the world and the infinite vitality of China in the new era, and demonstrating the firm confidence of the Chinese people to achieve the Chinese Dream of our national rejuvenation.
