A work by Chinese designer Chen Jing, entitled "Yin and Yang", has won the 20th edition of International Competition for Designers and Fashion Enthusiasts "Off Fashion", held in Kielce, Poland.

According to organizers of the June 1-2 event, more than a hundred of designers qualified for the semifinals of the competition, and out of them, 20 entered the finals, including two students from the Beijing Institute of Fashion, of whom one is Chen Jing.

Chen Jing's work, "Yin and Yang", emerged as the winner, while Polish designers Adrian Krupa and Duet RAD ranked second and third, respectively. A number of additional prizes and awards have been given as well.

In an interview with Xinhua, Chen Jing said that this was her first time to participate in such competition abroad. "The results of the competition encouraged me to come up with better works," she added.

Liao Qing, deputy dean of the Beijing Institute of Fashion, said international design competitions provide students a platform to display their creative design and share experiences, adding that the institute hopes to use such competitions to promote traditional Chinese clothing culture and innovative designs.

The International Competition for Designers and Fashion Enthusiasts in Kielce was initiated in 2007. It focuses on young designers and aims to give them an opportunity to get a good business start.

Among the participants were both professionals and amateurs with a passion for tailoring and designing. The prize-winners are awarded scholarships and given the opportunity to present their collections on prestigious fashion shows.
