  Abstract

“Nv Gong”, also called embroidery, is one of traditional ethnic handicrafts of Chinese nation. It is made by stitching on the fabric in the light of the pattern designed and constituting some patterns or script. It is thereby called as “Nv Gong” because the embroidery is mostly made by women. The correct pronunciation of “Hong” in “Nv Hong” is “Gong”. The technique of “Nv Gong” (embroidery) is inherited from mother to daughter or mother-in-law to daughter-in-law, thus it is also called as “technique of mother”. The traditional “Nv Gong” (embroidery) plays a significant role in modern costume, and it injects cultural implication and vitality into the fashion. It not only stresses the blend of traditional culture and modern culture, but also emphasizes the concept of “only national technology can become popular in the world”. It both is a requirement for the appreciation of the beauty in modern costume, and shows the necessity of inheritance and promotion of traditional costume culture.
