Inmates and police officers at the Jilin provincial women’s prison last week held a Spring Festival gala that included singing performances, belly dancing and a runway fashion show to celebrate the New Year holiday, East Asia Economy and Trade News reports.
The fashion show showcased items designed and modeled by inmates and police officers at the prison.
The prison trains inmates in clothing design and tailoring as to prepare them for their lives out of prison, and they regularly run design competitions like this one.
For last week’s show, nine police officers and 83 inmates spent around 20 days preparing the outfits seen on stage. Five inmates and five officers even won awards for their designs.
