Costumes from the Southern Song Dynasty were restored with digital technology at the Huangyan Museum in Taizhou, Zhejiang Province. A digital human named Zhao Boshu from the Southern Song Dynasty was shown wearing a cross-hugging lotus flower patterned bright ground gauze robe and showing off a realistic appearance with a slightly leaning forward pose. This is one of the costumes restored by the digital fashion team of the Zhejiang Modern Textile Technology Innovation Center using virtual reality (VR) technology.

Due to the special nature of preservation of clothing cultural relics, the team was unable to observe and photograph these cultural relics from close range, and the only reference material was some photos of the cultural relics provided by the Huangyan Museum. The team had previously used digital media technology and 3D imaging technology to digitally restore the patterns, fabric structure, style and wearing state of the costume excavated from Zhao Boxu’s tomb. The team’s technicians then used 3D technology to restore the physical attributes of the costume by observing the fabric structure of the costume, highlighting the light, soft, thin and transparent characteristics of silk fabric. Using flexibility reproduction technology, the restored digital costume reproduces the realism of moving with the body like real fabric.
