It was only after entering the Bird’s Nest that the new problem was found. The original white dress would turn yellow and dark under the blue light of the Bird’s Nest, so the design team changed it to pure white overnight.The blue in the down jacket of the flag bearer is also lightened in the later period, and the color is just right after lighting.”The costumes not only became a highlight of the opening ceremony, but also showed the full spirit of Chinese people in the new era through the stage.”Chen minzheng said.(Spring City of Heaven)
