The Organising Committee of the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics and Paralympics has announced a shortlist of 10 finalists to design the Games' uniform.

It will commission the China Fashion Designers Association to organise and carry out a collection of visual appearance designs for the uniforms and equipment at the Games.

A total of 602 proposals were submitted and after an experts' initial evaluation, re-evaluation and public evaluation, the 10 were shortlisted.

Creators of the shortlisted designs come from the likes of the Shanghai University of Engineering Science, Tsinghua University and China's top sportswear maker, Anta.

The deal with the China Fashion Designers Association was signed by the Beijing Zhengyang Notary Office.
