As a professional manager, Chen Li would absolutely not allow such a thing to happen, so she decided to persuade Qiao Xi nicely. Unexpectedly, Qiao Xi completely ignored her.
Seeing that Qiao Xi was looking down on everyone, Chen Li was instantly infuriated. “Miss Qiao, you should have already looked for the production team, right? They know that your design was stolen, but does anyone care? They’ll only let you continue participating in the show as if nothing happened. You’re just a small-time designer. What right do you have to compete with our Xia Tong? Our Xia Tong has a backer. You can’t afford to offend her!
“I won’t make things difficult for you. As long as you change your design, we can give you a sum of money. Just take it as though we bought your design. Moreover, I can get Xia Tong to recommend your clothes. This is killing two birds with one stone. You have no reason to refuse!
“Even if your design is good, you can only make it with defective materials. As long as you agree to change the design, I’ll prepare new materials for you. I guarantee that they’ll all be high-quality fabrics. If you need anything, feel free to tell me. I’ll definitely—”
“You’re very noisy.” Qiao Xi interrupted Chen Li coldly, her eyes filled with impatience.
Chen Li instantly choked, and her expression gradually turned ugly. “You little girl, you actually dare to speak to me like this? I’ve said all the good things I could, but you didn’t listen to a single word. You’re so young, but you have such a bad temper!”
Qiao Xi pointed coldly at the door. “Miss Chen, please leave.”
“Say that again?” Chen Li glared at her.
“Scram!” Qiao Xi’s thin lips parted slightly as she coldly spat out.
Chen Li was so angry that her eyes almost popped out. Previously, when she saw Qiao Xi’s design, she thought that this designer was quite capable and wanted to rope her in to be Xia Tong’s substitute. She did not expect this young lady to be so stubborn and not give her any face at all.
Since she was unwilling, there was no need to force her. After all, there were so many designers, so there was no need to insist on recruiting her.
Chen Li’s face was filled with disdain as she snorted. “Don’t think that just because you say that the design is yours, people will believe you. You’re just a new designer, yet your work is exactly the same as Xia Tong’s. It’s obvious who was the one who plagiarized. The audience won’t believe you either. At that time, your reputation will be ruined. I gave you a chance today, but you didn’t cherish it. You’ll regret it one day!”
As soon as she finished speaking, Chen Li left angrily. The moment she turned around, a person suddenly appeared in her mind. This small-time designer looked a little similar to the chief of Liuli, but why would that big shot participate in such a show? Even if she really came, she would definitely be a judge.
Gu Shan was a pearl in the fashion design industry and the idol of many designers. However, she had always been low-profile and rarely showed her face. Chen Li had only seen her once from afar during a fashion show.
Qiao Xi was expressionless as her fingers gently stroked the dress she had designed. Even though it was made of rough fabric, it was unable to conceal its elegance.
Regret? It was still uncertain who would regret it! Was stealing someone else’s things justified these days?
On the other hand, Shen Yu believed that Qiao Xi could solve this small problem, so he was no longer worried. He stared at the stage. He wanted to see who stole Little Six’s design draft.
The show officially started recording. The first to appear was a singer who had debuted in a talent show. She had previously learned design. As soon as she appeared, the audience below the stage cheered excitedly. However, Shen Yu’s expression remained indifferent as if nothing could arouse his interest.
In Shen Yu’s eyes, the works of these celebrities could only be considered average. There was nothing outstanding about them. Those fans liked them because they had the aura of celebrities. When everyone saw Qiao Xi’s work, they would know how dull these celebrities’ works were.
The last person was Xia Tong. After her work was displayed on stage, the entire venue fell silent.
This… was too perfect!
The design of the gown matched the theme. The color was gorgeous but not tacky. It made everyone dumbfounded. Even the judges were stunned. They could not believe that this gown was designed by an amateur.
Shen Yu’s entire body exuded a chill, and a trace of disgust flashed past his eyes. Shen Yu, who was known for his gentleness, actually revealed such an expression. The judges at the side sensed that something was wrong.
It was just that the show was being recorded, so everyone could only pretend not to see it. The host invited all the contestants on stage. “The works of the five contestants have been displayed. They all have their own merits. It’s truly an eye-opener!”
