The performance of ao dai (long dress) and display of special Vietnamese products, such as silk, handicrafts and souvenirs, have left a deep impression on visitors at Flavours of Asia festival which was recently held at the headquarters of the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) in Geneva, Switzerland.

It was jointly organised by the Ambassadors’ Spouses Association in Geneva in coordination with the Delegation of Asian countries.

The cultural diversity and richness of the Asian region have been vividly and colorfully reflected at the festival through performances of their national costumes, music and arts, and introduction of garment products, souvenirs and cusine.

The Vietnamese delegation in Geneva brought to the festival typical silk and fine art products such as embroidery and lacquer paintings and souvenirs including bronze drums, paper fans, and lanterns as well as the performance of ao dai.

 

It is noteworthy that the festival was held on the occasion of Vietnamese Women’s Day which falls on October 20 so it has become an opportunity for promoting Vietnam’s culture and people to international friends.

According to the organisers, nearly 1,000 people took part in the festival. All proceeds from the sale of tickets and products will be donated to the Afghanistan Charity Foundation to support the country's women and children.
