Images showcasing world heritage sites featured on traditional Ao Dai
Talented local designer Nhat Dung has decorated a variety of Ao Dai with famous world heritage sites in a bid to promote Vietnamese culture to international friends during a cultural exchange that took place in HCM City.
A recently held cultural exchange between the United States and Vietnam in Ho Chi Minh City provided designer Nhat Dung a platform to introduce his latest Ao Dai collection.
Each Ao Dai featured a well-known world heritage site, such as the tulip flower gardens of the Netherlands and Notre Dame cathedral in Paris.
The outstanding fashion collection allows a variety of people, landscapes, and cultures to be promoted.
Designer Nhat Dung notes his delight and pride at having the opportunity to present Vietnamese culture to international friends.
The Ao Dai (traditional long dress) Show, a traditional Vietnamese art and cultural performance, has been launched in the central city for local and foreign tourists after a successful four-year stint in Hue.
Many Vietnamese designers have expressed outrage as a Chinese newspaper describes Vietnam’s ao dai as a “Chinese style”.
