Ao Dai Grand Show

09 & 11/4, 20:00, Quoc Hoc Stele

In 2012, Ao Dai Grand Show will continue to honor the elegance of Vietnam image with the theme “Lotus in painting”.

The beauty of the lotus has been embedded in our perception and become an endless inspiration for art, architecture, sculpture and painting. Wherever you are in Hue, you can easily find symbolic traces of lotus flowers left over the years. The Vietnamese Ao Dai adorned by lotus patterns will certainly bring invaluable spiritual values, expressing the aesthetic eternity of such sacred flower as well as the traditional dress in the soul of Vietnamese people.

In the summer breeze from the Perfume River and the sounds of zither, two-stringed violin, monochord and flute played by the group Cỏ Lạ, a collection of 300 Ao dai will gracefully fly as a continued effort of creation to preserve the national precious asset and pass it onto future generations.

Designers involved in the show include Xuan Hao, Quang Tan, Viet Bao from Hue; Thuong Huyen, Duc Hai, Viet Ha, Quang Huy, Long, Ngoc Han from Hanoi; Hong Vuong, Van Khoa, Bich Vietnam's Ha Thang Garment Company, Tuan Huy Quynh Paris, Cong Khanh, Si Hoang and Minh Hanh from Ho Chi Minh City.

The show will gather 150 models from New Talent Company - Hanoi, Hue and Model World Company-Ho Chi Minh City together with Miss Vietnam 2006 Mai Phuong Thuy, Miss Vietnam 2008 Tran Thi Thuy Dung and Miss Vietnam 2010 Dang Thi Ngoc Han.
