"I am really satisfied with the contributions of the fashion designers, although with very difficult topics, the collections have depicted the beauty of Vietnamese heritage through the ao dai with experienced tactics in handling. Traditional silk and brocade materials combined with hand embroidery techniques and advanced printing technology. I feel that the designers are eager to protect the ao dai as their own country. All the stages for performing the Ao Dai will be famous relics. We choose places with historical marks of provinces and ao dai that appear as an indispensable part of daily life", said designer Minh Hanh.
