Through ao dai and evening gowns, "Essence of the Ancient Capital" honors the beauty of Vietnamese nature and culture, especially the ancient capital of Hoa Lu - Ninh Binh. The show brings new experiences to both the models participating in the show and the audience: The catwalk is a stone bridge connecting two stupas, surrounded by Ky Lan Lake, and above is Ky Lan Son Tu. The organizing committee also arranged 100 boats to serve audiences who want to experience lake cruises and watch performances at close range to the stage.

Besides, the show "Essence of the Ancient Capital" also has a unique combination of music through the performances of famous singers. In particular, designer Thach Linh, who won second prize in Sao Mai Hai Duong in 2015, performed the song "Vietnamese Pride" to open the show with the collaboration of the Sepheria Dance Company and the appearance of Miss Universe.
"The Essence of the Ancient Capital" is a large-scale fashion show, that gathers talented young designers and many of the most famous beauty queens, models, and celebrities in Ninh Binh. The show lasted until midnight, but thousands of Ninh Binh audiences and tourists from all over Vietnam were still excited to enjoy it until the last moments.

The first collection introduced in a special fashion night at Hoa Lu Ancient Town was titled the show "Essence of the Ancient Capital" by designer Thach Linh. The collection is inspired by places and specialties of Ninh Binh such as Trang An, Hoa Lu ancient capital, Kim Son wine, Ninh Binh mountain goats, and others. "Bringing Ninh Binh into the ao dai" - is what designer Thach Linh conveys to realize her wishes to promote the culture and tourism of her homeland Ninh Binh through the lens of fashion. Thach Linh also donated to Ninh Binh the ao dai that Miss Bao Ngoc performed with the desire to promote culture and tourism in the ancient capital.
Designer Thach Linh also introduced two of her collections, "Luminara" and "Leaving the Mist". The special thing about "Leaving the Mist" is that the collection originates from trips to the Northwest looking for inspiration for brocade costumes.

The collection includes two highland young girls, 13-year-old Ho Thi Khanh Huyen from the Pa Co ethnic group in Pire village, A Bung commune, Dakrong district, Quang Tri, and 10-year-old Ksor Kim Anh, from the Pa Co ethnic group, Song Hinh district, Phu Yen. The two girls' families are both very poor, but they both have dreams of being models. Thach Linh sponsored all accommodation and travel expenses so that the two could walk on the show's professional stage.
Together with Thach Linh, the participation of southern designers has contributed to honoring cultural heritage and promoting tourism in many regions of the country.
