More than 600 ao dai (Vietnamese traditional costume) by 15 local designers were showcased on Friday night at the Temple of Literature in Hanoi as part of a series of activities titled “Our Ao Dai” within the framework of a campaign to honor the heritage as well as the beauty of Vietnamese women. 

The campaign was organized by the Vietnam Women's Union (VWU) Central Committee.

Inspite of a rain, Friday night’s show with more than 400 perfomers attracted large attention.

The 600 designs in the show’s 15 collections, themed ‘The World in Vietnamese Ao Dai,’ were made from Vietnamese traditional materials such as silk and ramie, featuring scenery and cultural features of 15 different countries in the world.

“These are just the first 15 out of 100 collections inspired by the cultural identities of 100 countries that Vietnamese and international designers will come up with this year, to convey the idea that the Vietnamese ao dai is extremely adaptable, even to very different cultures, and that ao dai is not only loved domestically but also can spread globally,” said designer Minh Hanh, director of Friday night’s event.

The stage was also decorated with green ramie pots and white silkworm cocoons to match the collections’ materials.

Belows are the ao dai designs showcased in Friday night’s show:
