The event was attended by 500 international models and 28 designers from Vietnam, the US, Italy, Finland, the UK, Thailand, and the Philippines.
Love Collection displayed ao dai made from La Khê silk and other fine silk hand-woven by Vietnamese artisans, fans and conical hats hand-painted by Hue artisans, Zili coffee, a specialty of Lam Dong province’s Di Linh plateau, and Vietnamese bread.
The ao dai collection of 13-year-old designer Anna Hoang made an impression with iconic motifs and famous landmarks of Vietnam and the UK such as lotus flowers, Tudor roses, Hanoi, Hoi An, Hue, London, Tower Bridge, and Big Ben.
