Images of the city on the Saigon River were reflected vividly through a collection themed “Ngoc Vien Dong” (The Far East Pearl) by designer Do Trinh Hoai Nam at the opening ceremony of the 9th Ho Chi Minh City Ao Dai Festival.

The combination of the Ao Dai Collection themed “The gioi nhu toi thay” (The world as I see it) by Do Trinh Hoai Nam and the traditional costumes of many countries around the world expresses the festival’s spirit of peace and friendship.

This is a collection designed specifically for this year’s Ho Chi Minh City Ao Dai Festival, aiming to promote tourism on the Saigon River to people in the country and international friends.

The collection was inspired by the shimmering, modern, and majestic image of the city by the Saigon River and the image of the lotus flower, which represents the tradition of Saigon.
The collection was made with sophisticated hand-embroidered techniques by hundreds of artisans from traditional embroidery villages in Thuong Tin District, Hanoi.
The velvet and silk designs were hand-woven and embroidered in mosaic style, creating a luxurious impression. The combination between modern and traditional techniques resulted in modern and elegant designs imbued with traditional culture.
