    A celebration of fashion, culture

    ANN/VIET NAM NEWS – Vietnamese designer Hoang Minh Ha opened the Aquafina Vietnam International Fashion Week (AVIFW) Fall/Winter 2022 in Ha Noi last Thursday night with a collection highlighting the cultural heritage of northern Vietnam.

    Ha’s collaborative collection with Aquafina called Suong (Mist) featured 40 designs in blue, red and black sustainable fabrics.

    The designer used a 3D pattern-making technique to create structured gowns which recreate images of terraced rice fields and mountain passes in northern mountainous areas, but still highlight the beauty of Vietnamese women.

    Ha, a graduate of the HCM City University of Architecture, became famous after becoming the winner of Project Runway Vietnam 2013, the Vietnamese version of the American TV reality series Project Runway.

    His collections have been presented at Tiffany’s Fashion Week Paris and Vietnam International Fashion Week.

    The opening show featured the collection Hen Em (See You) by designer Adrian Anh Tuan with designs for men and women, including evening gowns, suits, long coats, dresses and retro-styled Ao dai in vivid colours.

    Tuan, founder of fashion brand Valenciani, used sustainable fabrics made from oyster shells and bamboo for his collection.

    Handbags in leather and other accessories were also included.

    The event also saw the new collections of fashion brand Paul&Shark from Italy, and Det Nang Dong (Weaving Winter Sunshine) by Hanoi-based designer Duc Hung.
