The Vietnam Spring Summer Fashion Week 2020 starting on September 13 will present the latest collections by leading designers of the country.
Natural materials are in vogue this year, with the aim of bringing convenience in spring/summer when the weather is getting hotter due to climate change, according to designer Minh Hanh, founder of the event.
The fashion week will be held at Dien Hong Garden (formerly Chavassieux Square) in Hanoi’s Hoan Kiem district.
“In recent years, we have held the fashion week at public venues to eliminate the border between fashion catwalks and life; it’s good to bring fashion closer to the people,” said Hanh.
The three-day event will feature 750 outfits by GenViet Jeans and 14 designers. They show different inspirations and themes, but all focus on the spring/summer season.
Trinh Thanh Hai, owner of GenViet Jeans brand, said fashion should follow trends, but never separate itself from local culture, which is part of the message of her collection 'Where I Am Living'.
Young designer Nhi Hoang has experimented with traditional silk, using material from Nha Xa village (Ha Nam province) and Bao Loc city in the Central Highlands province of Lam Dong.
Spanish designer Diego Cortizas, owner of Chula brand, has participated in the fashion week for 10 years. This year he's using linen from northern Sa Pa town and silk from central Da Nang city.
“I have many years working in the field of fashion in Vietnam. I want to preserve the identity and tradition of Vietnam but still tend to modernity in the designs,” he said./.
