Vietnamese Culture's Days, taking place from November 15 to 20, will feature local noted designer Thuan Viet with his four latest collections.
The ao dai collections, including Sen Viet (Vietnamese lotus,) Yem hoa (Floral brassiere,) Hon Viet (Soul of Vietnam,) and Ngoc Vien Dong (Oriental pearls,) depict the designer's creativity in combining the traditional beauty of ao dai with the charm of ao yem (brassiere) and ao tu than (Vietnamese four-panel traditional dress.)
The modern tailoring, colors and fabric, which give Thuan Viet's ao dai a firm foothold in the local fashion industry, will have the opportunity to shine at the cultural event.
Four top models and beauty queens -- Huong Giang, Thuy Dung, My Linh and Vu Hoang Diep -- will catwalk with the ao dai.
Along with fashion shows, Culture Days will feature music and dance shows on November 15, 17 and 19 in Ukraine's three cities Kiev, Kharkov and Odessa.
The event is co-organized by Vietnam's Ministry of Culture, Sport and Tourism and Ukraine's Ministry of Culture.
