More than 100 items from three Vietnamese designers will be displayed at the Chambord Palace in France on September 7 as part of the activities for the 2013-2014 France-Vietnam Year, which kicked off in April.

The 60 ensembles entitled "Phoenix flying to the sun" by designer Minh Hanh use Vietnamese traditional material such as silk, brocade and handmade lace.

Cong Khanh's designs are based on the architecture of Chambord while the collection of designer Trong Nguyen is based on the well-known paintings displayed at Chambord as well as the castle's murals.

"It is a pressure for us but also a great honor to introduce Vietnamese designs at a UNESCO World Heritage Site," said Hanh.

Chambord Palace is well-known for its distinct French Renaissance architecture.
