“Fashion is language, the means of communicating without words meaningful cultural values.” Recognizing the cultural values of Áo Dài Festival, Đỗ Trịnh Hoài Nam has accepted our invitation to showcase his talent and has agreed to design a special Áo Dài for Mẹ Âu Cơ, the mythical first queen and mother of the nation. We do not expect a great design. We expect a spectacle!
