France to showcase its woven products in Vietnam
Apr '13
For the very first time, France would hold a special garment and textile international exhibition in Vietnam during the Hue Traditional Craft Festival going to be held from April 27 to May 1, the French Embassy in Hanoi has announced.
As a valued guest to the festival aimed at promoting development of craft villages and tourism services, France would showcase its woven products at the expo, vov.vn reported quoting Etienne de Gonneville, First Counsellor of the French Embassy.
Recognized as one of the major events to characterize 2013 as friendship exchange year between Vietnam and France, the expo follows the same model as for the unique international textile expo held in Clermont Ferrand, France, where Minh Hanh, a designer from Vietnam featured her collection.
The Counsellor said France would present its distinctive quality apparels produced using new weaving technology to the Vietnamese buyers, at the exhibition.
The five-day festival would host several fashion shows showcasing collections of designers including France’s Francoise Hoffmann, Philippines’ Patis Tesoro, Vietnam’s Cong Khanh and Minh Hanh and also designers from Hong Kong.
Moreover, the festival would also host other activities such as an exhibition on Vietnam’s craft villages, a seminar on traditional craft villages and tourism and a Metamorphoses exhibition featuring 80 French woven items, according to Thua Thien-Hue provincial People’s Committee Vice Chairman Nguyen Dang Thanh.
