Dang Thi Minh Hanh, the senior fashion designer from Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, will be introducing her exotic line of more than fifty brocade dresses at the international garment and textile festival of the ‘Les Métamorphoses' exhibition in France.
The fabric used in the designer’s brocade-based apparel collection is hand woven by a group of ethnic minority people ‘H’Mong’ belonging to Ha Giang province and Bac Ha district (Lao Cai province) in Vietnam.
The talented designer’s bright and beautiful apparel line portrays a spectacular blend of regal hues, such as rich green, royal blue, classic black and soothing pastels.
Born in 1961, the Vietnamese fashion designer specialises in hybridising traditional designs with modern clothing and is currently the Director at the Vietnam Fashion Design Institute (FADIN).
The textile festival themed ‘Mutation’, to be held form September 12 to 16, 2012, is being organized jointly by the French Culture and Media Industry and UNESCO. At the event, various international designers will showcase their vivid creations, such as scarves made from spider’s threads as well as clothes made with gold strings and bamboo fibres.
