More than eighteen Vietnamese and international designers are going to present their latest Autumn/Winter 2013 collections at the bi-annual event Vietnam Fashion Week, scheduled to take place in the country’s capital city of Hanoi.
Beginning April 19, 2013, the three-day-long event will feature a traditional hand-knit collection from the leading local talent Vu Viet Ha. Drawing inspiration from the images of northern mountainous region people, the designer has created ensembles with materials like wool, denim and silk.
Veteran fashion designer Trong Nguyen is going to showcase an innovative line using the three-dimensional cutting technology. The minimalistic styled distinctive range will include rose motifs symbolising feminine beauty. The designer is also mentoring the six young designers from the Viet Thang brand, who will showcase their collection on the opening day of the event.
Hanoi-based Chula brand, by Spanish designer Diego Cortiza, will feature its latest 30-piece collection titled Music at the event. Based on the two basic tones of black and white, the ensembles are made of taffeta, khaki, velvet, denim and wool. Combining symbols of Vietnamese and Spanish music like flamenco and catru (ceremonial singing), the garments will include graphic designs of different musical instruments.
The major highlight of the event will be a special collection from the famous French design talent Francoise Hoffmann, a designer at the famous French fashion house Lanvin. The Lyon-based innovative designer will present an extraordinary silk and sheep fur based collection made using a technique that does not require any stitches.
