Ho Chi Minh City to host Vietnam's first international FW
Nov '14
Ho Chi Minh City, erstwhile Saigon, is prepping up to play the host of the upcoming inaugural edition of Vietnam International Fashion Week, slated to take place from December 1st to 6th, 2014.

More than eight acclaimed designers from across the world alongside nine leading Vietnamese names will feature their exquisite couture pieces at the event, which will be co-hosted by FIDe Fashion Weeks and Multimedia Joint Stock Company, and will be supported by the Asian Couture Federation (ACF) and French fashion school Atelier Chardon Savard.

The foreign line up includes couturiers representing prestigious globally recognized institutions and organizations like La Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture (France), AltaRoma (Italy) and the ACF.

Designers like the Paris-based duo Livia Stoianova and Yassen Samouilov, as well as the Roman talent Antonio Grimaldi will make their Vietnamese runway debut through the event along with the remaining five ACF members including Korean menswear label Zio Song, Frederick Lee (Singapore), Tamae Hirokawa of Japanese brand SOMARTA, Roj Singhakul from ISSUE (Thailand) and Tsolmandakh Munkhuu (Tsolo Munkh) from Mongolia.

While commenting on the international line up, the Founding President of the ACF and Chairman of FIDé Fashion Weeks, Dr. Frank Cintamani, says, “The Vietnam International Fashion Week heralds a key milestone in Vietnam’s fashion history. The presence of so many international designers alongside those from Vietnam is particularly exciting, it is also an excellent opportunity to encourage and recognise designers who are not afraid to be experimental in their creations, to push their own boundaries amongst other talented avant-garde designers.”

“Likewise, I am delighted that so many of the international designers are from the Asia Couture Federation, fulfilling our long held desire to expose these unique creative talents to new markets and opportunities,” he adds.

In addition to the foreign names, local home-grwon labels like Nguyen Cong Tri (also an ACF member), Adrian Anh Tuan, Chung Thanh Phong, Hoang Hai, Hoang Minh Ha, Le Thanh Hoa, Vo Thi Li Lam, Ly Giam Tien and Thanh Nga.

Le Thi Quynh Trang, the Founder of Multimedia JSC, spoke about the local participants, “The Vietnam International Fashion Week will be a unique showcase of the exceptional design talent that exists in Vietnam. The increasing recognition of the artistry and workmanship of our designers will be brought to new heights by placing them on a truly international platform.”

Marking a key development in Vietnam’s fashion landscape, the Vietnam International Fashion Week will bring together on one runway some of the very best designers, renowned for their cutting edge, avant-garde and progressive creations, from around the globe. (PB)
