HCM City (VNA) - More than 200 garments for boys and girls created by foreign and local fashion houses and garment companies will be showcased at the first Vietnam Junior Fashion Week to be held in HCM City from September 22 to 25.

They will be mostly ready-to-wear clothes made of high-quality materials and offered at reasonable prices.

Talented designers like Kelly Bui and Do Manh Cuong will first present collections.

Nearly 70 amateur models aged four to 12 will wear the clothes at the event.

“The VJFW is … also a place to connect Vietnamese brand names and designers and customers,” said Xuan Lan, a model and member of the event organising board.

“The event will also offer participants the opportunity to promote their brand names and sales.”

The process of choosing the models began last weekend.

“We hope both children and parents will be entertained by our show,” Lan added.

VJFW is organised by a group of fashion designers and stylists who want to encourage Vietnamese fashion houses, companies and designers to develop a children’s line of clothing.-VNA
