The Vietnam Spring/Summer 2016 Fashion Week will take place from September 25-28 in Hanoi, bringing 900 new designs by 17 designers from Vietnam, Malaysia and Italy to the catwalk.

Speaking at a press conference on September 24, renowned designer Minh Hanh said that the event is being held as the world’s fashion industry begins to introduce new designs for next year’s spring and summer seasons.

In the first three “ready to wear” shows, designs that are relevant to domestic consumers will be introduced. Hanh’s collection uses hakata ori, a textile used in Japan’s Kimono, while the collection of Italy’s Chula is inspired by Vietnam’s silk fabric.

Haute Couture collections for fall and winter seasons will be brought to audiences on the closing night, September 28.-VNA
