The event aims at seeking recognition as national intangible heritage as well as UNESCO recognition for Ao Dai to be a piece of cultural heritage for all of humanity in the future.

According to the organising board, the Ao Dai Museum, since 2018 the museum has collected, displayed several exhibitions and workshops on “Ao Dai- cultural heritage”, helping to consolidate valuable materials for preserving and promoting values of the traditional dress.

Besides, exhibition goers had an opportunity to learn more about Vietnamese Cultural Heritages as well as valuable stories about Ao Dai.

Vietnam now has 13 intangible cultural heritages receiving global recognition, of which 7 heritages are related to Ao Dai.

At the present, only a few costumes on the world received UNESCO recognition as cultural heritage of humanity./.
