A unique fashion exhibit featuring the 22 latest designs of noted Italian designer Raffaella Curiel will go on display in Hanoi from November 24 to December 7.

The exhibition will highlight the eclectic socialism of Curiel's artistic creative resources and the creation of a rich collection using an unforgettable style.

Fashion was in the blood of Curiel from the time she was born near Trieste in 1943. Her mother Gigliola owned an atelier in her native city that was notorious among aristocrats of her time.

She was the first to take the Italian ready-to-wear fashion to the United States with "Curiellino", a casual dress that women could wear all day long.

The Italian Embassy in Vietnam is organising the exhibit, which will coincide with the Vietnam visit of Italian Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs and International Co-operation Benedetto Della Vedova.

The display will run at Casa Italy, 18 Le Phung Hieu street.-VNA
