Inspired by the Italy-Viet Nam 2012 initiatives, a fashion show will be held on November 4 at Hanoi Daewoo Hotel.

There will be two collections on display, Mona Lisa and Timeline, designed by Hanoi-based Do Trinh Hoai Nam and Nguyen Cao Bang Tam.

The Mona Lisa collection was inspired by the masterpiece of Leonardo da Vinci, while the second draws a connection between the Italian Leaning Tower of Pisa and the Vietnamese One Pillar Pagoda.

The show is one of several fashion and food events organised by the Embassy of Italy in November.-VNA
