Promoting the beauty of Vietnamese traditional costume

The 2024 Hue Community Ao Dai (long dress) Week was organized from June 24-30 in the central province of Thua Thien-Hue. The event aimed to preserve and promote the beauty of the Vietnamese traditional costume.

The program included a wide range of activities, such as a fine art exhibition and space for experiencing, displaying the tailoring skills of artisans from the three regions of Vietnam.

They also included a pilgrimage to the tomb of Lord Nguyen Phuc Khoat, who "gave birth" to ‘ao dai’, the introduction of a book on five-flap ‘ao dai’, a seminar on the traditional costume, an ‘ao dai’ design and performance contest featuring 12 Zodiac motifs on postage stamps, and a cycling for the environment.

Response activities are expected to be implemented in agencies, units and schools across the province./.
