The aodai “hoi trung duong” holds the spirit of Vietnam

Ao Dai represents for the beauty of Vietnam woman. Many well-known fashion designer in Vietnam was inspired by the beauty of traditional ” ao dai ” dress.  The aodai ” hoi trung duong”   is a wonderful design of  the designer  Vo Viet Chung which symbolise  for ” the image of Vietnamese women in the art of flower embroidering and brocading that passes on tradition from one generation to another”, and “It holds the spirit of the nation”.

In December  5 , 2010 the Vo Viet Chung introduced the collection of ao dai of women in the central, the northern and southern Vietnam, the collection of ao dai for Miss Universe 2008 pageant in Vietnam and the collection of modern ao dai named “Colors of Soil”.However, the highlight of this show was a unique ao dai, recognized as a national record, worn by Miss Vietnam 2006 Mai Phuong Thuy.

In 2007 the ‘Hoi trung duong’ aodai project, by designer Vo Viet Chung, was anticipated to be completed within 6 months, but it is only two years later that the final seams of the huge aodai were finished, only three months before the big Millennium Thang Long Hanoi festival celebrations – the final stop of trungduong as expected.

According to the designer Vo Viet Chung ” When the aodai ‘Hoi trung duong’ appears in public, they will realize that it is a harmonious combination of three features: embroidered skill, high-faluting art (such as our traditional calligraphy) and the skill of plaiting gems in the modern age.  As a difference from the primary outline, I invited the Chinese calligrapher, Truong Han Minh to write some old Vietnamese proverbs on the aodai. Handwriting characters are refined as if it hides behind clouds and flying dragons. ‘Hoi trung duong’ is a special story of national history and culture. We can see the image of Vietnamese women in the art of flower embroidering and brocading that passes on tradition from one generation to another. It holds the spirit of the nation.”
