Top Vietnam ao dai designer makes for Miss Vietnam USA clothes

Lien Huong, a famous designer of the traditional Vietnamese dress ao dai, has arrived in the US with costumes for the 60 finalists of the Miss Vietnam USA beauty pageant.

It took Huong, who flew in late last week, four months to make the 60 ao dais, mostly in silk, after being commissioned by the contest organizers.

Of them, 40 designs are from her Sac Xuan (Spring beauty) collection while the others are among her all-time favorites.

The final of the 4th Miss Vietnam USA contest is scheduled for Saturday, September 2, at the Cashman Center Theater in Las Vegas.

For the first time the contest is open to young Vietnamese women from countries other than the US (except Vietnam).
