Noted fashion designer Vo Viet Chung will launch a collection in Australia and New Zealand between October 25 and November 5 this year after last month’s success at Festival of Silk in Shanghai.

Chung, 36 years old, will introduce 200 ao dai, Vietnamese women’s traditional dress made of silk and Lanh My A, traditional fabric, here in coming two weeks.

This collection will display high fashion and occasional dresses that fit on women of all sizes. Designs include handmade patterns of pagoda, bohdi and lotus leaves which are traditional symbols.

Chung informed that his embroiderers took six months to finish the 15 designs.

He was selected among top five from 30 fashion designers competing at last month’s Festival of Silk. He exhibited his collection “Ms Ba from Vietnam” that included 15 designs based on ao dai and ao ba ba, the black silk pyjamas made from Lanh My A fabric.

After this show, he will participate in Singapore Fashion Week in Vietnam displaying 60 designs based on ao dai, ao ba ba and ao tu than, a four flapped Northern Vietnamese traditional dress.
