VietNamNet Bridge – Last night a handmade ao dai worn by the Vietnamese representative at Miss Earth 2007 pageant contest was auctioned for $7,000 to raise funds for charity at the Gala Dinner Vinpearland.
The winner of the auction was Tran Minh Son, Director of the New Son Company. The auction is a very interesting part of the fancy party, where participants had to pay $200 each.
The starting price of this ao dai was $1,000, instead of $2,000 as the organisers announced before. However, it sold for $7,000.
Truc Diem cried when calling for benefactors to buy this ao dai to raise funds for disadvantaged children.
“This ao dai is not only made by hand, but it is made by hearts,” she said in English.
