"The fashion week is a rendezvous for designers to exchange ideas and show their creations," she said. "It's also an attractive cultural event for fashion lovers."
Nearly 20 trademarks with hundreds of outfits will be paraded tonight and Saturday evening at the Grand Plaza, 117 Tran Duy Hung Street, Ha Noi. Among the models will be Thu Ha (Top 10 Miss Viet Nam 2010), Hong Nhung (Top 10 Miss Viet Nam 2008) and Ha Hoang Anh (Miss Ao Dai at Miss World Vietnamese).
Fashionistas will see spring and summer season designs by Do Trinh Hoai Nam, Xuan Thu and Giao Linh, as well as trademarks such as Alcado, Woman Rock, Camello and Mittex.
Designer Linh will introduce a contemporary-classic collection named Paint Me Beautiful with canvas patterns and soft materials such as silk and lace.
Designers of Alcado will feature Summer's Colours.
The stage and catwalk will be decorated in simple and modern style with white as the decisive colour, said Tam.
"We will use colour and lights as a kind of visual art to highlight the models. The stage will be decorated with flowers only, we don't want unnecessary decorative objects to divert attention."
The fashion show is the result of co-operation between the Dong Tay Commerce and Technology Company and the Viet Nam National Textile and Garment Group.
