The designs reflected young, elegant, luxurious styles cut with the latest laser cutting techniques and made from familiar materials such as felt, denim, lace, and cotton dyed in the bright colours that are the trend for autumn-winter 2012.
The opening show also introduced collections from three other designers including Vu Viet Ha, The Son and Hung Viet.
Many ideas were presented at the show, including Vu Viet Ha’s collection that told a love story about couples in the northern mountains.
From April 28-29, designs by the Thai Nguyen-TNG Garment Companies will be featured along with collections from many talented young designers such as Minh Ha, Mai Tram, Ha Duy, Quang Huy, Hai Long, The Huy, Minh Minh, Minh Hanh and F4, as well as the Chula brand by Spanish designer Diego Cortizas.
The ‘Go Green’ collection by Cortizas, featuring a cautionary tale presented through 30 of his women's designs, is expected to be a particular highlight of the event.
Fashion Week provides an opportunity for young designers to display their creations and exchange experiences.
Many familiar models from the Hanoi New Talent Company will take part in the fashion shows along with Miss Vietnam 2010 Ngoc Han, who will also make her debut in a new role as a designer for the F4 group.
The annual event, organised by the Vietnam Textile and Garment Group (VINATEX) and the Vietnam Textile and Apparel Association (VITAS), aims to create a better playing field for designers and promote the Vietnamese fashion industry.
