The glamour of Vietnamese Ao dai (traditional long dress) was brought closer to our international friends through a stellar show jointly held by the Vietnamese Embassy in the Republic of Korea and the Korea Foundation for International Culture Exchange (KOFICE) on August 30.

The event is part of the art exhibitions and performances which are underway at the KOFICE’s headquarters to mark the 72nd anniversary of Vietnam’s National Day and the 25th anniversary of the diplomatic relations between the two countries.

The Ao dai show featured 10 designs of the traditional dress by famous designer Si Hoang, which were embroidered with the national flowers of the ASEAN member states.

Hoang said that the cultural event will make significant contributions to promoting people-to-people exchanges and tightening the bilateral relations.

Vietnamese culture was also highlighted through performances of dan bau (monochord), sao truc (bamboo flute) and dan T’rung (bamboo xylophone).
