HÀ NỘI — A fashion show of brocades created by Vietnamese jewelry designer Minh Hạnh will take place at the United Nations Office in Geneva, Switzerland today.
 

Veteran designer Minh Hạnh earned the honour of being the Vietnamese representative to introduce the country’s style to the world by presenting the brocade collection at the United Nations building. The collection will be presented to Swiss diplomats and the public today at the Palace of Nations, the main conference hall at the UN office.

The event is part of the activities celebrating the 40th anniversary of Việt Nam joining the UN. Geneva is home to the second-biggest headquarters of UN in the world, after New York. It hosts more than 10,000 international conferences every year.

On this occasion, Việt Nam’s Ambassador to the UN, Dương Chí Dũng, also hosted a solemn meeting at the Geneva UN Office.

With her latest collection inspired by the natural beauty of Việt Nam’s mountains, designer Hạnh said she wishes to promote a modern image of contemporary Việt Nam.

The showcase space will be full of bamboo, with the installation created by Trần Trọng Linh, a Vietnamese painter living and teaching at Switzerland, who is famous for his unique spatial arrangements.   

Additionally, artist Phó An My will perform new compositions inspired by the Mông ethnic group’s traditional folk songs. The show will feature the participation of 25 models from France, Switzerland and Việt Nam.— VNS
