HA NOI (VNS) — A cultural show will be organised at the Temple of Literature in Ha Noi on October 10 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the capital's Liberation from the French in 1954.
The event, entitled Huong Sac Ha Noi (Ha Noi's Fragrance and Colours), will have art installations, music and fashion shows, which will celebrate the city's tangible and intangible heritage.
The audience will be able to interact with the performing artists and artisans from the villages on the city's outskirts. Craftsmen will display traditional handicraft skills onstage, such as pottery making from Bat Trang Village, paintings from Dong Ho Village and weaving of silk from Van Phuc Village.
Designer Anh Thu will introduce her latest collection of ao dai (traditional long dress) made of Van Phuc silk, which will have decorative patterns such as those on traditional ceramics from Bat Trang Village and the images of beautiful locations in the city.
Models will showcase the designs to the playing of the song Nong Nan Ha Noi (Fragrant Ha Noi), composed by Luu Ha An. The catwalk will be designed as a silk production workshop, with people shown to be weaving and drying silk.— VNS
