HUẾ — The Áo dài fashion show, one of the major events at the ongoing biennial Huế Festival, was held in Huế yesterday evening.
This year’s show witnessed more enthusiasm from audiences, compared with the 2014 show, thanks in part to the improved design of the traditional Vietnamese costumes on display, as well as the stage setting.
The stage lighting created an ambiance that provided a comfortable setting for audiences to enjoy the beauty of each áo dài sample.
Local residents offered greater praise of this year’s show, as they watched the modeling of áo dài by local school girls, and performances by native Huế
However, many in the audiences said the fashion show was too short.
Việt Nam News’ reporters captured photos at the show.
