Models on the runway, fashionistas on the streets of Hà Nội. It’s that time of the year again. The Fall-Winter Vietnam International Fashion Week (VIFW) is underway. Here are a few shots of the vibrant and sensational event-of-the-year for Vietnamese and international fashion lovers. Avid fans can stop by Tràng Tiền Plaza, located in the heart of the capital, to pick up their favourite items right after they debut on the runway. This perk is an attempt by organisers to better support designers and fight design-copying and counterfeit merchandise.
