“We decided to organise the 2020 Vietnam Junior Fashion Week and Vietnam Runway Fashion together because we wanted to help fashion brands and designers, most of which offer designs for both adults and children, save their time and money amid the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Xuân Lan, a model and head of 2nd Vietnam Runway Fashion’s organising board.
“Both fashion weeks will be organised in the same place, White Palace, and will help to connect Vietnamese fashion designers and models and customers.”
“We hope our events will offer participants the opportunity to promote their brand names and sales,” said Lan, owner of Xuân Lan’s Model Academy which offers training courses in fashion modelling, catwalking and photography.
Lan is also a founder of the annual Vietnam Junior Fashion Week (VJFW), which first opened in 2016. It encourages Vietnamese fashion houses, companies and designers to develop children's clothes. Last year, the event attracted 200 boys and girls from Hà Nội, Đà Nẵng, Cam Ranh and HCM City.
The two fashion weeks will close on October 31 at White Palace on 194 Hoàng Văn Thụ Street in Phú Nhuận District. — VNS
