HCMCITY— The HCM City Fine Arts Association will open a special exhibition featuring áo dài (Vietnamese traditional dress) next week.
More than 50 designs from a collection of áo dài, called Mơ Hoang (Wild Dream), made and painted by artist Hà Hùng Dũng, will be displayed.
Many photos and paintings of áo dài by Dũng and his colleague, female artist Trần Thiên Thanh, will also be included.
