Hoa Van Dai Viet seeks to revive ancient Vietnamese costumes

A ceremony was held on January 20 to announce the establishment of Hoa Van Dai Viet Co. Ltd and to unveil a project to revive old Vietnamese costumes from the Ly to the Nguyen Dynasties using graphical technology.

The period costumes will be sketched into vector-based drawings that are true to history. The project aims to provide accurate knowledge about the designs, materials and aesthetics of the costumes of Vietnamese people in the past.

Various ancient costumes recreated by Hoa Van Dai Viet.

Its vector-based designs are expected to be applied to a wide variety of fields in the future, such as illustrations about or inspired by period costumes as the foundation for costume restoration, historical drama and comic projects.

The designs of ancient costumes can also be used in products such as statues, dolls, key rings and T-shirts.

Such drawings will be divided into three periods: Ly-Tran Dynasty, Le Dynasty and Nguyen Dynasty and illustrated in both anatomically accurate and chibi art styles to make them more accessible for young people, said Nguyen Thanh Hieu, Director of Hoa Van Dai Viet.

The predecessor of Hoa Van Dai Viet Co. Ltd is a crowd-funded project to recreate ancient Vietnamese patterns by vector drawings with a view to preserving and promoting Vietnamese arts through the ages.
