It featured hundreds of ao dai sets from 16 collections of famous designers, namely Cao Duy, Viet Bao, Minh Hanh, and Ngoc Han, among others.

This year, designers use locally-made silks for their products, and decorated them with images of natural landscapes and world heritage sites in Vietnam’s central region, like Ho Dynasty Citadel in Thanh Hoa province, Phong Nha-Ke Bang cave in Quang Binh, and Hoi An ancient town and My Son Sanctuary in Quang Nam province.

The Hue Traditional Craft Festival 2019, the 8th edition, opened in the former imperial capital of Hue on April 26 with a grand ceremony.
