HA NOI (VNS )- The famed impressionism of French painting in the 19th century is the inspiration for the Ha Noi-based fashion designer Nguyen Dieu Huyen latest collection to be presented in a fashion show in Ha Noi on Sunday night.
Entitled Le Tepms des Fleurs (The Time of Flowers), the fashion show will kick-off the France-Viet Nam Year in Viet Nam, which features a wide range of activities in various areas such as economics, education, research, culture, arts, tourism, sports, architecture, and fashion.
According to the designer, who is currently a lecturer at the Department of Fashion of the University of Industrial Fine Arts, her creations present trendy baroque patterns as well as flower prints, using light and colourful shades.
