CAN THO — An exhibition of costumes worn in the southern region and photos of them has opened at Can Tho Museum. Besides the majority Kinh, many other ethnic groups like the Cham, Khmer, BaNa, EDe and Stieng also live here. Each group has its own distinct costumes both for daily life and important events. The exhibition, held in co-operation with the Viet Nam Southern Women’s Museum also features jewels like ear-rings, bracelets, necklaces, and rings made of gold, silver, crystal and stone. The highlights are rare traditional costumes like hat with glass beads used by Khmer brides in Can Tho and those worn by women musicians in the early 20th century, and printed materials about the birth of the ao dai. The exhibition, being organised to mark the 36th anniversary of the liberation of the south and country’s reunification, will go on until August 14.
