New ao dai designs for festive season
Veteran designer Dao Le Dieu Anh has introduced her latest ao dai (Vietnamese long dress) collection in celebration of the upcoming festive season and Lunar New Year (Tet).
The collection is based on shiny velvet and soft denim, the two trendy materials in the world for this Fall-Winter season 2016. According to Anh, velvet with its soft texture helps augment the beauty and elegance of women.
Ao dai in this new collection maintains traditional and basic features with raglan shoulders and shallow necks and button lines along the body.
A highlight of this collection is a combination of ao dai and Western-style wide pants suitable for women in casual and special occasions.
