Vietnam Fashion Week highlights nature The Saigon Times Daily Nung Mountain in Hanoi Botanical Garden is the main venue of the Vietnam Fashion Week Spring-Summer 2019 – PHOTO: COURTESY OF THE ORGANIZER HCMC – The Vietnam Fashion Week Spring-Summer 2019 for the first time is being held at Nung Mountain in Hanoi Botanical Garden rather than Vietnam Television’s studio as in previous editions to bring fashion closer to nature. In addition, to make the most of natural light and green scenery, each show will begin at 3 p.m. from September 11 to 13, instead of 8 p.m. According to fashion designer Minh Hanh, the current fashion trend in the world is to get closer to nature and therefore fashion shows are often organized at outdoor venues. Hanoi Botanical Garden is one of the green lungs in the capital, with many precious trees that are hundreds of years old. The venue is also where many generations of Hanoians have a lot of childhood memories, she added. The Vietnam Fashion Week Spring-Summer 2019 will introduce the latest spring-summer creations by 15 designers, including Phuong Thanh, Nhi Hoang, Tran Thanh Man, Cao Minh Tien, Huyen Nhung Nguyen, and Spanish designer Chula. The collections showcase new fashion trends, designers’ creations, and a wide variety of materials such as silk, jean, khaki, and chiffon, according to Nhan Dan newspaper.
