VietNamNet Bridge – HCM City’s designer Cong Tri introduced his Haute Couture collection named No. 8 to open the Vietnam international fashion week at Gem Center in HCMC’s District 1. The collection follows the avant-garde school, inspired by futurism and science fiction.
Through the collection, the designer wants to indicate a social problem resulting from the virtual world or social networks that have overwhelmed young people’s life. What people need to urgently do is to lead a real life instead.
The week will also feature creations by international designers, including Zio Song from South Korea, Italian designer Antonio Grimaldi, Frederick Lee from Singapore, Somarta from Japan, and Tsolo Munkhuu from Mongolia and international brands like On Aura Tout Vu, Defined Moment and Atelier Chardon Savard from France, and Thai brand ISSUE.
Local fashion talents introducing their designs at the event are Adrian Anh Tuan, Chung Thanh Phong, Hoang Hai, Hoang Minh Ha, Ly Giam Tien, Le Thanh Hoa, and Li Lam.
A menswear collection by Korean designer Zio Song will wrap up the show which is broadcasted live on VTV3 at 8 p.m. on December 6. The national television channel will also introduce to viewers a selection of hundreds of designs featured at the first Vietnam International Fashion Week.
