On display are 200 Ao Dai designs presented by 20 designers, which will later be added to the museum's collections.

The Ao Dai designs bring viewers to many natural and cultural heritages through different patterns highlighting many aspects of life, cultural heritages and beliefs.

The collections of Ao Dai were made from diverse materials and colours, contributing to bringing art and traditional features closer to the public.

Visitors to the exhibition will have the chance to learn more about the development history as well as the process of making Ao Dai designs.

On the occasion, visitors can exchange with famous Ao Dai designers including Minh Hanh, Ngoc Han and Laura Fontan, a Spanish person who has a special love for Ao Dai and Vietnamese culture.
