The fashion week which ran from December 6 to 12, is a tribute to the 90th birthday of Queen Sirikit, the Queen Mother of Thailand. It attracted more than 100 designers from Thailand and other countries, aiming to promote Thai silk and boost their cultural exchange and cooperation.

Participating in the fashion week for the first time, Vietnam’s Embassy to Thailand coordinated with the Association of Thai Silk Promotion and the Association of Thai Culture and Promotion, to organise the show “Vietnamese ‘Ao dai’ meets Thai silk”, with five collections by Vietnamese designers.

Designer Lan Huong said that her collection was inspired by the life cycle of rice and she wanted to convey a thank-you message to mother nature and a call for environmental protection to build a prosperous world, where people can enjoy a peaceful life and a peaceful world.

Using Thai silk to make 'ao dai", the designer also used hand-embroidered patterns, like Vietnam's terraced fields or the daily activities of mountainous people.
