Behind the Forbidden City

This ao dai collection took inspiration from the ancient royal robes that were in vogue during the Nguyen Dynasty. It combines three dimensional hand embroideries of phoenixes and dragons – Asian symbols of royalty – with intricate cast bronze decorations. The collection represents an idealized image of Asian beauty – luxurious and seductive while evoking mystery and intrigue. These unique designs were specially created to promote and preserve Vietnam’s cultural heritage.
