With a desire of spreading the beauty of Vietnamese Ao dai along with a positive message of life, two Vietnamese designers Vu Ngoc Tu and Dinh Truong Tung were selected to show their new-style designs of Ao dai for both women and men with vibrant colors and textures at the Ho Chi Minh City Friendship Dialogue 2022

The design of traditional Ao dai was made with high-class brocade and silk that come from a source of the sky and the clouds' inspiration heading to the positive spirit and energy that symbolized peace and prosperity. 

Additionally, swallows' wings were designed harmoniously on the cobalt, violet and dark pink Ao dai collection of the two designers.
