Ao Dai to Enchant APEC

The Thai Tuan Textile Company is busy designing and making 600 ao dai for the upcoming Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Summit in Ha Noi.

The designers have made a combination of various patterns o­n those costumes in order to create the image of a traditional but integrated Viet Nam.

The logo of APEC Viet Nam 2006, the lotus – generally known as Viet Nam’s symbol, Vietnamese birds and the bronze drums will appear o­n the traditional clothes.

Those ao dai will be put o­n by APEC female volunteers and liaison officers.

The company hopes it is a chance to introduce the beauty of ao dai to delegates from APEC economies.
