It was the third time the designer had introduced her creations in Russia.

Vietnamese artisans were also invited to the event to demonstrate their brocade weaving skills to visitors.

Speaking at the event, Counsellor and Chargé d'affaires at the Vietnamese Embassy in Russia Nguyen Quynh Mai thanked leaders of the Tsarisino Museum, the State Museum of Oriental Art and units concerned for creating favourable conditions for the organisation of the event, which came in concurrent with Vietnamese Women’s Day (October 20).

Designer Hanh told reporters that an exhibition on silk and brocade weaving was held on October 21 in Koloma, dubbed as a silk city of Russia.

She also hoped that she could soon hold a fashion show in Saint Petersburg, ancient capital of Russia.

Earlier, she delivered a lecture on Vietnam’s traditional long dress at Moscow State Linguistic University in late 2018 and introduced a collection of brocade and traditional long dresses at the State Museum of Oriental Art in June.
