LookAtVietnam – Young designers of Ha Noi’s College for Fashion Studies (LCFS) will display their collections at a graduate fashion show and exhibition named Itinerary, on August 5-7.
The annual event introduces the 10 collections of eight graduating students and two fresh students of the college, which is a branch of UK’s Northumbria University in Viet Nam.
Each collection will consist of six outfits and be displayed during the three-day exhibition at the Garden Mall on Me Tri Street.
The fashion show with professional models displaying clothes will take place at 8pm, August 6.
Visitors will have a chance to learn about British fashion technology, from inception of an idea to its final production.
They will also get to enjoy the fashion designs of Vietnamese students and visit Style Zone, where specialists will help visitors find the most suitable make-up, hair and clothing style for them.
May Cortazzi, a fashion design lecturer, said the students are free to find their own inspiration to create their graduate collections.
“I have taught in the UK and I’m excited to teach Vietnamese students,” she said, “they are creative and talented, with an incredible skill that I haven’t seen before.”
Nguyen Phuong Linh’s collection is inspired by white flowers blooming in the night, a romantic look in her opinion.
“There is a feeling of mystery, wildness and purity in my outfits, with a combination of materials, shapes and patterns that give style and personality to the modern woman,” she said.
Meanwhile, other students find inspiration ranging from clowns in the circus to jellyfish in the ocean, or from French heroine, Joan of Arc to soaring eagles.
