Vietnamese Ao Dai is not only a kind of national costume but also contains a rich history, cultural traditions, aesthetic conceptions, national consciousness and the spirit of the Vietnamese people.
Vietnamese artist Chiron Duong translates the symbolism of the garment in his “Portraits of Ao Dai” photographic series.
The soft, gentle and discreet beauty of the Vietnamese Ao Dai is shown by its high neck, soft round shoulders and two graceful sleeves.
For him, Ao Dai is both an adjective and a noun. Ao Dai just evokes , rustic, simple, seductive Vietnamese women and contains many memories.
Through many changes of society and times, the Ao Dai has always been a beautiful symbol of the national culture, the pride of Vietnamese people.
