- Story Text: The "Junko Koshino Paris Collection Spring/Summer 1995" was held at the Vietnam-Soviet cultural palace in Hanoi on Wednesday (November 23), following successful showings in Paris and Singapore.
Japanese designer, Junko Koshino presented some ethnic Japanese designs and modern European garments showcased by 15 international models from Japan, Korea, Philippines, Singapore, and Europe.
Eighteen aspiring Vietnamese mannequins hand-picked by Koshino also took part in the show.
The use of natural materials and the colours of nature were combined with modern cuts and silhouettes to result in a modern yet ethnic design concept interplayed with lights and music.
Koshino said that fashion design has a potential in Vietnam as it appears to have retained some of its French influences.
Koshino also predicted that in the next century the Vietnamese women traditional dress called "ao dai" (aw zai) will become popular in many countries.
It was the second major international fashion show held in the capital since it opened up to the outside world. French designer Pierre Cardin staged shows in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City last year.
Tickets for the show were sold at five U.S. dollars each, which is quite expensive for ordinary Vietnamese, to raise money for the Handicapped Children's Fund under Vietnam's National Youth Theatre.
