The event, organised by the Vietnamese embassy in Italy, the Rome council, the Museum of Rome, Gattinoni fashion house and the Italian embassy in Vietnam, is part of  the Vietnam Culture Week in Italy.

Minh Hanh plans to demonstrate her technical skill and spirit through a collection centred on contrasting fabrics, jean and brocade.

Lan Huong, a designer known for her ao dai (traditional long dress), will stay loyal to tradition with silk ao dai and hand embroidery.

Cong Khanh will portray his homeland via images of storks flying on boundless fields and sarus cranes, a vulnerable bird typical of the marshy countryside.

Nhat will show off linens made by ethnic peoples in the mountainous province of Ha Giang, as well as handmade accessories depicting the beauty of Vietnamese ancient architecture.

Each designer will display 10-15 outfits at the show. Designer Hanh said she recruited the three other designers in the fashion show because they are young emerging designers.

Miss Vietnam 2010 Ngoc Han, Miss Sea 2010 Nguyen Thi Loan, Miss Photogenic 2002 Phuong Lien, and Roman will also be attending the event to model the designs.

At the Italy event, the Vietnamese ambassador Nguyen Hoang Long is scheduled to announce a cooperation plan on sustainable development of the fashion industry between Vietnam and Italy through the Italy-Vietnam Fashion Council.

The council is comprised of well-known designers of the two countries, represented by President Stephano Dominella of Gattinoni and Vietnamese designer Minh Hanh.

The fashion show will take place at Palazzo Braschi - Museo Di Roma, a castle from the Renaissance period (1782 - 1812) that continues its artistic heritage.
