Traditional tho cam (brocade) patterns are combined with the modern T-shirt in the collection. Adrian is the founder of the Valenciani shops and collections, and a judge for Vietnam's Next Top Model 2015.
The Designs from the Village range of T-shirts, inspired by the traditional weaving techniques of K'Long and B'No villagers in Lam Dong province, are sold exclusively at Robins Department Stores in HCM City and Hanoi. Profits from the sales will be donated to the villagers.
Robins has also offered K'Long and B'No villagers a dedicated space at Robins Department Store to showcase their beautiful and authentic brocade products.
