Major changes in Ao Dai through different periods in history.
Ao Dai has overcome all challenges to become a “national dress”, a symbol of women, the pride of Vietnamese people. People could say, ao dai is “National soul” of Vietnamese women.
Ao Dai – traditional dress of women in Viet Nam, hugging the body, having neckline and knee- length. It was sawn off at the hip, both the sensuous charm, not scanty but still shows the line of a young woman. “Where women Viet Nam – Vietnamese dresses there.” Not merely traditional costumes, but also dresses as a culture to speak of perspectives and spiritual Vietnam package. In other words, it is the “national spirit” of women in Viet Nam.

The event aimed to bring back to life the image and culture of the ancient capital city, and the fine art and handicraft products of old Than Long-Hanoi people. This is considered as a special cultural and tourism product for Hanoi people and tourists to have chance to feel the space and soul of the old days in Hanoi.
