The show made a good impression on locals and tourists with a harmonious combination between the ao dai, dances and effects of sound, light and music.

This year's program brought together famous ao dai designers such as Viet Hung, Thieu Vy, Ngo Nhat Huy, Minh Hung, Nguyen Tuan, Minh Trieu - Uyen Thy and BellaModa with over 400 delicate designs along with the catwalk performances of Misses and models from the three regions of the country.

Throughout the program, "Golden Hue" brought the audience back in time and introduced the history of the formation and development of the Vietnamese ao dai in general and the traditional Hue ao dai in particular. Each collection showed the unique style and design ideas of each designer, but all embraced the harmony and the link between fashion and culture. Many collections showed the main highlight of Hue Festival 2018, focusing on the designs and patterns of Hue royal life.

Along with the show, this year's program also featured outstanding performances of singers Ho Quynh Huong, Long Nhat, elite artist Hoang Hang, and many other singers, actors, VKSTAR dancers and the Vietnamese Wind Dance Group.

Ms. Nguyen Lan Vy, director of the program said: "I am lucky that I am from Hue so I understand Hue people and culture. We choose the theme "Golden Hue" with a desire to showcase Hue's rich and deep culture to viewers, especially visitors.

According to Ms. Vy, compared with the previous shows, the program of this year's ao dai show had some differences. It created new colors for the program from the new designs and patterns. Though related to royal styles, the collections were completely different from each other. In addition, there were also ao dai made from fresh flowers that brought a new color to the show.

At the show, many people and tourists were excited. Ms. Nguyen Viet Nga, a tourist from Ho Chi Minh city shared: "This is the second time I have seen the ao dai program at Hue Festival. This show impresses me with the richness and variety of the ao dai. The collections are beautifully designed. The art performances are also very good."
