The event is organized in collaboration with the Trinh Cong Son family, the project “Vietnamese Brands - Golden Moments,” and Vietnam Brand Purpose.

More than just a typical fashion shows, “Dieu – Colors of Time” creates a special artistic space, with the central focus being the outstanding creations of Dieu's Ao dai. This collection is inspired by Trinh Cong Son's song Bon mua thay la (Four seasons of Changing leaves) and presented through four chapters: Chieu Dong”, “Giang Thu”, “Hien Ha” and “Nghinh Xuan”.

The artistic performances convey messages and stories associated with the stages of ups and downs and the development of Vietnamese culture, as well as the flow of time in a person's life. The colors and artistic creativity on the Ao dai depict the four seasons of changing leaves as the “Colors of Time,” evoking unexpected emotions due to their uniqueness and differentiation in artistic elements and techniques.

Trinh Hoang Dieu has skilfully and innovatively used a new technique in Ao dai tailoring that no other designer has explored before – the crochet technique. The crochet lines demonstrate the craftsmanship of the artist, made entirely by hand, and serve as a creative highlight in Trinh Hoang Dieu's designs. Crochet is not just a technique; in this collection, crochet lines are an art form, replacing traditional patterns.

The uniqueness of the collection lies in its simplicity, with minimal colors, details, and patterns. Breaking away from dragon and phoenix patterns of Hue royal style, it creates a more expansive space for Ao dai, suitable for various cultural regions of Vietnam. The collection preserves the gentle and graceful essence of Vietnamese women while remaining youthful for the modern and dynamic young individuals.

The “Dieu – Colors of Time” show features the participation of artists such as Alexander Tu and Sebastien Ly - choreographers, Linh Nga – a dancer, Alex Fox – a model, dance group LYRICIST, along with many other artists and models. Notably, it includes the presence of Professor Dr. Thai Kim Lan and the singer Trinh Vinh Trinh.

Telling stories of heritage on Ao dai

The antique architectural constructions, the bridges which are inherent with the history of the Capital, as well as the traditional royal dances, or just simply the dragon boats, paper flower lanterns, etc., were described innocently but gracefully and meticulously and prettily on Ao dai by the children.

Encouraging the young generation to fall in love with Ao Dai

Ao Dai, no matter how beautiful and culturally significant it is, must also incorporate fashion elements and be adapted to fit the modern era in order to remain relevant. How can we attract the attention of the young generation to the traditional Ao Dai, so they will wear it proudly and honor its beauty and cultural heritage? This is not a task that can be achieved overnight.
