Gorgeous Nhat Binh ao dai

TTH.VN - The Nhat Binh ao dai is a precious heritage of the Nguyen Dynasty, it has now become a popular dress of Hue women on the occasion of wedding, and been increasingly chosen by young girls when going sightseeing, and checking in, etc.

Nhat Binh ao dai was originally a type of court dress for queens, concubines and princesses of the Nguyen Dynasty. The collar part of the dress has a large rectangular design, and the two-panel part is fixed with lanyard. When the dress is worn, its front part is shaped into a rectangle, so that why the dress is named “Nhat Binh”.

Finding myself again in Ao dai

My childhood was marked with the image of my mother stroking her ao dai flat before going out (Ao dai is traditional costume for women (and men) in Vietnam.) At that time, cloth produced in the country was cheap; my mother had many ao dai of different colors tailored. She wore ao dai everywhere she went on every occasion.
