Vietnamese Traditional Long Dress - Ao Dai
Most countries have their own traditional dresses, such as Japan's Kimono, Korea's Hanbok and China's Cheongsam. Vietnam is no exception, having a traditional long dress, known as Ao Dai. I want to help readers all over the world know about this dress through my feeling, because it is very beautiful and contains the beauty of one people. It is related to the Vietnamese culture, people, history and so on. The Vietnamese traditional dress, "Ao Dai", is one of the most elegant and beautiful dresses for women. It's very simple, consisting of a close-fitting blouse, with long panels in the front and back, that is worn over loose white trousers. As a Vietnamese girl who loves to travel abroad, sometimes I bring one to travel with me. Whenever I wear it, my Ao Dai always attracts friendly looks from both locals and travelers. An Irish poster to the Thorn Tree travel forum wrote to me saying "You must get a wonderful reaction from the local people when you wear your traditional long dress. I think you would stop the traffic, if you were to wear it walking down a street in Ireland." It makes me very happy to hear this, and I am proud of our traditional long dress so much. I want readers to know a special point about the Ao Dai. This garment can be worn with a conical hat (Non) or a turban of the same color. I wish I could bring a conical hat with me more often when traveling abroad, but it would require a lot of care, as this kind of hat is very soft and easily deformed. Certainly, a photo of a Vietnamese girl wearing a conical hat would be essential for a trip abroad. Every girl in Vietnam has at least one traditional long dress, as it is not expensive to make. Whenever we wear them, because of the long trousers, high heel sandals or shoes are necessary, and make the girls look taller. The traditional color of the trousers is white, but now many colors are acceptable. The Ao Dai is worn on such special occasions as engagements and wedding ceremonies, contract signing ceremo
Development of Silk Material in Vietnamese Garments
For a long time, silk material has been a popular garment material in Vietnam. People have used silk to design costumes for members of the royal family. Nowadays, silk is widely used for lots of fashion products. Silk has good characteristics that make it a favorable material. Silk is said to be the most luxurious, comfortable fabric. It is the most absorbent of fabrics (equal to wool). In addition, it is also the best fabric for drape and color. Silk is capable of the greatest luster and is the strongest natural fabric. Silk clothes are cool in summer and warm in winter. Therefore, it is greatly desired and favored by customers. Seventy percent of the silk clothes in the Vietnamese market are made locally. Silk material can be used for different garments such as dresses, designer silk shawls, scarves, embroidered blankets, jackets and embroidered silk suits. This material is also used to produce shirts and pants. Silk bags are also plentiful in Vietnam's garment markets today. Moreover, long dresses made by silk are the most well-known Vietnamese girls' image. Silk clothes make the wearer beautiful and feel like the special person that they are. Also, silk combined with embroidered artwork makes people more attractive and confident. Ha Dong silk or Van Phuc silk are famous brand names in Vietnam and in foreign countries. The Van Phuc silk village lies to the south-west of Hanoi in the Red River Delta. The art of silk weaving is said to have begun as long as 2,000 years ago. The weavers of Ha Dong used to supply their precious cloth to various dynasties. Under the Nguyen Dynasty, Ha Tay's silk villages were required to 'respectfully offer' a yearly quota of top quality silk to the court in Hue. Weavers worked for three to eight months to produce a single royal cloth, receiving no payment besides an exemption from some labor and, if the cloth was accepted, a silver or gold medal. Today, residents of traditional silk villages like La Ca, Trieu Khuc and Van Phuc are st

It is harder for an importer to choose a supplier. Clothing businesses all over the world always find the best supplier with the cheapest price and best quality for them. They don't want to pay high prices for their products when purchasing. It's because all buyers want big sales and a fast turnover of their products. Brisk sales mean that buyers will be able to get their investment back plus their profits much more quickly. The likelihood that the clothes they sell will go out of style before they can sell them will also be minimized. These are a few important things to keep in mind about the 3 different markets that buyer and supplier can target in business: The most important is "Clothes for women".
