The event is co-organised by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism (MoCST), the Embassy of Vietnam in the US, and the Vietnamese Permanent Mission to the UN.
It is expected to contribute to promoting cultural exchanges and bilateral relations between the two countries.
A wide range of activities will take place in the framework of the event including MoCST Minister’s visit to the US, traditional ethnic music and dance performances, an art programme entitled ‘Essence of Vietnam’, and a Vietnamese cultural space themed ‘Colours of Vietnam’ which will showcase Vietnam’s traditional costumes and musical instruments.
Vietnamese renowned designer Minh Hanh along with her colleagues LanHuong, QuangNhat and Chula will also introduce their collections at a ‘Miraculous Transformation’ fashion show. The collection is a combination of materials, including jean – a popular material in the US – and silk and brocade – traditionally Vietnamese materials.
