The collection features 30 designs mostly in retro colours such as golden yellow, silver grey, black and white that are used in ceremonies. The clothes feature images of flowers and plants. 

The designs are made from Vietnamese and Italian fabrics. 

A staff of 20 seamstresses added Swarovski crystals worth US$10,000 on his clothes.

“These small rhinestones add sparkling colour and make my designs unique,” said Hai, who has more than 20 years of experience in the industry.
