After the show, the collections remain on display at the LCDF, 98 To Ngoc Van Street, Hanoi, for one week.
The highlight of the event is Luong Thi Ngoc Quynh with the collection Admonito, reflecting traffic safety. She uses waterproof materials, denim, leather and lace to create a collection with slogans such as “fasten seat belts” and “stop drinking”.

Jamie Nguyen Bao promotes a message of saving and recycling with the collection Pattern of Thoughts in which he reuses old clothes from family members.
Vu Thi Khanh Linh uses strong colours such as red, orange and yellow in the collection Beyond Original. She finds inspiration from endless sand dunes. Like Bao, Linh also creates clothes from recycled materials.
