In the year 2010, Ha Noi will be celebrating its 1000 years anniversary. VietNam has been preparing for this year long celebration for the past 5 years.  Also joining the celebration will be designer David Minh Đức and his collection of 1,000 ao dais.  He and his team is to research, investigate, and create a complete collection of ao dais retelling its story throughout times.

David Minh Đức loved designing since he was 13.  After 20 years in the business, he is mostly known his work in Miss Earth 2007.  Here is the clip from Miss Earth 2007 showcasing his design:

I’m  excited to see how this collection will be presented, since it is 1,000 ao dais.  I like Minh Duc for his “old” style ao dais, very loosely fitted, but combined with beautiful fabric.  It is also great to see the history of this dress.  Here are some samples from the collection:
