Hanoi hosts exhibition on Vietnamese Traditional Costumes

A display of Vietnamese Royal and Traditional Costumes from the Ly Dynasty to the Nguyen Dynasty period (1009-1945) opened at Manzi Art Space in Hanoi.

A publication of traditional costumes of Vietnamese people from all levels of society throughout the last 1,000 years by the 28-year-old researcher Tran Quang Duc of the Vietnam Institute of Literature was also released earlier this year. The book has received much praise from experts and researchers at home and abroad.

The book is most likely one of the most in-depth and detailed studies on Vietnamese culture and clothing, both locally and internationally, said researcher Trinh Bach, who has spent many years studying traditional culture, especially Vietnamese royal costumes.

The event will end on September 9.
