Áo dài

The Vietnamese “Ao Dai”, the long gown worn with trousers by Vietnamese women, has become the symbol of the Vietnamese feminine beauty, & the pride of the Vietnamese people.

The Ao dai for men, on the other hand, did not undergo much change. It is now worn only during traditional ceremonies and mostly by men of older generations. The masculinity và practicality of Western men’s clothing has been eagerly embraced by Vietnamese men, and the return to lớn the traditional Ao dẻo is simply impractical, if not unthinkable. The Ao dai for men has become an thành phầm of purely nostalgic value for today’s and future generations.

The history of the Ao dẻo reflects the adaptability of the Vietnamese. As people who constantly had to lớn defend themselves against foreigners, they adopted products of foreign cultures which they valued & transformed them into their own. Thus, the women’s Ao dai is a cultural metamorphosis that is typically Vietnamese: a thiết kế adopted from the Cham that combines with Western elements of fashion và aesthetics to lớn become a product that is uniquely Vietnamese.
