2LIFE AO DAI (read as Second Life Ao Dai) was created as a revival dream, a wish to give a second life to the used but still elegant Ao Dai, turn it into a cultural gift for France, and come with a story of the memories associated with the Ao Dai.

These Ao Dai will be given to French people who participate in Toucher Arts' event to raise funds for Vietnamese children in need.

2LIFE AO DAI started from March to May 2023 and is proud to have received more than 500 Ao Dai from the Vietnamese community all around the world.
