Greetings from Vietnam!

I am a Hanoian girl who has been in love with the elegant beauty of the traditional Vietnamese Ao Dai since I was young. Watching my grandmother, mother, aunts, and my sister donning the graceful attire, I was captivated by its charm. For me, the Ao Dai embodies the spirit of Vietnamese women, exuding a gentle yet sophisticated allure that is uniquely its own.

Growing up, I pursued my passion for arts and music; as a “musician performer” I always chose Ao Dai as my costume for performances. I still remember my first Ao Dai, which my mother lovingly gave to me when I was fifteen years old, to celebrate my admission to the National Academy of Music in the Vocal Department. It was not only a gift to mark the occasion but also a garment that I could wear for my exams and performance at school.

One of the most memorable moments of my life was when I first became a MC for the cultural program “Xuan Tan Suu 2021” (New Years Festival 2021) on Vnews channel of Vietnam News Agency. Wearing a traditional three-part collar Ao Dai in lotus pink fabric, my hair neatly tied in a bun with a cross-pleated fringe, I stood on the studio stage, feeling overwhelmed with joy and pride. As I heard the cue, “Ready!” I stepped forward and went live on air, thrilled to represent myself as a Vietnamese woman, wearing a beautiful Ao Dai and serving my community.

When I heard about the “2LIFE Ao Dai” project by Toucher Arts, the project with a meaningful mission and humanity, I had no hesitation in donating my first Ao Dai, which my mother had given me. It had been with me through countless cultural events and marked a significant part of my life. I hope that this Ao Dai will continue to spread the culture of Vietnam to international friends in France and help support underprivileged children in Vietnam.

With love and gratitude,

Nguyen Minh Huyen
