The first Vietnam - Myanmar Bridal Fashion Show 2019 was held last week at Rosewood Yangon Hotel by Collina Dreamcatcher with 2 Myanmar designers and 3 Vietnamese designers, demonstrating exquisite and extraordinary wedding outfit to the public.

To bring a mysterious and fashionable atmosphere during the show, the theme of the show is "The Secret Garden" with different decorations in the place. The highlight of the show is to showcase the wedding collection of Myanmar to the world as well as to introduce foreign designs to Myanmar. Designers from two countries communicate, interact and learn from each other. It is a chance for them to exchange their ideas, concepts and innovative designs.

“Not only is this a cultural exchange show, introducing the traditional wedding dresses of Vietnam and Myanmar, but also an opportunity to exchange the talents of both countries including fashion designers, models and visitors,” the MC said.

The two designers from Myanmar are designer Latt Latt and Nay Chi Nyan Win from June Fashion brand. The three Vietnamese brands and designers are brand Olivia Ng Boutique and Rosalia Bridal, and designer Kenny Thai.

Meanwhile, gifted Vietnamese models also participated in the show to present the wedding fashion. There were seven female models and eight kid models, involving model Mai Giang, Next Top Model Winner 2012 in Vietnam, as well as Miss Tieu Ngoc Linh, Top 5 Miss Universe Vietnam 2017. The show invited Ms. Cindy Thai Tai, the popular instructor of Vietnamese supermodel, to be the Catwalk Director.

“We come to promote culture, fashion and bilateral relationships between Vietnam and Myanmar. There is definitely something to learn in different countries, Myanmar as well. It’s a mutual understanding and learning,” Cindy said.

With the target of sustainable development by United Nation, every country endeavors to establish harmonious relationships with other countries by different means. This show is also one of them. 

“The more I come to Myanmar the more connected I feel. I believe love and peace can exist between us,” she expressed.
