Vietnam, Italy cooperate in fashion design industry

The Italian Foreign Ministry opened an iconographic exhibition on design, industry and architecture, titled "50+! The Great Industry Game" at Casa Italia, 18 Le Phung Hieu street, Hanoi on Thursday as part of the Italian Design Day celebrations.

Designer Minh Hanh and other Vietnamese young designers told Italian Design Ambassador Barbara Trebitch of difficulties facing the Vietnamese fashion design industry. Hanh said she hoped to organize a fashion tour for young Vietnamese designers to learn experience from foreign experts including those from Italy:"Hanoi is the capital city of Vietnam's fashion. If we understand our values and have a right strategy, Hanoi will become a fashion center in Southeast Asia."

The Italian designer said she wanted to help Vietnam's fashion industry and stressed the importance of vocational training for designers.
