VIFW DAY 2: RUNNING IN LACE

Crystal Phuong- Vietnam Fashion Week Streetstyle day 2

After the first day in Vietnam Fashion Week, I started feeling more relaxed and enjoying while it lasted. Honestly, I was a bit stressed at first about not being well-prepared for the event due to the last minute decision. I knew no one there except for Ms. Trang Le, the president of Vietnam International Fashion Week, who I have the honor to call her a friend. What would I do there for nine days? I had so much work to do after coming back from New York Fashion Week, how could I finish? Many things popped up on my head to stop me from going. But I decided to attend Vietnam Fashion Week regardless because I wanted to support my friend and to learn more about Vietnam fashion landscape. On late Saturday night, I booked a flight. On Sunday morning, I jetted off. Just like that! 

That spontaneous decision turned out to be the best one. I had a fantastic time in Vietnam, met many wonderful people, and talked to many talented Vietnamese and international fashion designers. Everyone was so kind, warm, and friendly. Not to mention I had a photoshoot done in the middle of Saigon, with a young and talented photographer, Chanh Nguyen, whom I met at the event. I couldn't think of shooting at any other places that represent the country better than the street itself. A street with full of motorcyclists is a trademark of Vietnam, and any tourist that has the courage to cross the road without traffic light is a hero. 

Guess what? After being away from the country where I was born for 11 years, I was able to cross the road. I felt like a hero. I mean, you don't see a blonde-hair girl wearing a blue lace dress, striking cobalt blue heels, and sparkling clutch crossing the road on a regular day, do you?
