VIFW DAY 4: ONE NIGHT TWO STYLES

Crystal Phuong- Vietnam International Fashion Week 2016- Day 4 Streetstyle

On the last day of VIFW, I still had 3- 4 outfits unworn (I always pack more than I need especially when I go to a fashion week). Because I didn't know which outfit I should pick for the closing night, I decided to wear them both. Problem solved!

I wore this floral skirt and top set for the half of the night. Any crop-top with a big bow in front will instantly catch my attention. Loud and big floral printed material is a bonus. At first, I thought of pairing this crop top with a wide leg pants, but when I saw a matching skirt placed next to the top on the rack, I couldn't just pick one and leave the other. Besides, a midi skirt with pockets is my absolute favorite. This set became my first choice for a street style opportunity in a blazing afternoon in front of the show venue.

Right after the first segment of the evening was over, I quickly rushed back to my hotel room for a change. Since it's in the late evening, I thought it was a perfect time to show some sparkles on my feet (If you follow my #Crystalshoesgame hashtag on Instagram, you'll know that I'm obsessed with shoes). I bought a pair of Aquazurra shoes quite a while ago and only until VIFW, I could wear them out. It was just a plain pair of suede heels when I bought it. I thought "being plain is just boring" so I spent 2 weeks putting on every single crystal on it. The result is satisfying!

Because the shoes are so attention grabbing, I wanted to go light on the outfit and let my feet do the talking. I opted for a white lace top and a white pencil skirt. It probably was the most ordinary outfit that I've worn at the fashion week, but what I wanted was people looking at my beautiful shoes which they did. Was I noticeable enough? I think I was.

DressCamp from Japan brought the Japanese culture on the runway and reminded me of one thing. Fashion should always be fun or not at all.

Vietnamese fashion brand, Ivy Moda surprised me with a collection called "The Marble". As the name suggests, beautiful marble printed dresses with basic colors: black, white, and blue were seen on the models as they walked down the runway. I love the Va-va-voom factor in this collection.

I managed to capture a slow-mo of this dress just to show you how beautiful it looked on the runway. Totally my style!

Last but not the least, the most anticipated show of the night was Le Thanh Hoa's fashion show and it wasn't disappointing. From the preparation (dry leaves transported from miles away for this show) to the dresses, everything was perfect.

Literally, there was no better way to end the night and end the Spring/Summer fashion week. By the time, you are reading this, we are now preparing for the first Fall/Winter fashion week in Hanoi this coming November. I don't know what the organizer has up their sleeves just yet, but if you follow us closely on Instagram or Facebook, you shall find out.

Till then, thank you so much for reading! Thank you for having me as a part of Vietnam Fashion Week. It was a wonderful journey by far!
