Ho Chi Minh CityModel Huong Ly wearing a skirt made by hand made by Tran Hung, attends the Miss Universe Vietnam casting, March 20.
Designer Tran Hung used 1,000 pieces of organza and taffeta fabric to make the wings, bent by hand into flowers, and then attached to the skirt. She said: “I have a habit of saving excess fabric when creating a collection or making something for a customer. I aim to build a sustainable fashion brand, even if the fabric will be used instead of thrown away. Go”.
It took more than a month to perfect the costume, with the hardest part being choosing the fabric, which is all sewn by hand. How to arrange the colors for overall harmony and eye-catching is also noticed by Tran Hung.
While choosing an outfit to participate in Miss Universe Vietnam 2022, Huong Ly was impressed by the fashion model, so she decided to wear it in a behavioral contest. Her designs help her show off her bare shoulders, exuding femininity and the fashion story she wants to convey. The day before, the model opted for a tight dress, also designed by Tran Hung, which was inspired by fire.
Huong Ly returned to the contest after his previous two failed attempts – in 2017 and 2019 (in the Top 5 finalists). She said: “I want to discover myself more, beyond what I thought I couldn’t do. This will be the last time I try this beauty pageant. I want to win to be a contestant. Vietnam went to the international competition. Although a little nervous , I will try to beat the judges.”
The beauty is said to carry a comfortable contest spirit, a strong display with the theme “Winawoman – Vietnamese Courage”. She spends months training her body, appearance skills, foreign language… In 2019, Huong Ly brought the story of “a buffalo girl” who lived her dream of becoming a model. After three years, she wants to tell a story growing up, wants to cast her voice and help women in the mountains through the accompanying social projects.
