The History of Vietnamese 'Ao dai'

Ao Dai Tu Than ( Áo dài Tứ thân - 17th century)

According to researchers and artifacts at the Ao Dai museum, Ao Giao Linh has been modified to make it more convenient for women to work and produce. The two front flaps of the shirt are sewn apart to tie together, the two back flaps sewn together to form a lapel. 

This type of shirt is often seen in dark colors, which is considered a rustic and modest shirt that symbolizes the 4 births of the couple.

    I flew Vietnam Airlines a few years ago and the stewardesses were all wearing a modernised version of the Ao Dai.
    They looked so beautiful that I kept ordering drinks so that they would walk by, and I could check them out! I was quite drunk when I eventually landed in Ho Chi Minh! Unfortunately it was just a transit stop for me, but I felt like I got a feel for the essence of Vietnam, just by seeing the Ao Dai!

      Hi Tony , your story is really interesting, cannot imagine how drunken you were if your flight was to the other faraway land:-) The Ao Dai itself always boasts well the woman’s beauty, they even look more beautiful on the stewardesses as many of them are models and Miss Vietnam:-) Thank you for your story, i do like it:-) Cheers!

    What an interesting post! I had no idea that Vietnam had an iconic dress, which is very beautiful. I found very interesting the history of dress and I loved that you put different pictures of the dress.
