The History of Vietnamese 'Ao dai'

Ao Dai Raglan 

Ao Dai Raglan, also known as Jack Lang Ao Dai, appeared in 1960, created by Dung tailor in Dakao, Saigon.

The most significant difference of the Raglan Ao Dai is that the shirt hugs the body more tightly, connecting the arms from the diagonal neck down to a 45-degree angle. This helps the wearer to be more comfortable and flexible. 

The two flaps are connected by a row of buttons on the side. This is the style of Ao Dai that contributes to shaping the fashion of Vietnamese Ao Dai in the future.

    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.
