Traditional ethnic fashion on show at Son Tay fest

Traditional ethnic fashion on show at Son Tay fest Over 200 models representing 54 ethnic groups from around the country will join a fashion show on Nov. 28 at the Vietnam Culture Tourism Village in the town of Son Tay, 35km west of downtown Hanoi.

The show, part of the first Ethnic Costumes Festival that began on Nov. 26, will feature 200 sets of daily and festival costumes.

The programme will be broadcast live on Vietnam Television's VTV2 and VTV5 as well as Voice of Vietnam radio VOV4 channel.

The Vietnam Culture Tourism Village has been open for over a year with a mission to preserve and expose the traditional cultural heritage of the nation's ethnic groups. The village offers tourist accommodation, entertainment and a site for culture and sporting events.

The village displays models of the typical houses of many ethnic groups, representatives of one of which is invited to stay for about two weeks each month to offer tourists a closer look at their culture.

During the time the ethnic groups stay at the village and present such activities as a gong performance, buffalo-sacrificial ceremony, rice-planting, weaving, fishing and wedding ceremonies. (Source: VNA)
