This contest is not only a helpful game field for the students, learners, and young people in the area of HCM City who have a passionate interest in fashion design, but also an environment for meeting, communicating, and sharing the golden experience between the fashion design companies with prestigious trade names, and the leading fashion designers in Vietnam. It is also a bridge for development of human resources for businesses operating in Vietnamese and the international industry of fashion design. Moreover, it is a good occasion for universities having Fashion Design Departments to publicize their image and training quality and also for attracting students to enter their fashion design branch. As one of the nationally prestigious schools which have trained fashion designers, Hoa Sen University collected 17 fashion collections designed by the students of its Fashion Design Department, and selected the three best collections of these for the finals of this contest. These outstanding results are a tribute to Hoa Sen University’s quality of training.
