VietNamNet – Vietnam’s leading fashion designer Minh Hanh has been honoured by the French Ministry of Culture and Information for her contributions to boosting France-Vietnam cooperation in the area of fashion.

The French Consul General, Nicolas Warbery, presented Dang Thi Minh Hanh with the title of “Arts and Literacy Knight” of the Minister of Culture and Information, Renaud Donedieu de Vabres, in Ho Chi Minh City on June 5.

Minh Hanh, Director of the Ho Chi Minh City-based Vietnam Fashion and Design Institute was the country’s first fashion stylist who has been granted this title.

The French Consulate General in Ho Chi Minh City said that over the past years, Minh Hanh has acted as a bridge linking France and Vietnam in the fashion area. In 2001, she was invited to be a member of the jury of ESMOD International Fashion School. One year later, she organised a show, entitled “White Night,” in Paris” and the other, named “Far East,” in Nantes.

She has also been a partner of the French Embassy in Ha Noi and the French Consulate General in Ho Chi Minh City in organising the Hue Festival, a symbol of bilateral cooperation in the cultural and arts field.
