Did you know that Vietnamese artist Lê Phổ (1907 – 2001), a graduate of the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, is largely responsible for popularising the modern ao dai? We hope you enjoy this selection of his ao dai paintings.
Finally, our second Emporium store opened at #39 Xuan Dieu !!! We held a huge party for Asian Women & Friends Hanoi members and gave away free beauty & fashion make-overs to five lucky AWFH members. Thanks so much to Binh’s Hair Salon for giving our ladies a free hair make-over. Photos by Boris Lopatin
