Fashion show intermingles Vietnam-Japan cultures

Japanese designer Junko Koshino has introduced her fashion collection “Spectrum” in Hanoi to mark the 45th anniversary of diplomatic ties between Vietnam and Japan. The fashion show was performed at “Japan Day at the Manor Central Park” and is Junko Koshino’s second one in Hanoi since 1994.
Shown at Sakura Collection 2018 under the theme “Beautiful Contrasts”, Spectrum has impressed fashion lovers with beautiful images, colors and music using 3D Laser Mapping technology.

The collection, which intermingled the cultural traits of Vietnam and Japan, showed the beauty of the two cultures and reflected an interactive world with a harmony between tradition and modernity, and between the past and the future.
