Does anyone have pictures of short-sleeve or sleeveless ao dais? When I left Vietnam, they were being introduced to the market and they simply looked amazing!

Guuuuuuuuuaaaaaaaaauuuuuuuu Friends¡

The only thing I can tell you is WHAT BEAUTIFULL DRESSES YOU SHOW ME.

In fact I think many designers take ideas of the traditional clothes from different countries.
I respect all the ideas, include what people say about chatolics, my phater are chatolic, I´m a combination of different belivings, my mother and my sister were chatolic and I think that if someone feel confortable in any kind of clothe it is good. The fashion must not to be a obstacle to anithing, clothes no mean -for me- the escense of a woman, the escense is into your heart.
