The Tailor

by Kay Nguyễn


The re-enactment of the traditional dress (ao dai) era in 1960s, Saigon, thought to be the heyday of traditional Vietnamese costumes. Interwoven into that transformation in fashion and style of the ao dai in modern times which told through the story of the character named Miss Ba (Cô Ba). Audiences will also see somewhere the image of the 60s, 70s full of honest women. An image of Saigon in the past, gentle and steeped in contrast to the rush of a dynamic city will be described by fashion, namely the traditional dress in Vietnam. All of them are cleverly nested in the story between two families, between mothers and daughters, between a tailor and a fabric shop filled with dramatic rage.
