Admire the unique fashion of different ethnic groups through
"54 Vietnamese Ethnicities"

In the formation and development history of 54 ethnic groups, their distinct identities contribute to the diversity within the unity of Vietnamese culture. Over the centuries, these communities have bonded and united to build the nation.

Inspired by national pride and the solidarity among fellow countrymen, artist Nemoo created the "54 Vietnamese Ethnicities" project. The artist chose the Hàng Trống painting style, a traditional folk art that clearly showcases Vietnamese characteristics through its soft features and delicate shapes.

Hát Xẩm originated as a means of livelihood on the streets for visually impaired individuals. Sân Khấu Dù Kê is a blend of singing, dancing, music, martial arts, costumes, makeup, painting, and cuisine, reflecting the unique characteristics of the Khmer people in the southern region. Each distinctive element of these art forms, such as the artists, costumes, and stages, is depicted through eye-catching illustrations, harmonious colors, and carefully selected information to make it easy to understand and reference.

"Tinh Hoa Âm Sắc" is a book dedicated to preserving the traditional and spiritual values that previous generations have painstakingly created and maintained to this day. Illustrated by artist Kim Ngân, "Tinh Hoa Âm Sắc" brings the story of Vietnam's long-standing traditional art forms such as Hát Chèo, Tuồng, Ca Trù, and Cải Lương.

The Essence of Vietnam's Sounds

Each painting is a profile picture of an ethnic group, highlighting unique fashion traits. For example, the Tày girl wears a jacket dyed with indigo plant water, featuring a deep, steadfast blue with the fragrance of the mountains and forests.
