Hand Painted Silk From Hanoi, Vietnam.
I’ve been living in these outfits since I got home. I found these pieces in a small boutique shop in Hanoi, Vietnam sometime at end of Jan. The hand painted silk top & purple 2 piece both have traditional Mandarin collars and knot button fastenings. Although they are not second hand items, it’s pretty safe to say they are neither mass produced. The brand is named Big Thu, by D&C silk art - ‘Thu Duong wanted to emphasise on Asian brocade elements incorporating European styled design, as well as traditional Chinese evening gowns’.
Mandalay, Myanmar and Tokyo, Japan.
