Originally from Hue (the ancient capital city of Vietnam) Khanh Shyna is well known for royal court inspired Ao Dai collections. He spent months studying the intricate details of the architecture of inner city of Hue. Khanh Shyna is a master of combining the royal court design with modern colours using luxurious fabric to create exquisite Ao Dai. He is admired by many for his use of traditional material and commitment to preserve traditional weaving craft. His elegant and sophisticated designs are greatly appreciated by all women for their wonderful fit.
In his effort to share his passion for Ao Dai and Vietnamese culture, Khanh Shyna traveled all over the world and took part in many high-caliber fashion shows. His latest collaboration was with Ao Dai Canada (ADC) for Thoi Bao Charity Concert in Toronto on June 30, 2018. The highly anticipated fashion show went on smoothly thanks to weeks of planning and preparation of more than 30 volunteers and ADC members who worked tiredlessly to ensure the show’s success.
In support of raising awareness against human trafficking and help children at risk, ADC will present The Pearl of the Far East-Ao Dai and Cultural show and Gala on November 10, 2018 at the Le Chateau de Jardin from 6:00PM to 12AM. To the delight of Ao Dai lovers, ADC will be hosting Khanh Shyna once again along with other designers for this spectacular show. For more info, please contact www.aodaicanada.org
