The "Ngũ thân" ao dai is an ancient outfit that has been used daily by Vietnamese people. During the Nguyen Dynasty, this costume was considered the National Costume of Vietnam. Due to historical circumstances, the traditional "Ngũ thân" Ao Dai has experienced ups and downs and changes. There was a time when this outfit was almost absent in life. Recently, along with Thua Thien Hue province, artisans and designers throughout the country have been preserving and restoring the "Ngũ thân" Ao Dai, bringing these costumes into contemporary life, imbued with Vietnamese cultural identity.

As a skilled artist and designer in the field of Ao Dai and fashion, Pham Van Tuyen (Nam Tuyen) always strives to research and preserve and promote the value of traditional "Ngũ thân" Ao Dai. In the past time, Nam Tuyen Ao Dai brand has launched to thedomestically and internationally public many Ao Dai collections, which are well received and appreciated by the public. From traditional "Ngũ thân" Ao dai to fashionable and modern Ao dai collections, Bam Tuyen Ao Dai always adheres to traditional aesthetic values in design and consumer orientation. Honoring Vietnamese dignity and integrating into life is a goal that Ao Dai Nam Tuyen always aims for.

The collection of "Trở về Cố đô 2" was launched this time, although there is an intertwining of flight and nobility of modern fashion art, the beauty of the traditional five-body Ao Dai is still exploited by artisan and designer Pham Van Tuyen.
