Photographer's Note

For once, I was having the appropriate lens mounted on the camera when I saw this lady coming accross the street, in order to catch her in the beautiful setting next to Phuoc An river.

Her typical dress, called ao dai, is a silk tunic worn over pants, tightly fit around the upper torso to emphasize bust and curves.

Although the dress covers the entire body, it is thought to be provocative, especially when it is made of thin fabric. It covers everything, but hides nothing, as a vietnamese saying goes.

The dress must be individually fitted and usually requires several weeks for a tailor to complete.
