Символическая модель цвета вьетнамского национального костюма аозай: исторические предпосылки и толкования
This piece will be attempting to analyse the symbolism behind the colour patterns of the Vietnamese national garment áo dài, as well as to establish and provide context to the main characteristics and tendencies of the change which this aspect of life and customs of the Vietnamese has undergone throughout its rich history. The symbolism of the colour patterns will be researched within the framework of the Vietnamese language and linguistics as well as from the perspective of the sociohistorical and cultural criticism.
The main point of interest and the groundwork of the research will be the female national garment as it has experienced a far more significant development process than its male counterpart. The female national costume also enjoys a much broader range of use in today's everyday life in Vietnam.
