During the show, which was held in Thu Duc City, part of Ho Chi Minh City, over two weeks ago, models donned ao yem, a traditional Vietnamese bodice, and daring ao dai, a traditional Vietnamese costume.
The show organizer will face sanctions for violating administrative procedures and disseminating offensive images online, according to Hanh.
The angry backlash against the fashion show after images and clips featuring models wearing provocative clothes dispersed on social media prompted authorities in the city to launch a probe into the show and adopt suitable sanctions against it.
