“Aadya Collection” was showcased at the Center of Hmong Arts and Talent’s Fresh Tradition Fashion Show Season 12.   The name “Aadya” is rooted in Sanskrit. It means the power that gave rise to the five elements and five senses. This collection is inspired by the four elements (Earth, Air, Water, Fire), "Avatar: The Last Airbender", women empowerment and Greek mythology style. Each garment represents the four elements and the last garment is the "Avatar" and the challenging garment piece that includes all five tradition Hmong fabrics.
