Last year, Trang was appointed as President of Council of ASEAN Fashion Designers (CAFD). In 2018, Vietnamese fashion designer Minh Hanh received this medal of Knight of the Order of the Star of Italy from the Italian government for her contributions to deepening ties between Vietnam and Italy and promoting Italian fashion and culture in Vietnam. The Knight of the Order of the Star of Italian Solidarity is awarded by the Foreign Minister of Italy under the Decree of the Italian President for Italians and foreign nationals residing outside Italy, who have significantly contributed to the prestige of Italy by way of promoting Italian culture and language and by way of any voluntary activity or humanitarian service that enhances the cordial relations that the Italian community enjoys in the world.
