Scenes from Thai Nguyen Fashion ShowTuesday, March 15, 2011
Spent last Saturday at Concept LA Fashion Week previewing Thai Nguyen Couture's Fall ready-to-wear line titled "The Last Falling Leaf." For those of you who don't know this Little Saigon celebrity, he was first runner-up on Bravo's "Launch My Line" and currently an in-demand stylist to the Vietnamese Westminster community, fabricating couture gowns for entertainment songstresses (aka Paris by Night peeps), fashioning looks for their red-carpet debuts, and occasionally dressing pageant queens on and off the runway.
I'm quite embarrassed to admit that I have never heard of Thai before my gf Annie (having previously sought his skeelos for a collaboration) mentioned him to me, so I was delighted to attend this sartorial extravaganza to fulfill my discerning curiosity while hobnobbing with Bolsa's pseudo-elite.
Armed with my Nikon and the nearby bff, here's bringing you a sneak peek into the rising star of fashion's newest couturier: Thai Nguyen's Fall/Winter 2011 Collection: "Chiếc Lá Cuối Cùng" a humble homage to his Vietnamese roots and resident SoCal community...Enjoy!
Located in the same gallery as a rotating art show...Pretty trippy if you ask me...
