Celebrity Fashion Designer Quynh Paris' Line is an Exotic Mix of East and West
By Vida Ghaffari
I had the opportunity to check out Quynh Paris' vibrant designs at her Reef LA tent show at Style Fashion Week. Her designs are a mix of East meets West. Her line is a nod to her exotic Vietnamese heritage and also modern and futuristic. A graduate of the Mod’Art International fashion school in Paris, designer Quynh Nhu Nguyen launched her couture collection in Paris in 2011. Quynh Paris couture collections have been showcased in runway shows in Paris, Saigon, and Los Angeles, each season, since the 2011 launch. Each season, the couture collections explore a new theme, as she lets her multi-cultural artistic creativity express itself through volume, three-dimensional shapes, fluid movement, rich colors and intricate details.
Quynh Paris couture pieces have been worn by numerous Miss Vietnam winners and contestants, top models, international celebrities, and has been featured in numerous fashion editiorials in Vietnam and Europe. Also an accomplished violinist, painter, dancer, and gymnast, Quynh is a graduate of the HCM Academy of Music, and has a university diploma in Economics and Foreign Languages. Quynh lives a life steeped in music and the arts, as she constantly bridges East and West, old and new cultures, dividing her time between Los Angeles, Paris, and Vietnam. "Since I'm an artist, I like to show that aesthetic in my designs. I use mixed materials, lots of vibrant color, shadow and curves in my pieces," said Quynh. "Having Quynh Paris showing with us is such a great experience as she is a true artist and her talent really shines through in her pieces," said Veronica Kerzner, founder and President of Style Fashion Week.
