“My show is a gift to my fans,” said 36-year-old Cuong, a graduate of the Ecole Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienme.
Cuong graduated from the Hanoi University of Industrial Fine Arts in 2003. He then moved to Paris where he lived for five years to develop his dreams in fashion design.
In 2007, he worked as a trainee for Christian Dior where he improved both his love and skills in design and catwalk.
One year later, he returned home and made his debut in HCM City. His collections of elegant and eye-catching designs dazzled audiences at the first look.
He has participated in several fashion events, such as Dep (Beauty) Fashion Show and Vietnam Fashion Week and worked for TV shows such as Project Runway Vietnam and Vietnam’s Next Top Model, as well as with top artists and fashion icons.
He owns three shops in HCM City and Hanoi, offering two collections every season costing from 2 million VND (90 USD) to more than 22 million VND (2,000 USD) per item.
The Muse 2 will take place at 7pm on December 30 at the Saigon Exhibition and Convention Centre (SECC) on 799 Nguyen Van Linh street, district 7.
