With over 450 guests, NAMI was one of the highest attended shows for Concept Fashion Week this season. Sarah Nami Ahn’s debut runway show in Los Angeles surely attracted a lot of attention and it’s not surprising to see why. Her collection encompasses the current and forthcoming trends while incorporating her own unique taste, making her one of the top emerging designers.
This past weekend, Thai Nguyen had his debut runway fashion show at Concept Los Angeles Fashion Week to showcase his Fall/Winter 2011 collection: The Last Falling Leaf. Connecting back to his Vietnamese roots, he draws inspiration from a Vietnamese song to create this collection that consists of 35 dresses. For this collection, he wanted to celebrate the elegant body of a woman in a variety of soft, flowing dresses that are suitable for different occasions, from casual day wear to fancy red carpet events. And his collection isn’t short on color either; it is created using silk materials in muted tones of cream, sienna, teal, royal blue, and ruby red. (Stay tuned for a post-show review!)
