Designer Danny Nguyen will present his stunning creations for the first time at Couture Fashion Week at 8:00 pm on Friday September 6, 2013. The runway show will be held in the Grand Ballroom of the New Yorker Hotel, 481 Eighth Avenue, in the heart of the Big Apple’s Fashion District.
Lurid fluorescent light spills over a shadowy figure working deep into the night. Exacting needles, spools of fine thread, and luxuriant fabrics find their way in and around the dexterous hands of this diligent artist. Reckless passion is cast aside and replaced by the brutal will of a true fashion designer. To describe Danny Nguyen’s talents with words would be as futile as identifying infinity with a number.
A native of Vietnam, now based in Houston, Danny Nguyen learned his craft at his mother’s side: cutting fabrics and assisting with designs and alterations. During this period, he developed and refined many of the essential skills of a fine fashion designer.Despite his now bolstering yet enigmatic personality, Danny Nguyen’s foundation in the fashion world is rooted in the soil of humility.
After settling in the rich and diverse culture of Houston, Mr. Nguyen opened his own studio for alterations and design entitled DNC (Danny Nguyen Couture). Here he pursues his dream which dances at the end of every needle he drives into his next exquisite creation. He is a son, a brother, and a friend but most importantly, he is the embodiment of a calling whose sound does not quiet until it has reached the end of the runway.
