|Houston, TX - August 31, 2011 - Highly acclaimed Houston-based fashion designer Danny Nguyen will debut his newest collection at his own "Fall/Winter Grand Fashion Show" in Houston at 7:00 p.m. Friday, September 23, 2011. The show will be held at the Momentum Mini in Southwest Houston.|
A native of Vietnam, Nguyen began his journey in fashion design at the very young age of ten, learning and assisting with his mother's alteration shop. In pursuit of his own ambitions to become a designer, Nguyen has since moved to the United States and opened his own design and tailoring shop, Danny Nguyen Couture.
Nguyen's accolades include first place in Threads Magazine's Make It With Wool contest, and first place at Fashion Group International's Career Day. He has also participated in numerous charity events including the Asian Chamber of Commerce, the Le Hoang Foundation, and the Asian Pacific American Heritage Association.
The inspiration for Nguyen's latest collection is based on the Caribbean, albeit not the sunny and tranquil version that is often portrayed. Nguyen's show will instead be themed around the disaster and destruction of the dark seas, which he describes as "the beauty within destruction." The elements that inspired him include patterns of broken leaves, and the darker colors and textures of. This collection will be Nguyen's sixth to debut.
We'll have a Special guest, Toby Markham as Captain Jack Sparrow set to emcee the event. About 300 attendees are expected and complimentary cocktails and hors d'oeuvres will be served.
