S DESIGNER HOUSE BY DESIGNER LE TRAN DAC NGOC The first kidswear brand from VIETNAM at THAILAND FASHION WEEK. He opened Thailand Fashion Week AW22-23 with 16 Vietnamese child models. Not only with their bright appearance and professional demeanour, but these young models also have a lot of experience in “fighting” at many major domestic and international catwalks. 16 names with 16 personality colours wearing unique designs will bring impressive performances on the THAILAND FASHION WEEK AW22-23 runway. These 16 child models will perform a collection called “Vietnamese sounds and colours of 5 continents” which is the interference between traditional national elements and contemporary breath, between Vietnamese culture and countries across 5 continents. The collection carries a distinct design philosophy, and a profound fashion story and conveys a meaningful humanistic message. NICOLE SANTOS X DOMINIQUE ATELIER – HAUTE COUTURE & FEMME “SPALLE ROSSE” HAUTE-COUTURE collection by Designer Nicole Santos. One of the major signature details we specialized in DOMINIQUE Atelier and NICOLE SANTOS Couture aside from its very out-of-the-box, modern and unconventional design is the focus on intricate gown trains and shoulder features. Designer Nicole Santos experimented with how she can manipulate certain types of fabrics to be able to get the results she wanted for each design for this collection. Hence, the “Spalle Rosse” collection was put together. In Italian, “Spalle” means shoulders and “Rosse” means red. This Haute-Couture AW22-23 collection is greatly inspired by the vast variety of rose and flower petals, its shapes and colour palettes, and the movement it does when it is flown in the air. We infused these elements into each design of we have for “Spalle Rosse” by creating shoulder and gown train features that are exquisitely fashioned for a modern and unique woman.

IVAN TRAN Who has succeeded as a top designer in Vietnam. Compilation with many celebrities in Viet Nam. Come to Thailand Fashion Week, He would like to send off his clothes to all of you of his newest collection “Trúc – Bamboo”. It’s been quite a while since Ivan released a collection name with a rather short name, but deep in it is a forest of Ivan’s thoughts. Bamboo is a kind of tree that people think of as affirmative, strong, and also very flexible in the wind when it comes to people. If it is related to Ivan’s fashion or personality, it can be said to be almost the same, sometimes thorny, strong, somewhere flexible and versatile. Versatile here is that people find it very applicable in any place.
