Born in South Vietnam to parents who owned a private sewing school, you could say that Fashion Design is in Thai Nguyen’s blood. Thai and his family immigrated to the US in 1993 and Thai followed his design dream by attending the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Los Angeles.
After graduating in 2002, Thai Nguyen earned the title of Associate Designer for BCBG Max Azria before going out on his own. He quickly became the designer of choice for the Vietnamese entertainment industry and went on to be a finalist on Bravo's Launch My Line.
With a showroom and storefront in Orange County, CA, Thai Nguyen Couture offers evening gowns, cocktail dresses, Couture Bridal Gowns, ao dai (traditional Vietnamese gowns), and a ready to wear line, all proudly made in the United States.
