It was the perfect fusion of East meets West, when acclaimed international fashion designer Quynh Paris debuted her gorgeous new collection at the prestigious Mercedes Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center in New York City. This was her first time that she ever had a show there and not only that, but she also was the headliner of this year’s show on opening night of New York Fashion Week.
“Ha Phuong,” the Vietnamese Angelina Jolie, was a runway model at this show and a big supporter of Quynh and her artistic talents and brought her superstar glamour to the event.
Quynh’s line this season is reminiscent of many things, namely nature. “I’m inspired by nature and these designs convey how much this season means to me,” said Quynh. “I want a line this season that really showcased femininity. For my Fall/Winter collection named ‘Passion,’ I wanted the warm and breezy feel of spring and summer, that’s why there isn’t so much of black and grey, the usual colors associated with winter, but also bright colors such as blue, yellow, red etc.”
She added,” In this collection, I have tops, pants, skirts and dresses that are really ready-to-wear. For my first fashion show in NY, I made the evening gowns a little bit couture. Above all, I want to bring design into our daily lives.” Otherwise her popular line is usually a certain style. What many fashionistas and tastemakers call the typically cool Quynh Paris style; asymmetric, structured, 3D, artistic, romantic yet oh so modern.
Quynh is a globetrotter. A Switzerland national that is originally from Vietnam, she graduated from Mod’ Art International Fashion School in Paris, the epicenter of fashion, and has already showcased her memorable collections such varied cities as Paris, Saigon, Los Angeles, and now New York City.
Ever the artist, Quynh is also an accomplished painter, dancer and violinist before becoming a fashion designer, and she incorporates her love of these art forms in her stylish couture collections with volume, asymmetric constructions, 3D sculpture structures that have a life of their own, as well as fluid movements, painting and her use of rich colors and intricate details.
She is Fashion Asia’s 2013 Top 5 fashion designer in haute couture. Quynh’s couture pieces have been worn by numerous pageant contest winners and contestants, top models and international celebrities. She has even been a judge herself at fashion graduation shows, fashion design or pageant contacts, particularly Miss Earth Pageant.
Recently she has been the exclusive costume designer of Mozart’s renowned opera “The Magic Flute” where she let her multicultural artistic creativity express itself.
Loving arts in all forms, she is about to be the exclusive costume designer for an eclectic Circus – Art performance show and once again for the opera “Carmen”.
