Brand[edit]

Phuong My S/S 2014 collection

The signature silhouettes of Phuong My are wasp waist that accentuates women’s hour glass figure with cocoon shape in the lower parts of dresses. This concept is inspired by the beliefs and ideologies of the Orient beauty in the East world.[7] Orient beauty has long been a source of inspiration for Phuong My, drawn to the courage and strength often hidden in the delicate beauty of Asian women.[8] The fabrics for Phuong My collections are manufactured overseas but the manufacturing processes are done in Vietnam. Refusing to be limited to certain available fabric choices, Phuong My was adamant about conveying luxury by outsourcing materials from partners in Paris, Milan, Hong Kong and Tokyo.[9]

Besides, Phuong My designs are also featured in American and European magazines including The New York Times, Vogue (magazine), British Vogue, Vogue Russia, Vogue Italia, Collezioni Italia and Harper's bazaar China.[2] In 2014, NowFashion.com named Phuong My as one of Asia's 15 potential brands.[10] The product brands have been personified by fashion models and actresses, including Coco Rocha, Julia Michaels, Betty Gabriel, Bellamy Young, Susan Kelechi Watson, Mariana Klaveno and Miss Universe Catriona Gray.[11]
