Naythan Nhat Hai Doan

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

Frankly, when I first started to go to fashion school, I just wanted to be famous. I didn’t really know any designers, models, or history of fashion. However, as my journey went on, I realized that I am very good at this. I love to translate my ideas from 2D sketches into 3D garments. I also love exploring the history of the fashion industry and how the course of history impacted clothing and vice versa. My ultimate goal is to become a menswear designer. Maybe I am a narcissist, because I only make clothes that look good on me. I am my target customer. I love to experiment with architectural geometrical shapes, huge silhouettes with details that are a little bit risqué, kinky, and rebellious. Many great designers inspire me, but my idols are Martin Margiela and Thierry Mugler. I will “work hard until my idols become my rivals.”
