FSF Scholar Ninh Nguyen Presents Ninh Collection SS ’12

Ninh Nguyen, Creative Director of the NINH Collection, chats about his nautically-inspired SS ’12 Collection!

What was your inspiration for the Spring / Summer  ’12 collection?

For NINH Collection Spring 2012, we wanted to incorporate a modern nautical theme with intricate detailing and still keeping a hint of military concept from our previous collection alive. Sailor outfits are known to be navy and white, so we used a lot of navy fabrics but instead of using white, we decided that grey would compliment the blue hue better. White would have been too flashy and “clean.”

Where will we be able to buy our favorite pieces?

We have produced the Fall 2011 line and they will be available on www.NINH.co by November, just in time for the Winter and holiday season! The market and how NINH Collection sells will determine which pieces from our Spring 2012 will go into production.

See anything inspirational on the SS runway?  

Fashion recycles from season to season and trends usually dissipate slowly once it sells to the public. I don’t usually follow trends because it becomes over-rated. I like to design based on my aesthetic and whatever I get inspired by. The Spring 2012 shows in Paris and Milan had amazing pieces which always gives me motivation to design beautifully crafted clothes and to use amazing fabric.
