NINH Collection is for the modest and confident, the intellectual and cultured, the passionate and open-minded – a modern-day Renaissance man. Well-groomed and open-minded, has proper etiquette and respects others – the quintessential gentleman.

Designer NINH NGUYEN was born and raised in Paris, France, grew up in Texas where he studied medicine and psychology, and currently resides and works from his studio in NYC. He debuted his first collection during New York Fashion Week in February of 2011 [image above], and ever since, has traveled around the nation showcasing his collection in many fashion shows and events.

He has worked with countless photographers (Cecilie Harris, Duc Nguyen, Jon Malinowski, Huy Khiem, just to name a few), stylists, models and make-up artists on many Fashion editorials.

He has also collaborated with different artists (graphic artists, painters and illustrators) on projects for Fashion Week. An artwork from SaetByul Rachel Shin for NINH Collection, below. For a closer look at all the projects that he has done, click here.

NINH Collection has been featured in magazines and fashion blogs such as NYLON Guys, The Fashionisto, Fashion Indie, Male Mode, Culture Shoq, Men’s Fashion by Francesco, My Portis Wasp Says, Oh La La Mag, Morphoman, The Fashion Experience, Syriously in Fashion, Design Scene and many more!

The Fashion Institute of Technology presented their Fashion & Finance Forum to discuss how the fashion related industries and financial services can work together to boost the economy of NYC and strengthen the initiatives in fashion economic development. Ninh Nguyen took part on the panelist alongside  Paula Sutter (President of Diane von Furstenberg).

On his spare time, Ninh also designs belts and handbags [picture above], and is currently working on a bow-tie line under the name Mad Handsome.

NINH Collection has been seen on the hit reality show The A-List: New York and worn by Hok from Quest Crew at the VMA’s. The Fall 2012 is on limited quantity and can be purchased here.

NINH NGUYEN was born and raised in Paris, France, and currently works from his studio in New York City. He is a two-time scholar of the YMA Fashion Scholarship Fund and has won Best Menswear for the Arts of Fashion Competition. He graduated from the prestigious Fashion Institute of Technology and debuted his first collection during NYFW in February of 2011. He is the men’s fashion blogger for Another Men’s Blog and the designer behind the bow-tie line Mad Handsome.

“Dressing is a way of life,” said Yves St. Laurent. Dressing well has become his life. Even though he has always had a keen sense of style, and unlike many who claim to be born to design, his epiphany only came later in life when he realized that he has always set trends with a profound love and respect for fashion.

Like Giorgio Armani, he studied biology. It gave him knowledge of the human anatomy, allowing him to fit and understand better the proportions of the male figure. His study of psychology combined with his flawless assimilation of the Vietnamese, French, and American cultures and languages will translate to a rapid and thorough understanding of his target market. “I’ll spot and generate trends and create more universally successful designs that answer the needs and wants of my customers.”

To pursue his dream instead of walking the established path denotes a deep understanding of who he is, of what it takes to succeed, and of his absolute affection to his vocation. It took courage, determination, and dedication to devote himself to this passionate obsession which has destined to become his life. He echoes Issey Miyake: “Design is not for philosophy — it’s for life.”

Men’s fashion is growing at a fast rate with leading designers racing to add lines to their ever-growing labels. It has become the focus for innovation and artistic style with sustainability and financial investment. Today’s man is more style-conscious than ever, and more willing to update and experiment with their wardrobe. This opens up new doors, giving designers more freedom to express their creativity.

Ninh’s design philosophy has an eclectic approach: it combines the simplicity, traditional fit of London, the contemporary and fresh style of Japan, and the chic mode of Korea. “Through my designs and creativity, I want to inspire and promote new talents, thus paraphrasing Ralph Lauren — I don’t just design clothes. I design and build dreams.”

NINH Collection is for the modest and confident, the intellectual and cultured, the passionate and open-minded – a modern-day Renaissance man. Well-groomed and open-minded, has proper etiquette and respects others – the quintessential gentleman.

Dress without taste and they will remember the clothes. Dress with taste and they will remember the man.”
