THREE WORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOUR BRAND?

Simplicity, elegance, and minimal in design.
 

HOW DOES YOUR HOMETOWN INFLUENCE YOUR DESIGNS?

GIA STUDIOS is a brand created from the traditional beauty of Vietnam and its people; from the elegant look of Indochina to the contemporary features of modern day. Vietnamese culture is the soul of the brand and Vietnamese women are the inspiration for the brand’s timeless designs. Each piece is a delicate blend of two Eurasian cultures, the glamour of contemporary Indochina is harmoniously combined with traditional Vietnamese costumes. All our products are designed and crafted in Vietnam.
 
“GIA STUDIOS is the home for local
artisans to create and experience the
art of contemporary fashion, where
traditional Vietnamese craftsmanship
intersects with modern design.”
 
WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO LAUNCH A FASHION BRAND?

My life mission to make women feel beautiful. When women are confident, they are more able to follow their passions and achieve the success they want. My grandfather was a fashion designer, my mother is too. They both owned a tailoring shop and they made dresses for people in the neighborhood. I grew up seeing my mother work very hard.
