Here are my impressions from yesterday's Fashion & Stars Fashion show. I was invited by two friends who presented their F/W collections and I thought it was a good chance to catch up with what's going on in Vietnam's fashion scene right now after having been away for over two months !
If I had to make a trend analysis then I'd say that this F/W camel will be the hippest colour in HCMC.

COCOSIN. I'm friends with one of the founders and really treasure this brand because thanks to them I was actually able to come to Vietnam. The second Cocosin store used to be next to mine, at 3A Ton Duc Thang, and Yen, co-founder, invited me to share the space with Cocosin while I was still in Germany. On Nov 19th, they will open a new flagship store on Ham Nghi, so if you love this collection with tassels, pleat and bold prints, you should definitely come !

Nosbyn is going for a playful French chic this season. While some of the outfits were a tad too playful for me, but will definitely appeal to a younger audience, I loved the more minimal and causual outfits with the shiny skirts. I definitely need to have those in my closet.
I definitely need to have those in my closet. Nosbyn is a brand that manages so well to reach out to all customer age groups. In this F/W collection there is definitely something for everyone. Whether you like eggs on your shirt or want to look professional for a job interview.
Popbirdy oh Popbirdy. This must be my favourite Popbirdy collection so far ! It's playful with the ribbons but laid-back and cool at the same time. I've been knowing the producer, chi Hanh for four or five years and I kind of feel proud seeing her work on the runway because I know all the things she has been through and how hard she worked on this. A lot more people should know about Popbirdy, the style is really cool, so even as an individual does this brand get all my support !
