Designer Phan Thi Phung: I want to honor the beauty woman
Edited from: Fashion & Passion. The interview the designer introducing her new collection was broadcasted on VTV3 - Vietnam Television Station
Suddenly missing while Angel Phan has been broadcasted almost all fashion shows on television nationwide, this brandname mistress – the designer Phan Thi Phung – has surprisingly been back with fully creative, novel, and western-style collections.
In fact, at the “disappear” time, I was very busy: I received many invitation from fashion program, and there is the number of customer for Angel Phan its self… but at that time, I decided to leave attending shows aside temporary, and spent 1 year travelling was been many places, especially US to research and study new tailoring techniques, styles, and materials for Angel Phan.
After a traveling year was been many places and spending most time studying in US, what did you learn to contribute to Vietnamese Fashion Industry in general and to Angel Phan in particular?
I have studied and learnt many new things: new clothing materials, and 4D tailoring technique.
Could you tell more about the 4D tailoring technique? How can you share you idea to your tailors in order to make a product as your design?
Experienced designers must be good at cutting and sewing. Therefore, they will know how to do with every part of a cloth when designing. Then, they will teach their partners. Since a tailor is merely a tailor, the designer has take responsibility to create a cloth ‘a soul’. It’s the most important.
Fashion is to make everyone beautiful
After gaining more knowledge about fashion industry oversea, Angel Phan products have had some changes. Could you tell more about these changes?
Passion and determination to live for fashion by scrupulously and artistically hand-made products, is the price of Angle Phan too high for fashion lover in Vietnam?
Actually, the first thing Angel Phan thinks about when operating fashion business is to study its target customers, and its aimed market. Finally, Angle Phan will select to learn, and research to propose products for successful businesswomen. When setting this objective, Angle Phan has founded a system to control its goal, control the product quality and trend suitable to target customers, and highly concentrate on the products that Angel Phan decided to pursuit. However, those things much meet customers’ need as well as their ability to pay.
This it what I always think of. In my opinion, a charming and attractive woman is sexy, confident, beautiful, and intelligent and she always knows how to show her sophistication. Angel Phan wants to make the most beautiful clothes that bring out a woman value.
A mysterious woman
You always wish to make women beautiful, and there are confidence, charming, and attraction from you. Would you please share your own secret to stay beautiful? With clothes, what color do you prefer most?
Well, I don’t have many secret. I do not wear make-up in daily life. I often live naturally and simply. Only attending parties or fashion shows, I wear some make-up to make my own style. I often use 3 colors: white, red, and black most. These are 3 basic colors that can combine with other colors. And I want to me a creative woman with some mystery (smile).
In work, you have passion and determination to pursuit your dream until the end. Angel Phan has been very successful. How about your love life?
I have fallen in love twice and both have failed. However, I always appreciate them since they make me stronger and more grown-up. I am thankful to the man for loving me. When I failed in love, when it’s gone, I thank him for coming to me and love me, for bring about beautiful moment, and making my life more interesting, and more colorful.
Supposedly, you would meet your ideal love while you are very successful in your career. What would you choose, love or your career?
And desire to reach out
Besides Angel Phan, I know that you are going to establish another brand name for the international market. What is it? What is the market you are aiming for? And why do you daringly decide it whereas the international fashion industry has developed?
I have nurtured this dream for two years. Last time, I have travelel to many places to learn new knowledge in the fashion industry so that I can not only develop Angel Phan but also be able to establish a new brand with more high-raking than Angel Phan, whose name is original from Italy – Vangelis. In the short tearm, I intend to set up an office in Los Angeles (USA). Although the international fashion industry has developed, I have researched and invested in Vangelis for foreign customers. I know it will be a great challenge and pressure. Thus, I have to work seriously more and more, I have to orient the market segment and customer which I am aiming to. I have to be expert in tailoring technique and materiala as well.
Are you influenced by any international designer?
I have watched many fashion shows, and products of a lot of designer and I live the fashion style of Versace and Valentino most.
I am often inspired by the life around me, by things happening in daily life. For example, I am desiging a collection which calls environment protection. News has recently broadcasted our earth has been heating up, earthquake, and natural disasters took place in many places… With that collection, I would like to bring a message to everbody that we should protect the earth, environment and fututure together. To make this message become pratical meaningful, I use materials close to the nature and can be recycled after used. Moreover, the design is meticulously paid attention so that it can bring the message to everyone can perceive.
Thank you for your sharing. I hope with your continuously passion and effort, you will be supported by audiences and customers.
