Dallas Designer You Should Know: Khanh Nguyen

Her clothes are a hit with Hollywood celebs and Dallas fashionistas alike.

What you wear speaks volumes about who you are (or sometimes to who you want to be). If the image you want to portray to the world is elegant, confident, sexy and in control of your surroundings, then Nha Khanh is a brand that should be hanging in your closet. Her frocks have adorned some of Hollywood’s most fashionable influencers, such as Kim and Kourtney Kardashian, Brooklyn Decker, Guliana Rancic, Catt Sadler and Kelly Osbourne. The company offers seasonal “advanced contemporary” Ready-to-Wear, a custom Atelier collection offering one-of-a-kind custom pieces and a bridal line.

Khanh Nguyen migrated from Hue Vietnam to Dallas, Texas, with her family at the age of 12. By 2010, this designer had found her voice and was executing her artistic vision with the launch of her line. Her designs are feminine without being prissy, structured but not too hard. “Nha” in Vietnamese is a feminine word implying “light and elegance,” whereas “Khanh” is a masculine word, meaning “victory and celebration.” The fusion of the words creates a  balance of unison between feminine and masculine that matches Nguyen’s design aesthetic. Dallas socialites and fashion power players are already clamoring for her latest looks.

So what can we expect from her fall collection?

“The fall collection is inspired by mostly nature: crystals and minerals of the earth and stars in the galaxy, which we translated into our printed fabrics,” says Khanh Nguyen. “Our vibrant yet mysterious prints added a twist to our modern glamour styles of this season’s collection. You’ll find many modern-classic silhouettes, such as A-line dresses with structured design details, and of course our signature lace.”
