Vietnam Designer House was established by the Viet Mode Company to promote Vietnamese design talent by providing space for young designers to display and sell their creations.
Its target is to connect Vietnam’s fashion design industry with countries already established in the international world of fashion like France, Italy, United Kingdom, United States and Japan. It seeks to provide updated news and technology in fashion as well as an opportunity and a platform to develop the skills of designers in Vietnam.
