A Vietnam Bias

Inspired by my father’s immigrant journey to America after escaping the Vietnam War at 14 years old, A Vietnam Bias is a five-look pre-spring collection. This semester-long design collection was made utilizing my own old denim jeans from high school, which were repurposed by redyeing and rebleaching to create a new, abstract wash. My collection also showcases the use of NoSo technology to create a new fabric with reused denim that results in a contemporary silhouette, minimizing seams and machine stitching.
