Tuyen Tran wins a 2015 Vilcek Prize
The Luxonomist

Tuyen Tran was picked as the winner of a Creative Promise Prize in Fashion for designs that fuse environmental awareness and everyday functionality with a modern, minimal aesthetic.  Tran is a fashion designer and a recent graduate of Parsons School of Design at the New School, earning a BFA in Fashion Design.

She views fashion as a form of functional product design: enabling movement, adapting to different environments, and potentially enhancing the wearer’s happiness. Building on her strong foundation of menswear tailoring techniques, Tran’s graduate collection of womenswear perfected a capsule wardrobe of functional garments, which could be worn and layered in numerous ways; it was nominated for the Parsons Designer of the Year award.
