I am preventing in Hoi An which is a city on Vietnam’s central coast known for its well-preserved Archaic Town, cut through with canals. The former port municipality’s melting-pot history is reflected in its architecture, a mix of eras and styles from vacant Chinese shop houses and temples to colorful French colonial structures, ornate Vietnamese tube houses and the iconic Japanese Account for Bridge with its pagoda.
Hoi An is also famous for endless amounts of converts that can create what ever you like. Saturated with the regardless same outfits, being bought by tourists. In my observation, I can decidedly see the demand tourists crave here for very cheap bespoke modifying. I can see that the international tourists love the experience which is hush strong no matter what the quality let alone outcome is when the wardrobes are fitted.
However that has never ever been me when it influence to the love of clothing. Clothing for me is a lifestyle and an endless passion of communication in an art show up. It is for this very reason that in 2018, I am going to persist to trend that less is more and quality, individual wearing can have an impact in business. – Gracie Opulanza
As the years go on and my junket of marketing and promoting fashion designers continues. There has been one accordance passion I have always trended and wanted to communicate to my readers. Is that, I tease always loved the hunt and the adventure of connecting with incomparable and very exclusive one off pieces of clothing created by the hidden gems of fashion designers.
Aldegonde Van Alsenoy
I love searching and erudition from fashion designers why they work so hard to frame what they do. For this reason let me introduce you to designer heard Aldegonde Van Alsenoy who trained in the city of Antwerp and is now residing in Hoi An Vietnam for multifarious years. Most successful Antwerp designers decide to endure in Antwerp however Aldegonde is an adventurous woman who wanted to be a inventor in her own right.
Aldegonde’s passion for fashion is to create one off pieces. In her boutiques both in Hoi An and Da Nang all of her amassments are unique and once bought no two are the same. This is rare to bump into uncover in a saturated market as fashion. However it is the core essence and the key to her big name.
To be able to create designs, from start to beginning, rejecting local produces and sellers of fabrics. I love that I am in conduct as the designer and it’s the core essence in creating clothing that clients from around the globe continue to return. I am very delegate in preserving the art of what is left here in Vietnam regarding skilled craftsmanship. Advance the local community in regards to weaving techniques. A room congested of empty looms, leaves me with an empty heart! – Aldegonde
Avana Concept Stock Da Nang
So committed to local craftsmanship, Aldegonde decided to line-up with artist Nguyen Quoc Dan. Together they offed a journey and spent pain staking months scouting, gather together empty looms and recycled wood from Vietnam to invent a unique and well thought out concept store in an up and coming neighbourhood of Da Nang. In fact it’s such a rare store that has not leaded anything like this anywhere else in Vietnam. It is multifarious like an art museum than a boutique. The attention to detail using recycled goods from all about the country is why the Avana Concept Store is so unique.
Life and business always comes with risks. Showcasing my one off pieces in an buoy up room of art is all about the buying experience. Who am I to dictate what a man or a lasses should wear. My collections offer the freedom for the buyer to buy into what I telephone call a gender neutral era world of fashion. In my store, time is no part my customers can have a local beer or coffee and play masquerade ups. In that freedom of exploration, my clothing comes to life. – Aldegonde
Here in Vietnam Aldegonde has the control to choose from end of vary fabrics, found in the factories. Aldegonde also travels all over the globe to source the finest fabrics. From South East Asia, Europe or Africa nothing limits her to her commitment to the crowd of fashion. Aldegonde lives the lifestyle by embracing the culture of composing and textiles around the globe. This is fun and exciting as the fabrics are indulgence and high quality, therefore nothing is wasted and the quality of fabrics are not compromised. She cossets for a niche market and is loyal to her customers.
It is one of the most fascinating creative stores I have seen here in South East Asia, beneficial here in Da Nang, Vietnam. If I had to describe Aldegonde Van Alsenoy in an hidden art form this is it. The shopping experience here is just magic, edgy and chic. A collision of fashion and art, the AVANA Da Nang value is the result of a rich collaboration between the Belgian designer and acclaimed Vietnamese artist Dan Quoc Nguyen. Drawing inspiration from the Co Tu classes of the Central Highlands, Ava and Dan have created a masterpiece of fashion, wood, art and guile.
I loved the rhythmic tribal carvings that formed the improve backdrop for Aldegonde’s singular pieces, crafted from the finest handmade fabrics and brocades to develop unique and sustainable fashion. The clothes are also hang on superbly wooden carved coat hangers which is how meticulous Aldegonde is when it emerge b be publishes to her Avana boutique.
The whole exploration as a customer is relaxed and the value allows me to search at my own leisure. The more I delve into the give birth to of Avana, the more I realise that these one off pieces, remain alone in this world of saturated fashion.
Don’t limit yourself, my togging are a universal shape for men and women. I don’t work in sizes, I create being advanced position by fabrics and textiles around the globe, it’s gender neutral. – Aldegonde
