4. Ngo Thai Bao Loan, the new hope
Vietnam fashion first learnt about Ngo Thai Bao Loan when she was in the top 5 of Vietnam Project Runway season 1. However, with months of working for a Hanoi-based Spanish fashion brand, Loan is not a newbie in the industry.

This promising designer has recently started her own brand in Hanoi. Loan’s clothes are just like herself: young, cool and relax. “I always feel shy every time putting on a tight dress or shirt. That’s why I usually do my shopping and find inspiration at male fashion stores,” said Loan.
