Asian American Designer: Dat Tran, Silk Scarf Tying
Designer appearance 12:00-3:30 pm
Inspired by the beauty of hand-woven and hand-dyed silk fabrics on his journeys to East Asia, Vietnamese-American designer Dat Tran pursues his vision of producing collections of uniquely designed scarves and accessories that integrate handmade silk fabrics, high fashion and jewelry. The natural, luxurious silk yarns are meticulously raised and cultivated in remote villages of Vietnam by small communities of highly skilled silk farmers and weavers. Fabrics are then woven on antique looms, hand-dyed and hand-crafted by local artisans.
