Vietnamese Only Asian Designer To Win Leonardo Simpson’s Best Dressed Award

HANOI, Nov 17 (Bernama) — Vietnamese designer Vo Viet Chung was the only Asian who received recognition in the 7th annual Leonardo Simpson’s 10 Best Dressed Awards, Vietnam News Agency (VNA) reported.

The award ceremony was held last week at the Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines hotel in California, United States.

Chung has showcased his designs on many television programmes and at prestigious events around the world, with an eye for trends and a distinctive original style.

He is well known for his glamorous and sophisticated creations that reflect an amalgam of classic Vietnamese design and a dynamic and vibrant modern culture.

Chung is the founder of Vietnam’s Miss Ocean Beauty contest and has won Best Designer of the Year title for several times.

The Vietnam Environment Protection Fund appointed Chung as director of the Blue Ocean World project last year.

Leonard Simpson is known as the creator of Fashion Forward, an internationally known fashion production company with over two decades of experience in producing fashion shows, TV segments and Broadway-style shows.

The awards’ selection criteria were based on the evaluation of fashion critics and writers from leading fashion magazines through one of fourĀ  prestigious fashion shows in London, Milan, Paris and New York.
