“A lot of people think that fashion design is just about drawing a set of clothes, making a dress. But no. Studying at LCDF - Hanoi is where I have gained knowledge, understanding about the fashion industry and having for myself a delicate aesthetic sense. The lecturers have somehow waken up the passion inside of me”.

"All the knowledge I gained from the college is so valuable. I was taught how to brainstorm ideas, finding my own style and doing research about fashion trends to create my own characteristic and practical designs. I have also learnt to become patient and pay attention to the details."
