Graduation year


Hanh Nguyen (Susan) was born and raised in Vietnam. 
Currently lives in San Francisco, California, USA.

“do not look for great inspirations; they are right next to you.”

To pursue her goals with her high ambition, she enrolled at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco majoring in Fashion Design where she is learning the fundamental principles and beyond that will shape her for the fashion industry. In terms of personal traits, she would call herself a perfectionist, self-motivated and result-oriented, with her strong dedication to Fashion Design (womenswear). She is positive and works around obstacles. 

The journey at the Academy of Art really helped her to find herself and what she truly loves to do. The whole process of creating and collaborating from the very first inspiration to the sketches, then toiling the looks, makes she feel like she belongs to this place. Always inspired by other artists and/or unexpected things around, she is a womenswear designer with a little masculine side. 

Hanh's biggest goal is to become a renowned fashion designer specializing in womenswear. She enjoys designing, sewing and keeping herself on trend with the latest fashion through magazines and social media.

Hanh (Susan) is one of the top 50 graduates of 2018 in America and her thesis collection was shown at the Fashion Future Graduate Showcase by CFDA in New York City.
She is also one of the 50 finalists of Art of Fashion Competition 2018.
Her thesis collection is featured on Not Just A Label as the top graduate of 2018.
