Tom Trandt is a Vietnamese fashion designer whose work has been exhibited in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City when he was still a junior at Parsons the New School for Design in New York City, competing for the museum’s national competition following its annual show Charles James: Beyond Fashion.
In 2016, he moved back to Vietnam to start his own brand, Môi-Điên, which has since presented more than 4 collections and featured repeatedly on fashion magazines such as Harper’s Bazaar, Elle and L’officiel.
Due to a shortage of fabric suppliers in Vietnam, Tom Trandt and his team develop unique textile treatment techniques to bring a unique aesthetic to his brand which has been challenging gender stereotypes since its earliest stage.
“As a designer who has been practicing ethical fashion since I was a student, and a responsible citizen of the world, I am aware of the fact that every detail while running a fashion business can either contribute to our process of healing the earth, or can expose our home to greater risks.”
