Han’s graduation project was inspired by Son Doong cave. Behind the work, Han wants to convey a new look at Vietnam’s nature through a modern, youthful and daring lens, in contrast to the old age that Son Doong cave has experienced over millions of years.
“This collection is a completely new style compared to my old designs when I was in school. I feel very happy and proud to have stepped out of my comfort zone to challenge something new.” , Han expressed.
The graduation project was completed by Han within 3 months, including many processes such as sketching, editing, sewing, material handling, lookbook photography, video recording, etc. The cost of the graduation project in particular, as well as the entire project in 4 years of study, was paid for by her own savings. Although she did not disclose specific numbers, Han said that the total cost for this graduation project is not a small amount for her.
Han discovered her passion for fashion has existed since childhood. She recalls: “Back then, my mother worked as a seamstress, so I often asked her for cloth to practice making dolls, and then drew. I also loved to draw, drawing on paper and then drawing on the wall, causing my father to scold me all the time.
In addition, since childhood, I also like to see the collections of famous designers from Dior, Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent… After that, the family realized their passion and talent, so they were very supportive and determined lead me down this path.”
While studying at Ho Chi Minh City University of Architecture, Thuy Han actively sought opportunities to work with designer Hoang Minh Ha, she herself now manages her own fashion brand. Thanks to practical experiences, Han’s specialized knowledge and skills have improved significantly over time.
Learning fashion is also expensive
Compared to other professions, a special feature of Fashion Design students is that they have to complete many projects during 4 years of study. Most projects need to be done fully from drawing sketches, buying fabrics, processing fabrics, making patterns, making samples, taking photos, making introductory videos… Also, the cost of making projects is always a pain.” headache” of many students.
That is one of the reasons that for a long time, Fashion Design has always been misunderstood as an industry for “rich children”. This is also true, but not entirely.
Expressing her views around this, Han said: “The cost of studying Fashion is quite high, you have to have enough passion to pursue it. For me, if you don’t invest, the work will not be of good quality. Like people say: Ordinary clothes. Your design is not great, but if you hire the right model, the design can be a lot brighter.
In fact, for students in their major, who have a lot of projects and are still in a row, finding enough funding can be difficult. Usually we have to pay out of pocket. Or you often joke that ‘parents are sponsors’.
In addition, if you work in this industry, if you have a relationship with a model or a photographer, they will help you for free or support at a student price. And if your design is good, it’s easy to get funding. If you work in the industry, building relationships with many people will be very beneficial.”
In real life, Han has a height of 1m70 and an impressive dressing sense
That’s how beautiful and talented she is, but the sad news for anyone who wants to know Han is that she already has a boyfriend. Han’s “other half” is striker Le Minh Binh – a hot boy player who plays for Hoang Anh Gia Lai club. The couple’s love story was positively received by the audience because it was so beautiful.
“We’ve been together for 4 years now. I’m also very happy because during the graduation project, even though I faced many difficulties, I always had her by my side to encourage and cheer.”Thuy Han shared.

In the near future, Han wants to develop her personal brand and maintain her work as an influencer on social networks. Particularly in the field of content creation, besides the available content on fashion, beauty and life experiences, Han wants to convey more useful knowledge about fashion to bring positive value to the community. .
