September 11, 2023 (New York, NY) – For its debut showing at NYFW, Vietnamese label SIXDO presented its Spring/Summer 2024 collection from renowned designer Do Manh Cuong on Sunday, September 10th at Spring Studios' Gallery to an audience of over 400 guests.
SIXDO presented 50 designs featured on 30 models that incorporated high-end, sophisticated designs with intricate detailing inspired by the bold fashion sense of New York's distinct forward-thinking fashion.
Using a dominant palette of black, white, pink and polka dots (a signature element of Do Manh Cuong), the collection featured tweed, brocade, taffeta, organza, cotton, silk, and chiffon incorporated across expert tailoring techniques and intricate embellished pieces. Advanced draping and 3D floral designs, another SIXDO hallmark, were also on full display on the runway where the label introduced for the first time 3D floral bags that took over two months to develop.
In a bold departure from the conventional straight runway, models graced the catwalk in an elegantly sinuous S-shaped formation, drawing inspiration from the captivating contours of Vietnam itself. Designer Do Manh Cuong skillfully conveyed his profound desire to infuse the very essence and aesthetic allure of Vietnam into this remarkable showcase, a heartfelt homage that celebrated both his brand's unique identity and his deeply personal connection to the culturally rich region.
The SS24 Collection marks a new chapter for Do Manh Cuong's career, embracing a broader, more mainstream fashion sensibility while staying true to his signature design style: elegance, sophistication, minimalism, and cutting-edge trends.
Almost three years in the making, SIXDO's globally anticipated debut at NYFW marks the label's global growth plan set in motion to expand beyond its 60 showrooms in Vietnam after being founded by entrepreneur Pham Huy Can and designer Do Manh Cuong in October 2020.
