For her Quynh Paris lineup, Quynh Nhu fused the traditional dress of her native Vietnam with the tailoring she learned at Mod’Art International in France. She folded iridescent silk jacquard into intricate pleats on jackets and showed her whimsical side by attaching a bolerolike panel on a long-sleeve dress and adding pointy peaks on the hips of knee-length skirts.
While interesting, the avant-garde eveningwear felt like a disconnect. More arty than wearable, the dresses featured silver 3-D adornments, inspired by snow, ice and frost, that jetted out from shoulders, hips and waistlines.
