CHRISTINE PHUNG

Christine Phung is an award-winning designer whose signature collection is both delicate and boldly architectural.
It moves effortlessly between structured and fluid lines.
Ms. Phung is passionate about how fabrics fall and the richness of their touch.

The result of her interests is a collection that is both discreetly seductive and resolutely modern.
Ms.Phung was raised in France by a Cambodian father and a French mother.
Thanks to this dual culture, Ms. Phung has a strong appreciation of printed fabrics and materials.

She studied fashion design at the École Duperré, and at the Institut Français de la Mode and soon began working for companies including
Christophe Lemaire, Chloé, Vanessa Bruno, Lacoste and Baby Dior.
In 2008, she exhibited her designs at the Musée d’Art Moderne in Liège for its Biennale du Design show.

Ms. Phung won the Grand Prix of design for the City of Paris in 2011 and was a finalist in 2012 Mango Fashion Awards.
In 2013, she won the ANDAM prize in the category « Premières Collections ».

The collection Fall-Winter 13-14 “Round Fields”, presented in March 2013, is a collection between tension and release, between straight lines and curves.
Inspired by a traveller immersed in a mid-flight daydream, Christine Phung imagines facing the emptiness and vertigo above the circular fields of Nevada.
A playful and dreamy experience, a test of one’s sense of self and one’s limits.
