Inspired by the rich culture and history of Vietnam, dePomp embraces captivating colour and texture in a modern context. The primary intention behind this collection is to investigate the ways in which the image of Vietnamese clothing and traditional dress has affected the image of the nation throughout the past century. What results is an eclectic clashing mash up of all elements which have influenced Vietnam; the people, the land, the cities and the fashion.
