In Conversation with Nga Nguyen
Boasting a cool 48.5K followers, Nga Nguyen’s Instagram is one for the books. Her style is a testimonial to her international background having hailed from Vietnam where she was born and raised. Now residing between London and Paris, the two fashion capitals, it’s no wonder that she’s gained a loyal following. We've teamed up with Nga for an exclusive collaboration featuring her favourite Saint Laurent looks.

Her knack for style comes from a love of fashion and art, which she feeds through her jet-set nature, oft the backdrop of her well-curated Instagram feed. What we don’t see is the business acumen that Nga has garnered through running her family’s real estate business which she has put to use working on a project well-under wraps that she tells us is ‘an amazing retail franchise’. Driven by hardwork, Nga proves that she doesn’t have to forego one passion for the other, business can be done whether she’s wearing Saint Laurent's crystal-embellished boots of the season – the ones spotted on Rihanna and Kendall Jenner – a classic T-shirt and shorts combination, or a floral Dolce & Gabanna dress. With a wardrobe that hosts a treasure chest of looks, the influencer is a style chameleon boasting an aptitude for mixing and matching pieces. We speak to Nga about her personal style and all things fashion.
