Fashion Designer Tuong Khue visiting Virginia

eTT has done a number of this type of events photoshoot in the past, for concerts, and fashion shows (while in medium format, yes!) but guess what, for myself, I wasn't around when he photographed celebrities, so, I was excited to finally have attended a fashion show, but this time to my surprise, a fashion show of a designer who is very known in our time, Tuong Khue!! He is one of the two designers responsible for all of the Vietnamese dresses featured in the two leading music entertainment industries- worldwide! The renowned Asia Entertainment and Paris By Night. He has been around for only a number of years yet quickly had gained a lot of attention from our generation. I have seen his work on the fashion shows featured in the music videos and have even seen his musical performances. So when TT and I walked in the changing room, I quickly recognized him and was very surprised. I immediately whispered to TT to make sure that I wasn't seeing things. And TT turned and greeted Tuong Khue (TK) to make sure that's him. And indeed, Tuong Khue smiled, greeted TT and shook hands. This is one of the best things!! Being a photographer has allowed inside access to backstage (for photoshoot ;) plus meeting celebrities!! How very cool is that. Oh, not to mention to meet all the cutiessss!!! I'll show you what I mean.

But before we get started, I have to show you my Pursebuzzie inspired makeup for the night!! I'm very excited to share this with you. This is what Pursebuzzie called the Smoky Bedroom Eyes. I'll email and share this with her!

Being a new mother, Linh hasn't gone back to the club since my birthday of last year, so guess what, they had planned to come to see the fashion show and celebrated her birthday there! It so happened that TT and I were going to be there to do the photoshoot, so it worked out well!! Happy Birthday girl!

Brief Intro: All of the clothing for this runway fashion show is by fashion designer Tuong Khue. Hair is by Tanya and makeup is by Nha Yen. Hair- you have to see it to believe it, but you can judge for yourself, as I was chilling at backstage and saw the hair updo being done by Tanya, and I have to say, THUMBS UP! She really is an expert and has been around for this kind of events in the MD/DC/VA community. Each of the model has a different hair style and really rocked the house.

Favorites from the night
So, if you can't tell already, TT had fun snapping away. There were a few that caught our attention, even I really thought one of them was like a Japanese Doll. Did I mention they totally owned the stage that night? Rock ON!!
