I had the pleasure of interviewing Nicholas Nguyen who is a Houston designer who showed his collection last night at Houston Fashion Week-Red Dress Gala. Nicholas was born in Vietnam, and moved to Houston at 15. While attending UHD and studying International Business, Nicholas began pursuing his true passion—fashion. After graduating two years ago, he launched Mysterious by N.P.N. The collection fuses Vietnamese traditions with a Western modern twist. Nicholas describes his collection, “My designs are very sophisticated and romantic. I want the person wearing the garment to feel sexy, strong, and radiate confidence. A little eastern; a little western, and voila, c’est Mysterious by NPN!”

Nicholas was nominated for the 2013 F.A.C.E. awards, and won! He also made the cover of AbOut Magazine. Nicholas has had the honor of showing those designs in Austin, and Dallas, fashion week 2014, and as a result he was featured in Dallas Fab Magazine. Nicholas’s line only launched two years ago, and he has already showed at Houston Artopia, and New York Fashion week. 2015 has brought exciting opportunities for Mysterious by NPN. Recently, Nicholas won the Critic Choice Mash Up Award from AFW 2015-spring show. I love how Nicholas Nguyen fuses eastern traditions with western modernity, which creates a unique style. Mysterious by NPN is in the process of launching an on-line store, which will be ready in a couple of months. Designs can be ordered on his website at
