Trang Bui was born in Vung Tau, Vietnam as the third daughter of eight siblings. Trang’s father was a tailor and so by the time Trang was 9 years of age, she had to help her father at the tailor shop. Trang then learned to cut and sew. When Trang was older, she had the opportunity to study at the school of fashion & design in Saigon but she soon realized she already knew everything she was being taught.
By the time Tang was 17, she was owner of several successful hotels and restaurants but continued to have a passion for sewing and design.
After selling her businesses and coming to the U.S. at the age of 33, Trang decided to become a seamstress. She has her own design and alteration shop in Midway City, CA. She loves to design and create Ao Dais, Evening Gowns, Wedding Gowns, Ready to Wear, and Tailored Suits. She also does furniture upholstery and pet clothing but her passion is the Ao Dai.
During her free time she likes to sing in the church choir and do charity fashion shows.
The reason Trang wants to participate in VFW, is to establish her brand, TB Designs. Trang will be debuting her Pink Wedding Ao Dai Collection and her Black Ready to Wear Ao Dais at Viet Fashion Week Season 4.
