Vincent studied fashion in Melbourne and Hong Kong.

Vincent’s passion and love for fashion is not just to create something new and amazing to wear but it’s much deeper, he wants to capture the emotions and heart of the wearer. It’s not the aesthetics but the whole; you put the clothes on and then begin the journey into intellectual artisanship which each of his garments aims to instil. The designer’s personality is infused into every piece he creates.
