I decided to end the Viva series with Uyen Vu because I wanted to head into Vegas on a hight-note and Ueyn is, quite literally, a rock star (I mean, really, she used to sing in a metal band). It’s so perfect that Uyen (pronounced “When”) landed at COUTURE as our graphic designer/creative director–she’s as much of an artist in her own right as the designers and brands that exhibit with us. Uyen works hand-in-hand with our Marketing Director, Erin O’Donnell, on establishing the overall look and feel of all things COUTURE. From our emails, to our signage and everything in between, Uyen is the one who makes us look amazing. She also has a penchant for brown liquor, the Los Angeles Kings and graffiti art, and she’s got a seemingly bottomless stash of hilarious memes that she shoots back to us in emails at the most opportune times, giving us a little laughter on a daily basis.
