JW Marriott Phu Quoc debuts DMC’s SS2017 Collection

June 9, 2017 Hotel News No Comments Email Email

On 27th May 2017, over 300 guests and 60 top national models gathered at JW Marriott Phu Quoc Emerald Bay, the first international five-star resort on the island of Phu Quoc and the brand’s flagship resort property in Vietnam, for the debut of SS2017 collection “Life in Color” of famed Vietnamese fashion designer, Do Manh Cuong (DMC), coinciding with the brand’s 10th anniversary.

Jointly planned by DMC and JW Marriott Phu Quoc, guests were treated to an evening of fantasy at the stylish and fashionable resort; over 140 stunning looks of a total of four collections were featured during the 3-part fashion show, which was inspired by the mystical Lamarck University. In keeping with the “Life in Color” theme, guests were served an amazingly hand-crafted four-course dinner. Named “Food in Color”, the menu showcased a series of four dishes, each entirely executed in different colors – red, green, yellow and blue – to reflect the new design collection. “We are honoured to host this exclusive fashion show and to collaborate with such a prestigious Vietnamese fashion brand,” says Ty Collins, General Manager of JW Marriott Phu Quoc. “In line with JW Marriot’s philosophy of cultivating enriching experiences, this is the first of many big-scale events in Phu Quoc and it has become a sensation nationwide. We look forward to introducing more exciting initiatives for the rest of the year.”

The evening’s VIP guests included Bill Bensley, architect and designer of JW Marriott Phu Quoc, actress Ngo Thanh Van, ballet dancer Linh Nga, Ky Duyen, Miss Vietnam 2014, and Vo Hoang Yen, second runner-up of Miss Universe Vietnam 2008.

Considered one of the most influential fashion designers in Vietnam, Do Manh Cuong’s eponymous fashion label is highly sought-after by the country’s high society and celebrities alike.

The designer was captivated by his stay at JW Marriott Phu Quoc Emerald Bay this February, and inspired to create his latest collection entitled “Life in Color”. Drawing references from Bill Bensley’s stunning architectural design, the resort’s rich color palate and its breathtaking ocean views, the distinctive fashion line highlights the designer’s artistic flair with a range of vibrant hues and multi-layered fabrics.

“Life is boring without colors. Color is a way to define your personality and to bring joy to life. I hope my collection could fulfill people’s fantasy as what JW Marriott Phu Quoc has offered to its guests,” says Do Manh Cuong, founder and designer of DMC.
