Making His Mark

Making his Mark

The work of Tuan Nguyen ’05, a graduate of the apparel design and development program, appeared on the February 2007 cover of Vogue magazine.

Nguyen is a technical designer and production manager for Knit Illustrated in New York City’s Fashion Center. He oversaw the development and production of the sweater dress, which is worn on the magazine cover by Academy Award-winning actress Renee Zellweger. The gray V-neck was developed under the Michael Kors label and retails for $1,195.

Originally from Minneapolis, Nguyen has worked at Knit Illustrated for a year. His knowledge of knitting, which he learned at UW-Stout, landed him the position. Nguyen plans to stay in New York and hopes his experience at Knit Illustrated will lead to his own fashion line.
