What she loves about Fashion?
“I love fashion because it has the power to instantly elevate and transform”.
What Inspires her Designs?
“My greatest inspiration is my faith and looking through creative portals to Heaven. I use fashion to answer my heart’s longing in bringing Heaven’s beauty and glory to earth”.
How she incorporates her Photography into Fashion?
“I started as an editorial photographer working with other brands. So when I launched my own brand, Nancy Vuu, it was great to incorporate my ability to create and capture fashion through the camera lens. Having the understanding of what I want as a fashion designer and the know how to create it as a photographer positions me for excellence as a creative director”.
Her Passions beyond Fashion?
“I love how fashion has given me the platform to empower good. Outside of fashion, I am very passionate about the work of House of Vuu, and supporting and collaborating with other forces for good. Outside of fashion and philanthropy you can find me in my home garden. From pruning, planting, watering, or just simply basking in the beauty that surrounds me, my garden is my happy place”.
The process steps for design?
“It all begins with quiet time for me. It’s a sacred time where my spirit worships and transcends to meet with my Creator and here I get to dream with Him and receive heavenly downloads for fresh designs. I always get excited when the Creator brings the “reveal”. I have so much fun sketching the designs and finding the right textiles. Once this is done, I work closely with my design team to bring the designs to life”.
How her Faith fuels her Fashion?
“My faith is everything, and my faith guides me in every area of my life. My faith and pursuit of “the” Creator has positioned me to see life with greater purpose and to see fashion from a heavenly perspective where garments come alive to release hope, healing and beauty in our world”.
The focus of the House of Vuu Foundation?
“House of Vuu Foundation is the heartbeat of Nancy Vuu Brand. It is the charitable arm of our brand, a 501-c3. Our vision is to develop Love Sanctuaries globally for displaced children to thrive as we prepare for the end of human trafficking. To creatively use our fashion platform to empower women and youth with strength, courage and boldness.

What she looks for in a Collection?

How it all began?
“In 2013, I had a supernatural encounter that completely changed the trajectory of my life. I was currently working in the corporate world, transitioning to be a stay home mom. I was at a women’s faith conference when suddenly God encountered me. My ability to see or hear in the natural was shut down. All I could hear was an audible voice from Heaven with visions that flashed before me that spoke my identity and catapulted me into my purpose and destiny”.

Her voyage; Vietnam to America..
“I will never forget when my father told me the story of when he looked into my eyes as I was dying in his arms. We were refugees on a small boat and I was very sick, fast fading away. My father held me tightly and looked to Heaven and cried “God save my daughter. If you save my daughter, I will know that she has a great purpose and calling in her life.” God saved me that day. I am forever grateful to my father who prayed for my life and God who saved me so I could live my life to fullest”.
