Yen Vu is the woman who founded Vietnam’s FIRST label of its kind: COCOSIN.
In Vietnam, Cocosin is a homegrown brand that is a rival to international fashion giants like Zara and Uniqlo. Hailing from Vũng Tàu City, Yen Vu graduated from the Royal Melbourne Institution of Technology with a degree in Merchandising Commerce, landing a job soon after in digital marketing at an e-commerce website. Just a year in, she realized that the regular office gig wasn’t for her. Without backing and whilst learning on the go, she launched her label Cocosin with not much more than a passion for fashion and an appetite for change.
Now, her label has allowed her to collaborate with the biggest names in the country, and she’s focused on creating affordable yet trendy clothes for the modern woman. With Haberman, her new ready-to-wear urban menswear brand, she’s also catering to the modern man.
