This story starts in rural Vietnam, where Hanh Merriman lived as a young girl, equally besotted by the stunning landscapes of her country and the world that beckoned beyond them. Hanh spent her early days at her mother’s side, watching her sew and asking for fabric of her own to stitch her first creations. This ritual sparked a creative force within Hanh—a devotion to style and storytelling that has threaded through her career in fashion.
Hanh’s upbringing was equally influenced by her mother and father—both soulful, charitable people who instilled in her a focus on community and philanthropy. Hanh recalls her late father urging her to simplify and temper her infatuation with clothes. Ever the artist, Hanh couldn’t resist her gravitation to the fashion world, but over time, her father’s urgings honed her sensibility: a deeply intentional approach to dressing, focused on essential, enduring pieces that empower women to express their full selves.
From Dallas and New York to the runway shows in Paris and Milan, Hanh went on to become a fixture and fascination of the fashion world, donning original, envelope-pushing
looks for her style blog Life in Travel, and the massive media coverage it garnered. Christened “The Alcolyte of the Exquisite” by Paper City, her work as a designer and tastemaker has been chronicled by the
likes of American Vogue, InStyle, Allure, Elle, Glamour, D Magazine and Vanity Fair, among others.
Now, Hanh embarks on her next chapter, debuting a collection that embodies the totality of her experiences: coming of age in Vietnam, traveling the world as a style-setter, and evolving into the mother and visionary she is today. Refined, unexpected and fresh, Hanh’s work is the reflection of a life fully lived—a gift she now passes to free-thinking women everywhere.
HANH: ready-to-wear for the modern woman’s pursuits.
