DETAILS AND BACKGROUND:
“Electrical Engineer Turned Fashion Designer"
It's a path less travelled, and a gutsy move for somebody who was originally trained in dealing with the absolute and the factual. But none of that mattered to Mimi, who always knew she'd end up in the abstract world of fashion one day.
Mimi Tran was born in Vietnam and emigrated at the age of seven to Paris where she attended boarding school and was recognized as a gifted child in free style art. At the age of 14, her family left Paris and moved to the United States. She graduated from college with degrees in electrical engineering and international business management, and began her career in engineering at Cisco. But her creative side kept pulling her toward her dreams of creative expression….
Three years ago, Mimi, an engineer-turned-fashion designer, began her design career, specializing in form-fitting dresses at affordable prices. On Friday 9/13/2013 Mimi will officially launch her new fashion line at Silver Creek Country Club. The designs from Mimi’s Runway sculpt the body and accentuate the curves of the female form. Sensuous, exclusive and unforgettable, her work empowers femininity and pays tribute to modern glamour.
On the evening of September 13th, the country club becomes a 007-themed setting like nothing ever seen in San Jose--exotic cars, beautiful models, local celebrities and musical and dance performers.
General Admission attendees will be invited to an indoor/outdoor reception from 6:30 - 8:00, where champagne and appetizers will be served in the beautiful clubhouse setting. At 8:00pm, attendees will be seated and the runway will light up with a series of fashion lines including swimwear and evening wear in a James Bond, 007-inspired theme.
VIP ticket-holders will experience a welcome reception in a special VIP-only setting, with open bar service from 6:30 - 8:00pm. Specialty hors d'oeuvres will be offered and the VIP's will mingle with the 30 show models during the reception. VIP ticket holders will have special seating next to the runway during the fashion show.
Sprinkled throughout the evening will be live entertainment, featuring Dance Theatre International and a number of talented Bay Area performers. DJ Aaron Ettinger of Santana Row’s Straits and Sino will supply the show’s soundtrack. After the show, the ballroom will transform into an after-show dance party with Aaron at the turntable. For those desiring a V.I.P. experience, a special pre-event ‘Meet the Models’ party followed by reserved front-row seating, will be available via advance purchase.
Silver Creek Valley Country Club is San Jose’s largest and most striking private golf and country club. Situated atop hills overlooking the golf course, lakeside waterfalls, and the Evergreen and Silicon Valleys, the 34,000 s.f. Clubhouse is a site perfectly suited for special events like Mimi’s Fashion Extravaganza.
