I wanted to keep in touch with my identity. NIXONBUI is a menswear brand as of now but we are also trying to get into women's wear very soon. The brand is all about embracing your identity and to be proud of yourself," Bui said. The brand uses 100 per cent organic fabric and sustainable material. The tribal inspirations are not only reflected in the designs, but also in the values of the company recognizing and respecting the forces of nature, advocating quality and originality. "The response from all over the world so far has been encouraging. I am looking forward to manufacture in India now," he said. At present he lives in Copenhagen. (ANI)
