Malvin Vien

New York City-based designer Malvin Vien attended college at the University of Redlands, where he earned a degree in Social Medicine and Creative Solipsism through the University’s Center for alternative studies. He gained some of his early design training at the university’s costume department and later went on to study fashion design at Parsons The New School for Design.

His design philosophies are simple, "Find pieces that really speak to who you are."
