Vivienne Tam

fashion designer
Birthplace: Canton, China

Tam's designs can be described as simple but unique. They combine east and west, traditional with modern. Her line of clothing is favored by such luminaries as Julia Roberts, Goldie Hawn, Madonna, and Britney Spears. She was born in China, but left the mainland for Hong Kong at age 2. She studied at Hong Kong's Polytechnic Fashion School. Shortly after graduating, she left for New York and established her first collection, East Wind Code, in 1982. She launched her eponymous label in 1994 and has boutiques in New York, Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Kobe, Japan. In 2000, she published China Chic, an illustrated book that chronicles Chinese art, clothing, and culture.
