Andrew Urbain is a tailor and a master cutter, designing mainly eveningwear, cocktail and event wear, plus day and business wear.
The designer launched his own label in August 2000, with his business partner Michel Deschodt.
It has been said that the Vietnamese-born, New York-based designer exhibits an exquisite eye for detail, and has a specialty of using crystals in many of his designs, providing a couture feel to many of the ready-to-wear pieces. As his designs are very elegant and sexy at the same time, they were featured in the show Sex & the City, for example, providing a glimpse to the hottest fashion that New York has to offer. It has been said that Andrew Urbain collections have been gaining popularity as fashion moves away from distinct needs for purpose-specific attire and favors the merging of day and evening wear.
