Miho Aoki, Thuy Pham


Japanese-born F.I.T. alum Miho Aoki and Vietnamese-born Thuy Pham founded United Bamboo in 1998, making their New York runway debut for fall 2004.

The first United Bamboo store opened in 2003 in Tokyo and a subsequent men�s store opened in Harajuku in 2006. The line is carried throughout the U.S. and Asia as well as in select boutiques in Australia, Russia, and Canada.

The Look

The pair employs innovative patterns, fabrics, and construction, like origami pleats, asymmetrical shapes, and architectural lines.
United Bamboo provocatively plays on and reinterprets the All-American, implementing innovative pattern making techniques and subtle juxtapositions that turn the notion of preppy on its head. Grounded in the tradition of a distinctly American chic, United Bamboo captures refined differences in their clothing designs that are always original and elegant in presentation.
