About the author Alain Truong
A few words about me
Born in Saigon (Vietnam) of a family of industrialists on the paternal side and art collectors on the maternal side, I attended French schools and high schools until Bac. I became a collector and an active member of the French Society of Oriental Ceramic Studies.
After studying economics in Paris II and art history at the Ecole du Louvre, I joined a law firm.
At the same time, since 1984, I have been a fashion designer. So I made several personal parades at the Museum of Modern Art of the City of Paris among others and participated in group parades. I was laureate of a contest of young creators and participated twice in the Fashion Festival organized by ELLE magazine at Galeries Lafayette. I also participated in group exhibitions, including two at the Museum of Fashion and Costume, Palais Galliéra. This museum also has in his collection three of my models. I am currently creating jewels, always in unique copies.
Alain.R.Truong, an amazing collection of Chinese Object Images
If you're not familiar with the eponymous French based art website run by Alain R. Truong, you don't know what you're missing. The site is updated constantly with images and stories about everything from Asian art to fine jewellery. Fortunately for those of us who like Chinese and Asian Art, Alain is also a huge fan with impeccable taste and very knowledgable.
