Brighton Designer - Lien Hoang-Kaufman

Inspired by her children's wonderment and curiosity, designer Lien Hoang-Kaufman tries to see the world with fresh eyes. She appreciates the tiny details in her everyday surroundings, like gazing up at the stars through a telescope. This inspired her ethereal Halo Collection.

What led you to be a designer?
I’ve always found drawing to be a relaxing, enjoyable activity. I knew I wanted an artistic career. Now I am living my dream of drawing for a living, and having my creations produced into tangible pieces is incredible.

What’s your background?
I studied fine arts and fashion design in Pasadena. I’d grown up sewing, and began as a sample maker at my family’s garment manufacturing business. I saw a design support opportunity at Brighton, assisting designers and creating technical line drawings. I was given a few design projects. After six years of designing charms and jewelry while still doing design support duties, I became a full-time designer.

Currently reading?
The works of Dr. Seuss and Shel Silverstein, which are staples with a 2 and 7-year old.

Your designs are?
My designs are usually delicate, dynamic, and colorful. I like sculptural things full of dimension and depth, and I tend to sketch in small scale.

Originally from?
I’m Cantonese, born in Vietnam, raised in L.A.

What’s on your desk?
Pictures of my family and Swarovski crystals.
