Tan (1934). French designer. Born in Indochina with a Corsican father and a Vietnamese mother, he collected and summarized for himself the tastes of West and East, synthesizing them in his work. He created his first designs when he was still in school in Vietnam, all the time dreaming about Paris. In 1956 he arrived in Paris where he found a job at Dior. He later worked with the designer, Jules Franµois Crahay in the fashion house, followed by Jacques Heim. In 1972 after being the designer for Mic Mac for a long period of time, he presented his own Collection characterized by a strong oriental inspiration. From a managerial point of view, his path was rather uneven. He always worked for third parties, designing, for example, some Hermès Collections with Claude Brouet. In recent years, he has proposed a new perfume for Le Club des Créateurs de Beauté of Paris.
