While Jeremiah is focusing on the design aesthetic of the wedding and Gabriele is zeroed in on food, Thai is in charge of fashioning a dress for the bride in a small window of time.
Ahead of taking on the angel role on Say I Do, Thai founded Thai Nguyen Atelier, and he currently works there as the creative director.
Per his company’s website, Thai first learned how to sew at the age of nine. He grew up in South Vietnam, and his family moved to the United States in 1993. Thai received his degree from The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) in Los Angeles, Calif. in 2002. Upon his graduation, Thai began to work at BCBG Max Azria as an associate designer.
Following his time at BCBG Max Azria, Thai formed his own brand, which focuses on the marriage between delicate and contemporary design.
As for who is part of his A-List clientele, Thai has created designs for the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Samira Wiley, Ariana Grande, Juliette Lewis, Katy Perry, Laverne Cox, Kristen Bell, and Lala Anthony.
The designer is based in Orange County, Calif., and Say I Do is not his first foray into reality TV. Thai was a judge for Vietnam on the CBS talent competition World’s Best in 2019.
