Founded in 2018 by Kha Nguyen and Thuan Phung, Hidden Archive was built to provide the Vietnamese fashion community a new look at archival fashion by showcasing designers' most iconic pieces.

With an idea of a place where people who share the same passion, Hidden Archive’s ARCHIVISM event was born. Initially launched in 2018 and considered one of the first events of its kind in Vietnam, ARCHIVISM ignited a groundswell of interest among attendees and Vietnamese fashion enthusiasts—all while empowering new members to take part in the rapidly expanding core community.

This year’s ARCHIVISM has two core themes. The first and most important is "Fashion for everyone," a principle that aims to attract and gather people together based on a shared common interest. The other thematic throughline is a focus on three influential Japanese designers: Yohji Yamamoto, Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garçons and Issey Miyake. An offering from each designer will be showcased at the event, including a selection of pieces curated by Grailed.

The expansive catalog features crowd favorites, including (but not limited to): Issey Sport bombers, deconstructed Comme des Garçons trousers, as well as pieces that are sustainable environmentally friendly and sustainable.

ARCHIVISM 2019 will be held on July 13 and July 14 at Gemax Cafe and Lounge in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. For details on timeline, location, fares, please check out Hidden Archive on Facebook and Instagram.
