Thai Nguyen – Say I do
Fashion designer Thai Nguyen has always been a household name in the fashion industry, but many of us are meeting him for the first time on new Netflix show Say I do!
Thai features in Say I do with culinary expert Gabriele Bertacinni, and interior design expert Jeremiah Brent – another Say I do star that we can’t get enough of!
On the wedding show, dedicated to long-term couples who have not yet tied the knot, Thai looks after the fashion side of the wedding – his area of expertise.
Yes, in a truly short space of time, Thai Nguyen creates a dress for each bride on the show – and the results are incredible!
In fact, in a post on Instagram, Thai called his role on Say I do, the opportunity of a lifetime. The role has certainly meant a lot to him in his career. Additionally, in the post, Thai details the struggles he had faced in the fashion industry linked to his name and the importance of his authenticity.

My name is THAI NGUYEN. In the already highly competitive industry of fashion, I was often told to rethink my name, or change it to something easier to pronounce. Some even outright said to use something “less Vietnamese.” Ironically, the same people would encourage designers to stay true to who they are and where they come from. After over a decade of hard work, blood, sweat, and tears, I built and self-financed my own brand – THAI NGUYEN ATELIER. I was, and still proudly am, a Vietnamese immigrant with a big dream and a passion for fashion. Today, I’m so happy to live in a time where we continue to move towards the celebration of diversity and inclusivity. Scout Productions and Netflix have given me a once in a lifetime opportunity to be my true self. To be as authentic as I can be with my designs, my life, and with all of my feelings. Finally, I’ve been noticed. Finally, I have a voice. I am forever grateful and promise to use this platform to share my experiences and my journey as a Vietnamese-American fashion designer who lived my dreams by staying authentic to myself. If you’ve ever felt different, lesser than, or on the outside – this promise is especially for you. On top of it all, I get to channel my talent and passion to give deserving couples the special day of their dreams! Yes, that is me and my beautiful bride. Can’t wait for you to see #sayido coming to you on Wednesday July 1 on Netflix. #netflix #thainguyen #thainguyenatelier #dreamsdocometrue #beyou #beauthentic
