Dieu Le came to the United States in 1975 as a young girl. Along with her family, she was a refugee from Vietnam. After some time at Camp Pendleton, she relocated to the east coast. Fashion and style have always been central elements for Dieu, and she chose to wear a traditional Vietnamese dress, the Ao Dai, to note the sustained relationship she maintains with Vietnam. Dieu has several Ao Dai, collects them, and hopes to continue her family tradition by sharing her interest in the Ao Dai with her daughter.
