Barbara Bui was born in 1957 in Paris, France. Her mother was French and her father was Vietnamese. She has a Master's degree in English literature and her background is in the theatre.
From the beginning, Bui’s clothes have represented a strong and elegant woman, mixing more severe pieces such as leather jackets with voluminous, bias-cut skirts. She tends to favor black or tonal colors, and traditional fabrics such as wool and leather, which give her designs a richness and timeless quality.
