828Suzette Opara, the Lead Designer is a based out in Chicago, IL but originally from West Africa, Nigeria. Suzette went to college to get a degree in Marketing.

The name 828 began as my birthday August 28th, however after researching I found deeper meaning to the name. It's when Dr. King gave his "I had a Dream" speech, it was the day Emmett Till was murdered and the bible verse, Roman 8:28.The Eightwentyeight creates designs to make everyone feel more confident and beautiful! The 828 woman is that likes to go out often, enjoys life, stand out amongst the crowd and doesn't want to see her twin. She knows her body and want works for her.

Danny Nguyen Couture

Danny-Nguyen-Couture01Lurid fluorescent light spills over a shadowy figure working deep into the night. Exacting needles, spools of fine thread, and luxuriant fabrics find their way in and around the dexterous hands of this diligent artist. Reckless passion is cast aside and replaced by the brutal will of a true fashion designer. To describe Danny Nguyen's talents with words would be as futile as identifying infinity with a number. 

Despite his now bolstering yet enigmatic personality, Danny Nguyen's foundation in the fashion world is rooted in the soil of humility. He began as a child, under the wing of his mother. Predating his arrival to the United States, Danny would be seen at a very early age cutting fabrics, collecting designs and assisting with custodial chores around his mother’s alteration. During this period, he developed and refined many of the essential skills of a fine fashion designer.


From hence, Danny has developed further in many other aspects of the fashion world upon his arrival to the rich and diverse culture of Houston. He has his own studio for alterations and design entitled DNC (Danny Nguyen Couture) in which he spends a great deal of time pursuing his dream which dances at the end of every needle he drives into his next exquisite creation. He is a son, a brother, and a friend but most importantly, he is the embodiment of a calling whose sound does not quiet until it has reached the end of the runway.


PRSVR01Persévérer (pur suh vuh day) the French translation for persevere or PRSVR (Passion, Resilience,Sacrifice, Values, Respect) is largely based upon the premise of striving to better ones self, while aspiring to inspire others. In launching PRSVR, the initial collection of leather based luggage and outerwear combines themes of style, versatility, and functionality within each piece.

Each member of PRSVR strives for the best for their supporters and will continue to do so for those who appreciate the art of luxury.
