The Dreamers _
Bee and TyLynn Nguyen, TyLynn Nguyen
TyLynn and Bee liked each other at frst sight,
but took a few years to become a couple.
They project their Los Angeles–based business,
which makes lingerie and women’s sleepwear,
will double its revenue in 2017. _
BEE We met at a trade show in New York. I saw her
walk through the corridor and thought, “Look
at this amazing, statuesque woman.”
T YLYNN And I thought, “Look at this super
fy Asian man.”
BEE We got to talking, we stayed in touch, and three
years later, we met up again. The rest is history.
T YLYNN I have always been into lingerie. I studied
fashion design in college and took some corsetry
classes. After 10 years of modeling, I told my
husband, “You know, I have this idea: Here are a few
things I’ve made, and here’s a business plan for us.”
BEE Upon seeing the samples that she had sewn
herself, it was a no-brainer.
T YLYNN Bee and I are yin and yang. I’m creative, and
he’s very good at marketing and business.
BEE The trajectory is to turn TyLynn Nguyen into
a household name, like Diane von Furstenberg
or Ralph Lauren.
T YLYNN But we’re just lingerie and sleepwear right
now. We’re taking baby steps …
BEE … and I’m talking pie in the sky.
