By The River Collection Features Modern, Affordable Designs that Emphasize Elegance and Femininity for every Occasion.


How it started

My name is Minh Khanh Nguyen, a Vietnamese native that now happily resides in sunny Southern California. I am the founder of By The River Collection. For as long as I can remember, I have always had a special love for beautiful clothes. I deeply appreciate every little detail - from the cut, the fit, and the sewing stitches to the texture and feel of the fabric. I believe it is these small details that turn a piece of clothing into something great. There is something about a good outfit that empowers people, lifts them up and makes them feel empowered. For years, it has always been on the back of my mind to create my own business in order to design beautiful, well-made dresses that make women look elegant and feminine, while also radiate confidence. After working for a while in my family’s business, the Velvet Hanger tailoring shop, which is rated one of the top tailoring shops in Newport Beach, California in 2017, I decided it was now or never to make my dream come true. 

I am thrilled and proud to say that By The River Collection launched for its first season in Spring 2018.


What we stand for

First and foremost, it’s all about our dresses! We work hard to flatter and inspire you with our feminine, modern and romantic styles that are made from select high quality fabrics.

At By The River Collection, we are always on the lookout for the latest trends in fashion and once we finds something we love, we will translate it into a beautifully crafted piece that you can wear and enjoy over and over again.

To achieve a consistent, high quality product, we decided to manufacture exclusively in a small all-inclusive workshop where every piece is handled and produced by skillful craftsmen. We do not mass-produce which means that every dress is available in limited amounts only and each piece undergoes strict quality control to ensure the high standard you expect.

What else makes us special?

Next to our committed to beautiful, well-designed dresses, we also have a strong desire to offer you a pleasant shopping experience with us. We think that shopping online should be easy and enjoyable. We are devoted to providing you with an excellent experience every time you “set foot” in one of our online stores. This means high quality & detailed images, accurate and meaningful product descriptions, an easy check-out process, and stellar customer service. We are here for you if you have any questions or concerns and guarantee a response to your inquiry within 24 hours or sooner.

We also understand that sometimes a purchase just does not work out. Our return policy is designed to ensure that you are a happy customer – even in cases where a return becomes necessary. Your satisfaction with your purchase is our #1 priority. 

We encourage you to stay tuned as we constantly strive to provide you with a great customer experience by updating and improving our policies and services, introducing new ways to engage with us and offering you the best value possible.
