THE NEW DISTRICT IS OUR NEW FAV FLEA MARKET
AnyArena Talks To Founder Ryan Son Hoang
One of Saigon’s most fashionable flea markets for the young and hip, The New District, celebrated its 6th edition with an array of top boutique brands on the weekend including HER Accessories, Urbanista, Nosbyn, Floral Punk, Kelbin’s House and Have Fun With The Hommies, just to name a very few.
The New District has something for everyone: from clothing to shoes, bags, hats and accessories for both guys and girls. It’s a great chance to have a day out with your besties and grab some new looks.
AnyArena went along to the latest installment of the event and had a chat to Ryan Son Hoang, the founder of our fav flea market.
“Compared with other fashion flea markets for young people, The New District doesn’t have that many brands. All are carefully selected: each must has a distinct style, high-quality products which together makes a young, vibrant and ‘multi-colour’ bazaar,” says Ryan.
‘In the near future, I plan to bring The New District to Hanoi and Da Nang,” he says. “I wish to offer young people a fun-packed, variety-and-quality filled shopping experience that promotes made-in-Vietnam boutique brands that deserve attention, as well as guiding youth fashion tastes.
AnyArena also talked with the founders of some of the most popular boutique brands shoppers could get their hands on at The New District.
Kelbin Lei - Founder of Kelbin’s House: ‘This is my second time at The New District. It’s a fun, effective format to introduce Kelbin’s House to new young buyers. Also, we have plenty of new designs around the time before Lunar New Year, so joining The New District is a must.’

Cherry Bui - Founder of HER Accessories: ‘I know Ryan, the founder of The New District, and he invited me to join. From the very first fair, I’ve participated in every single one. The brands are selective, well-known and attract a large number of young fashion-minded people. I would continue to support this awesome bazaar in the future.’
Liem Dang - Founder of Have Fun With The Hommies: ‘I went to check out The New District once and found it really exciting, then I decided to get a booth. This is my 5th time. Every time, I gained quite a few more followers on our Facebook page and got new customers.’
