Thomas Bui | Founder


Born and raised in Vietnam until eight years old, Thomas and his family escaped Saigon on April 29, 1975, the day before the country fell to Communism. During the happy years, Thomas grew up amidst French influences and an appreciation for parties. His family was involved in politics; hence, they hosted many black tie events for dignitaries throughout his childhood.   Through these experiences, he came to appreciate the panache of an exceptionally organized event. In 1999 while working in the pharmaceutical industry, Thomas began to search for a career that leveraged his creative sensibilities. He founded Thomas Bui Lifestyle the following year after completing his MBA.

Given Thomas' all-consuming passion for style and fashion, every event he produces is filled with glamour, texture and an inviting environment for entertaining. 

A signature Thomas Bui Lifestyle event is a combination of detailed sophistication with a contemporary flair. His aesthetic can be described as a modern approach to understated luxury, often joining natural elements that lend an organic feel to the atmosphere. These thoughtful details, combined with professional execution, result in productions that are refined and timeless and leave guests reminiscing for years to come.
