Nancy Vuu at Hollywood Changemaker’s Podcast

February 25th, 2022


Nancy Vuu



For many in the fashion world, similarly to the filmmaking world, there seem to be an endless barrage of the talented and not-so-talented, doing whatever it takes to “make it big”. No dreamer is too small and many vie for “the dream” for those in fashion – to create collections for fashion week, to have a self-named atelier, and to create a global and recognizable brand. For Nancy Vuu, however, this is not the story.

Nancy didn’t even begin her journey into the fashion world until she was already a mother of four children. She was thriving in a corporate job, when God called her to leave the position that had helped keep her family in a place of financial comfort through the economical ups and downs for years. However, when the Lord reminded her of her childhood dream to be a fashion designer, and asked her if she’d go where He was leading, Nancy said YES, and a door to the world of fashion was opened. Since that day, Nancy has gone with the Lord around the world, and from Vogue to the streets of LA, sharing the God-dream, and her talents, to anyone who will listen. She has expanded from Children’s headpieces and gowns to a full collection of royally inspired gowns and pieces, editorial photography, creative direction, and has even entered the film-making world.

Find out more about Nancy at her website:

In this interview of Hollywood Changemakers Podcast, Nancy shares her journey, her mindset, and her revelation at what it means to say YES to the God-dreams that are placed in the hearts of every person. She has often asked this question: “If everything was taken care of, and you could dream with God, what would you do?”. It’s a question that not many have been asked, and is an even harder one to answer. Come with us as we explore and challenge Christians who feel called to the fashion industry and beyond to DREAM WITH GOD!

Switzerland, Zurich – Sarah Fässler

By Global Local Chapter Directors

The Swiss Chapter was founded in November 2015 and is located in the canton of Zurich. We really enjoy and value our international community and the relationships this network has brought to us over the years. Through these relationships, our focus of praying for Hollywood has expanded to praying for the global industry and the people involved.

In regard to Switzerland, we pray for the impact of art and its expression of worship to be a welcomed friend in the church. We have a heart for praying for creatives and industry professionals living in the area, for community to grow and Jesus to be praised.

As for our prayer sessions we found the daily devotional book  “Hollywood, Jesus and You” by Karen Covell and Kimberly Roberts to be a good companion.

We don’t meet in person, but you are welcome to contact us for questions and prayer requests. If you are an intercessor yourself, please join!
