His career got a major boost when he was selected over 30 other designers to appear in, the now defunct, Ebony Man Magazine. He went on to become the recipient of a couple of design awards, which include the Best Sportswear Designer of the Year 1982 (Joyce Mills & Associates), and the Couture Award for Outstanding Young Designers 1983-84 (Deb Tech Consulting Service).
In recent years, he has done freelance designing, manufacturing, & consulting for over 40 urban lines in the Washington Metropolitan area, such as Mchunu, All Daz, Shooters, and Madness, just to name a few. Under the moniker of VMAC, he and his former partner launched their own line in 2001. It included playful, trendy urbanwear, vivacious couture, and racy, eye-catching swimwear.
After splitting from his partner in 2004, Victor debuted his Victor Hou Collection for DC Fashion Week II in 2005.
