Ones To Watch: Thai Womenswear

February 08, 2016
Thai Trendsetters
LUXE rounds up the current made-in-Thailand fashion favourites, from frocks that guarantee instant glamour to perky playsuits. Bangkok’s womenswear is making waves…

Fashionistas seeking couture and evening wear should scan the rails of Chai Gold Label. Chai Jiamkittikul is known for his romantic flowing and fitted forms, with dramatic draping, bold bows and ruffles, and vibrant colours (think pink, red and orange). Minimal dresses are teamed with folded texture detail, while simple shapes and gleaming glam-metallics rule. Chai studied fashion in Norway and was the Asian Fashion Federation’s Outstanding Young Fashion Designer in 2010.

You’ll also find elegant pieces for a big occasion at Klär Lov, which specialises in evening wear and wedding dresses. Tim Pisith Sirihamarat’s designs are ultra-feminine, radiating classic romance. Gowns come bedecked with subtle beading and soft shapes inspired by tulips and lilies.

Vatanika’s popular-in-Paris ready-to-wear collection is favoured by celebrities such as model-turned-actor Cara Delevingne. Vatanika Patamasingh studied at London’s Central Saint Martins and the London College of Fashion, launching her womenswear label in 2011. She loves strong prints and sexy silhouettes, putting the fierce into feminine.

For girly twirly pastels and playsuits that tick print and colour trend boxes check out runaway runway success Milin. Created by Central Saint Martins graduate Milin Yuvacharuskul, they’re cute and sexy, with body-con, mini yet sophisty looks to take you from the desk to the dance floor.
