It is a phenomenal event in Thai fashion industry when Thai designers and 36 leading fashion brands join together to showcase their creations as part of “Bangkok International Fashion Week 2017”, featuring a whole new dimension of fashion phenomena thanks to the cooperation with three top shopping centers including Siam Paragon, Siam Center, and Siam Discovery.    

Siam Center The Ideaopolis provides a significant runway which gives young Thai designers and new-gen people the opportunity to show their talent as much as possible. This underlines being a center to promote young Thai designers—which Siam Center has been giving support. “Bangkok International Fashion Week 2017” welcomed two rising new brands including KANAPOT AUNSORN founded by Kanapot Aunsorn, and VINNPATARARIN created by two designers: Vinn Chokkhatiwat and Patararin Pongprasit. The two brands presented their own collections. As well as the fashion creations by students from eight leading universities. All of the collections have won praise and widespread acclaim.

A brand-new rising fashion label KANAPOT AUNSORN by Kanapot Aunsorn presented Sail Away collection, inspired by the story of a sailor guy “Captain Elvy” in 1943. The collection portrays the story of cruising around the world with mixing of culture, traditional art, new land and creatures as well as the story of his beloved girlfriend. Combining a variety of materials, this collection features a patchwork technique together with embroidery of flowers and sequins to add a delicate touch on fabric. Thus, the collection is like wearable works of art—featuring edgy silhouettes with functionality and unique style. VINNPATARARIN brand, founded by two designers Vinn Chokkhatiwat and Patararin Pongprasit, presented a luxury street style collection that reflects original style with cutting-edge ideas combining with smart simplicity inspired by the Postmodern-age handicrafts. The collection features a technique of making graphic patterns which perfectly combine modernity and traditional methods. Fashionistas can get updated on all the collections of KANAPOT AUNSORN and VINNPATARARIN on 3rd Floor at The Wonder Room in Siam Center.

Another fashion show, Runway Road Fashion Show No.2 Curated by Jitsing Somboon, showcased the creations by fourth-year students from eight leading universities including Faculty of Fine and Applied Arts, Chulalongkorn University; Textile, Costume, Garment and Fashion Design branch – Faculty of Fine and Applied Arts, Thammasat University; Fashion Design major for Visual Design branch – Faculty of Fine and Applied Arts, Srinakharinwirot University; Textile Science department – Faculty of Agro-Industry, Kasetsart University; Fashion Design department – Faculty of Decorative Arts, Silpakorn University; Fashion and Textile Design department – School of Fine and Applied Arts, Bangkok University; Fashion Design branch – Faculty of Art & Design, Rangsit University; and Fashion Design branch – Faculty of Fine and Applied Arts, Suan Sunandha Rajabhat University. All of them were selected by Jitsing Somboon, Thailand’s prominent creative consultant. This fashion show features a range of selected collections created by the 20 students during their third-year education, all of which had never been displayed in public because they were the works in the middle of experimentation—finding out to create their bachelor’s degree works. The charms of these works are diversity and appeal of shapes, techniques and unexpected material selecting. All these works mainly show artistic value more than just a fashion show on the runway, and will be a prototype for creating unique beauty in future.

Last but not least with a special fashion show, FASH by Srinakharinwirot University, presenting 14 collections created by the third-year students majoring in Fashion Design for Visual Design branch at Faculty of Fine and Applied Arts in Srinakharinwirot University. Their works reflect a concept of developing Thai wisdom, with various aspects, into clothes with creative and contemporary design.

It is another proud story for Siam Center The Ideaopolis after having playing a part in supporting and promoting young Thai designers’ talent, as well as encouraging new-gen students to have space to create and show abilities with no limits.
