Where To Shop For Womenswear In Bangkok
Bangkok’s shopping scene can certainly be an intimidating one. While it might be easier just to tell all women to head to BTS Skytrain stop Siam and hope for the best, we combed the city’s neighborhoods in search of the best womenswear – here are some of our favorites.
Lofty Bamboo Fairtrade
MBK is a fairly large and crowded mall, and if you are not careful, you might miss one of its best-hidden gems: Lofty Bamboo Fairtrade. This unique store sells everything from hammocks to hats, and their selection of women’s clothing offers shoppers a great variety of super light, colorful dresses and tops that are perfect for the hot weather.
Lofty Bamboo Fairtrade’s products are traditionally made by villagers in hopes of preserving traditions and natural environments in villages under Lofty Bamboo’s philosophy. These original handicrafts, in combination with their designs, make for some pretty cool outfits.

Lofty Bamboo Fairtrade, 2A13 2nd Floor, MBK Center, 444 Phayathai Road, Pathumwan, Bangkok, Thailand, +66 02 611 7121
Terminal 21 has everything a woman needs in order to find the perfect outfit. That being said, it is a huge mall, so we found the best shops to explore while you are there.

First, head to Tokyo on level one. This is where the majority of the shops with stylish women’s clothing can be found. For those of you searching for your inner punk, find Uncle Rock. This unique shop should be fairly easy to spot, being that it is probably the only vendor in Terminal 21 selling leather jackets and metal studded, see-through cover-ups.

If you are preparing for a fancy night out on the town, head to Fashion Agency. This floor, in general, has a wide variety of stores to browse through, all tailored towards womenswear.
BTS Skytrain stop Ari never fails to impress tourists in all aspects. This neighborhood has the best street food, the cutest cafés and the most stylish shopping opportunities. Head down to La Villa, taking exit four off the BTS, and a swanky, open-air market will greet you with vendors selling a wide variety of women’s clothing. Take a lap or two around La Villa, window-shopping all the best vendors’ wares.

La Villa, 356 Phahonyothin Road, Samsen Nai, Phayathai, Bangkok, Thailand, +66 02 660 9000
Siam is no stranger to the fashion world. You could come here and get lost in all of the stores and different boutiques it has. In order to avoid being overwhelmed, head to floor three. This is where the majority of the women’s clothing stores are. Feel free to explore, or head straight for Workshop. Founded in 2008, Workshop prides itself in creating a lifestyle brand for fashionable people. These simple but chic clothes are perfect for almost any occasion.

Across the way from Workshop is a store worth visiting, if not just to see the interior design. Wonder Anatomie has some pretty eccentric clothing to go along with its even more outrageous decorations. The ceiling is lined with cardboard skeletons, a stark contrast to the plain, concrete floors. The clothes are just as noteworthy as its décor, and all the pieces are very colorful, as well. Mr. Chalermkiat, the mastermind behind Wonder Anatomie, created these clothes after being inspired by human anatomy, and many of the pieces are handmade.

6 simple ways to shop sustainable fashion in Bangkok
Let’s face it: fashion is the worst.
At least when it comes to the environment, that is. More and more people are becoming aware that the way fashion is currently made, sourced, and consumed is having some terrible impacts on the environment. The chemicals used to grow, dye, launder and treat our clothes end up polluting rivers, as well as our water. Currently, our clothing accounts for around 3% of global production of CO2 emissions, according to The Carbon Trust. The list goes on, but the bottom line is: we need to take up some sustainable fashion habits.
There are a few ways you can help by making some adjustments and keeping a few things in mind when you’re shopping. And of course, there’s actually no reason your great style will have to be sacrificed when it comes to shopping sustainable fashion. Here are just a few ideas on the simplest things you can do that can make a positive difference to the planet, whilst still making sure you’re looking your best.
Fashion has the potential to change the world – so we better make sure it changes it for the better. Here’s how…
1. Shop secondhand
One of the best ways to shop sustainably is to turn fashion into a circular economy. Instead of clothes reaching the end of its life cycle, think of it as clothes simply reaching the end of its first use. By selling and buying secondhand, you give these clothes a second (or third, or fourth) life, which can save on so much energy, resources, and money that’s used to make a brand new piece of clothing. Thankfully, there are some really good and easy ways to find secondhand stores for gorgeous designer pieces — on Instagram alone there are hundreds of boutiques to choose from in Bangkok.
Second-hand shopping in Bangkok:
Chatuchak Market, Kamphaeng Phet 2 Road, Bangkok 10900. (Tues-Sun: 7am-6pm).
(un) FASHION Vintage Collection, Ekkamai Soi 10, Bangkok 10110. (11.30am-9pm).
Again & Again, Market Place Room B1A, Thonglor Soi 4, Bangkok 10110. (11am-9pm).
Talad Rod Fai Train Night Market, Srinakarin Soi 51, Bangkok 10250 (Thurs-Sun: 5pm-1am).
2. Shop vintage
Still can’t get bring yourself to wear someone else’s old clothes? It’s only a matter of shifting your perspective a little bit. Elevate the branding, add a couple of zeros to the price tag, and you can call it vintage! There are several places to shop vintage items in Bangkok too. From the luxurious rare items from Central Embassy’s The Vintage Store to the private dealers online, there are loads of rare designer items you can get your hands on. Not only do you support sustainability by choosing not to buy something “new”, but you could also be owning some extremely unique and wearable investments.
Vintage items at The Vintage Store, Central Embassy.
Vintage stores in Bangkok:
The Vintage Store, 2/F Central Embassy, Bangkok 10330. (10am-8pm).
The Trapeze Swingers, 15 Chana Songkhram, Bangkok 10200. (12pm-9pm. Closed Mondays).
Tokyo Joe, Sukhunvit Soi 69, Bangkok 10110. (10am-7pm).
Labellist Vintage Vibes, 2/F Gaysorn Village, Bangkok 10330 (10am-7pm).
3. Look for sustainable brands
Don’t get us wrong, you don’t always have to buy from other people’s wardrobes. If you’re really after something new, then there are still options for brands that are conscious of their environmental impacts. Stella McCartney, for one, uses only eco-friendly materials in not just her clothing but in the design of her stores too. Meanwhile, Thai brands such as Madmatter, Taktai, and Maison Craft are committed to only upcycling old fabrics to make new products. However, more and more mainstream fashion brands are taking on eco-centric collections. We’re huge fans of the pieces in the H&M Conscious collection, although the brand is aiming to make their entire product line 100% sustainable by 2030. Brands like Levi’s, Burberry, and COS are also joining the sustainable fashion movement.
H&M Conscious is available to purchase on their online store: www.th.hm.com/
4. Go to a clothes swap
There have been more and more clothes swapping events in Bangkok lately, as a movement towards raising awareness to lessen wasteful consumption in fashion. Earlier this year, the ‘Swap ’til You Drop!’ event hosted at The Home BKK saw hundreds of visitors in a single day and over 100kg of clothing brought and swapped. This is also one of the most fun and social ways to revamp your wardrobe without having to spend a single baht.
Swap ‘Til You Drop! is held every other month at The Home BKK (unless stated otherwise), as part of the Fashion Revolution Thailand movement. Follow them on Facebook and Instagram to stay updated.
5. Buy local
Thailand is known worldwide for our amazing textiles and quality craftsmanship. So when you buy from local artisans, producers or weavers, you’re not only getting some of the best quality products in the world — you’re also cutting down a lot of carbon emissions from importing products. After all, handmade clothes are the OG of sustainable fashion. Some of the most fashionable celebrities in Thailand like Pearypie are already making the move towards wearing Thai-made fabrics and ethically produced clothing.
Amata Chittasenee, better known as @Pearypie on social media, is a leader in the movement towards wearing local fabrics.
6. Join Fashion Revolution
Fashion Revolution is a global movement that aims to raise awareness about the significant social and environmental impact of the fashion industry. It’s a community that drives to encourage people to take up more responsible practices when it comes to fashion. There’s a FashRev group based right here in Thailand, and they’re very active in organising talks, workshops, and activities (including the clothes swaps we mentioned earlier). Follow them on social media or become a member to get more deeply involved.

Where to Buy Cheap Clothes in Bangkok, Thailand – Fashionable, Stylish and Cute – Tasty Thailand
Every year, millions of foreigners come to Bangkok, Thailand to buy cheap clothes. Thailand is famous worldwide as a place where you can buy cheap pants, shirts, jeans, t-shirts, skirts, silk suits, shorts, men’s suits and many other items of clothing.
But, if you’re not familiar with Bangkok, you’ll still need to know the best places to shop for cheap clothes. Shop at these wonderful places in Bangkok if you’re interested in buying cheap clothing, and you’ll soon be buying another suitcase.
Chatuchak Market – Also known as J.J. Market, Chatuchak is Bangkok’s local weekend market. With more than 15,000 stalls (it’s enormous!) the market sells everything, but it’s a particularly wonderful place to look for cheap clothes. Here you’ll find about 3,000 stalls that sell every type of clothing imaginable. From t-shirts to shorts, skirts to sweaters, jackets to pants, there’s everything here.
How to survive Chatuchak Market when you go — it’s huge, crowded and there are more than 13,000 stalls
You can find professional clothing as well as traditional Thai clothing. There are also hundreds of cool shops that sell one-of-a-kind clothing by young, local Thai designers and prices are not usually more than $5-$12 per item.
To get to Chatuchak Market, take the sky train to MoChit station and follow the crowds. It’s open on Friday evenings and all day Saturday and Sunday (until about 6 p.m.).
Mahboonkrong Mall (MBK) – MBK Mall is one of the best places to buy cheap clothes in Bangkok. It’s an enormous mall with 8 floors and all types of clothing are available here.
From brand names to local designers, you will find any type of cheap clothing you want. On the next to top floor, you’ll see traditional Thai clothing as well as t shirts, short, jeans, skirts, jackets etc. On the ground, first, second and third floors, there are tons of little boutique shops and larger shops that sell any kind of clothing imaginable.
Also, on these floors, there are several inexpensive tailors that can make you a skirt, a women’s suit, a man’s work suit, shirts, ties, – anything you want and all very cheaply.
MBK is right next to National Stadium sky train station (one the right hand side as you get off the train, you can’t miss it!)
Siam Square – Siam Square is the local university area and is flooded with university students at any time of the day and night. It’s also a great shopping area for clothes as they cater to the price-range of college students, and also have the latest, hip, fashionable clothing at inexpensive prices. T shirts, skirts, shorts, spaghetti strap tops, jeans, shoes, everything is available here. Also, if you go into some of the little alley ways, you’ll find lots of other stores that are designer stores (local young Thai designers) at very inexpensive prices.
The only drawback to Siam Square is, because Thais are small and these stores cater to young people, the sizes are small. If you are above a US size 10, you’re not likely to find anything to fit you here unfortunately.
Siam Square as at the Siam sky train station. It’s the area opposite all the malls (Siam Discovery Mall, Siam Paragon, Siam Centre etc.) but, as all you can see are tons of shops and lots of young Thais, it’s difficult to miss.
Bobae Market – Bobae Market is a clothesaholics’ paradise. Clothes are dirt cheap here, but you are expected to buy in bulk or wholesale (i.e.: three or four pieces at each stall). Prices are so cheap though ($1.50 per t shirt) that it’s easy to want to buy more than one item. Bobae has any clothing you would want but is specifically a great place for jeans, t shirts, shirts, blouses, skirts etc.
To get to Bobae, you can either take the boat from Siam Square (a bit difficult to find though, although one of the shopkeepers in any of the malls near Siam can tell you how to get there, and it is really fun on the boat on the klong) or, take a taxi.
3 Best Places to Buy Cheap Fashion / Clothes in Bangkok
I don’t know any city in the world that offers so much fashion shops, markets, outlets and malls for low prices like Bangkok. And I’ve been to all other capital cities in Southeast Asia. Bangkok has the reputation of the shopping paradise and similar to buying electronics in Bangkok it’s not always easy to know where to go for the widest offer and lowest prices of clothes of all kind.
I have put together a list of the best places to buy fashion in Thailand’s capital and note that the tourist markets in Silom and Sukhumvit or even Khaosan are not on the list as they sell all stuff from Buddha Statues to alive or dead animals but are for sure not the best place to go clothes-shopping.
They all don’t really have a large selection of fashion wear and what they have is generally 50% more expensive of what you find in the following places.
1. Platinum Fashion Mall
Thailand’s largest fashion shopping complex with more than 2,000 shops. At Platinum Fashion Mall in Bangkok’s Pratunam district you can buy anything from sports socks, beautiful dresses to business suits and it’s also extremely cheap, most of the stuff selling around wholesale prices. This place is packed with people at any time of the day.
2. Ratchada Train Market
The hugely popular night market in Ratchada starts to attract more and more tourists who want to experience the biggest outdoor market in downtown Bangkok. Located right behind the Esplanade Shopping Mall (Thailand Cultural Centre MRT Station), people love to come here to buy food and snacks or have a few beers and socialize in the atmospheric bars (see the upper part of the picture).
And besides all that, there are also countless of market stalls that sell all sorts of fashion and clothes products – t-shirts, pants, dresses, shoes etc.
If you want to buy not just fashion, but also any other type of thing you could possibly want to take home from your Thailand holiday – Chatuchak Weekend Market probably has it. With more than 11,000 vendors, this is the biggest market in all of Thailand and a tourist attraction itself.
The great thing about this place, apart from the fact that it’s conveniently located right at the Chatuchak MRT Station (or Bang Sue BTS Station), is that there is a nice park next to the market where you can buy snacks and relax. Also, they’ve recently started to open really atmospheric cafes and even bars at different spots of the market. A must visit, even if it’s always crowded and a little touristy.

As with all other kind of shopping in Bangkok, remember to always bargain and never buy things for the first price you get offered.
Video of Platinum Fashion Mall in Bangkok
I walked in and was greeted with such great enthusiasm. The materials are top notch (I upgraded) and the suits and dresses I had made are awesome. Can’t wait to show them off!
I bought 2 suits and tree blouses, it is very good. The service was excellent. I will continue to order from Holland.
Fancy dressman! Was very comfortable and fun. These guys are very good in their jobs. Got 3 amazing shirts for good price! Nothing more to say 💪🏻😁
Perfect tailored fit by your measurements.
3 minutes to measure you, next day suit or shirt ready.
Like it very much. Affordable price and broad choice of fabric.
Nice! I had a Cashmere and Merino wool three piece suit tailored to fit me like a glove for a portion of what this would cost me in Canada .Nice work.

The 10 Best Men’s Shopping Malls and Markets in Bangkok, Thailand
If you’re someone that enjoys shopping for moderately-priced fashions then I’m hoping this post can provide some convenience for you if you’re spending time in Bangkok, Thailand.
Like many shopping metropolises in the world, Bangkok has no shortage of the higher-end global fashion designers that are synonymous with luxury. And with luxury comes expense. Brand names like Balmain, Mochino, Vivienne Westwood and Karl Lagerfeld are dotted throughout Bangkok and finding them is a simple matter of knowing how to spell their names correctly and going to their website.
But what of moderately-priced fashion styles? Specifically, those local to Bangkok? if you’re into the men’s higher fashion and are comfortable with a Zara pricepoint, then Bangkok has a lot of options for you. Although there’s never nearly enough when compared to women’s choices,
Bangkok many layers work with ambiguity and femininity which allows for more innovative design and silhouettes usually reserved for the ladies. In BKK, you can find local designers from Thailand as well as designers from the Southeast Asia region — like Greyhound, Q Design and Play, Patricc Boyle, Boyplain and R’s by Zisbeth to name a few. Here’s where you can find high-fashion at a reasonable price point:
The 3 Best Men’s Shopping Destinations in Bangkok: Fashion
1a. Siam Center
Price Range: $$
Address/Location: 979 Rama 1 Road, Pathumwan
Hours: 10:00 – 22:00
Public Transit: Siam Station (BTS)
Telephone: +66 (0)2 658 1000
For as large as it is, it’s easy to miss Siam Center as it’s one huge mall next to several other large malls. Siam Center is across from Siam Square, and between Siam Discovery and Siam Paragon. Once you’re inside, you can experience the fashion mall that was rebooted in 2013. Specifically, pay attention to the two floors of independent designer shops and boutiques.
Local, up-and-coming designer boutiques and the designer collecitons can be found on the third floor of Siam Center. When we went recently, there was a standalone Pattric Boyle boutique. We also shopped extensively at Greyhound, Q Design & Play, and a variety of other local designers and fashion houses like The Selected and Gin & Milk. There are several unique men’s stores worth checking out over and over again. Definitely give Siam Center some time.
Price Range: $$
Address/Location: Ratchaprasong Intersection, across from Gaysorn and Erawan
Hours: 10:00 – 22:00
Public Transit: Siam or Chidlom Station (BTS)
Telephone: +66 (0) 431 4078
It’s really a coin flip between Siam Center and ZEN@CentralWorld as far as the best place to shop for affordable, high-fashion men’s clothing in Bangkok. CentralWorld in itself is a great shopping destination, but the specialized Zen@CentralWorld really pushes it up top. ZEN is designed for men that enjoy contemporary styles and “young-at-heart shoppers and those who appreciate world class style and fashion“. You can find those menswear styles on the 4th and 5th floor.
During our visits to BKK, we went HAM at Zen@CentralWorld as they were having a seasonal sale. Here, you’ll find some of our favorite Asian designers in QDAP, Bleach Project, BoyPlain and many other cutting-edge designers. You can get to ZEN via the overhead BTS walkways that connects Chit Lom and Siam stations.
1c. Terminal 21
Price Range: $-$$
Address/Location: Sukhumvit Road (between Soi 19 and 21)
Hours: 10:00 – 22:00
Public Transit: Asok Station (BTS)
Rounding out our trio of top shopping destinations for men’s clothing is Terminal 21, is the airport-inspired mall that has plenty of options when it comes to men’s clothing. With kiosks and small stores all over the London floor, you can spend a few hours just browsing all the independent shops and designers. When we went there were many independent designers, as well as a few of our favorites in Rs by Zibeth, Anello, Lime & Salt, and Russian Roulette. You can get to this large mall on Sukhumvit Road, near the Asoke intersection.
Those three large malls place a lot of focus on men’s fashion and ZEN, Terminal 21 and Siam Center should keep even the shoppiest of shoppers satisfied.
The Best of the Rest: Bangkok Men’s Shopping
4. Emquartier & Emporium
Price Range: $$$
Address/Location: 637 Sukhumvit Road, Bangkok
Hours: 10:00 – 22:00
Public Transit: Phrom Phong Station (BTS)
Run by the same group and a stone’s throw to one another, we included both Emporium and Emquartier in the same spot. While some malls place focus on attracting luxury brands, others try to fill their directories with fast fashion or independent local designers, the “EmDistrict” pulls off all of that. Of the two, we prefer Emquartier, which was opened in 2015. The newer mall showcases both innovative high-end fashion, urban street wear and local designers under one roof. Pay special attention to Qurator, their curated (get it?) Thai designer showcase, giving space to more than 60 Thai designer brands and new collections.
5. Siam Discovery
Price Range: $$$
Address/Location: Next to Siam Center, Pathumwan
Hours: 10:00 – 22:00
Public Transit: Siam Station (BTS)
Re-opened in mid-2016, the futuristic renovations made Siam Discovery more an experience than a mall. When we came here, we headed to Floor M (His Lab) with fashion brands for men and it was set up like a high-end department store a la Barneys. Though less-affordable than the stores before it, Siam Discovery’s men’s fashion featured a lot of higher-end independent designers and styles that captured our attention (and about two hours of our time). It’s worth a walk through or two.
6. Chatuchuk Weekend Market
Price Range: $
Address/Location: 35 acres in Chatuchak
Hours: Sat-Sun (09:00 – 18:00) Fridays (18:00 – 24:00)
Public Transit: Mo Chit Station (BTS)
Bring your sunscreen and prepare to spend hours at Chatuchak. There’s something for everyone at this famous sprawling weekend market that’s both popular with locals and tourists alike. For men’s clothing in particular, you’ll find stalls after stalls of fashion from t-shirts, sweatshirts, backpacks, shoes, and other fashions, you can shop all day and not see everything. Although there’s stuff everywhere, there are specific sections, generally you’ll find clothing and accessories in sections 2-6 and sections 10-26
When we visited recently, we stumbled across dozens of neighboring stalls selling vintage clothing (sections 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 22, 25, 26) just one of the many “districts” within the huge outdoor market. One’s shopping experience at Chatuchak really depends on where they decided to explore, their patience, ability to withstand the heat and willingness to find those diamonds in the rough. If you put in the effort, there are less-polished, affordable local designers to be had. With Chatuchak, you have to keep your eyes open. You could walk around for 3-4 hours and feel like you’ve didn’t make a dent. That’s because you haven’t. Again, bring sunscreen, wear comfy shoes and breathable clothing, cash, and plan on being there for a few hours to get the experience.
7. MBK Center
Price Range: $
Address/Location: Pathumwan Intersection, opposite Siam Discovery
Hours: 10:00 – 22:00
Public Transit: National Stadium (BTS)
Telephone: +66 (0)2 620 9000
Like Chatuchak, this sprawling indoor mall gives you the feeling of an outdoor market. And like Chatuchak, you’ll have to search for the affordable fashions. At MBK (shorthand for Ma Boon Khrong), there are a handful of stores and kiosks that sell on-trend, cheaper men’s fashions and designer knockoffs. At one end of the mall is a entrance to a mini-mall with hundreds of small kiosks selling trinkets, souvenirs, and fashions where you can negotiate prices with the sometimes-aggressive sellers. MBK certainly isn’t up-market as the nearby Siam Center or Siam Discovery, but if you have time, it’s a great place to find items like backpacks and t-shirts at a lower price point.
8. Siam Paragon
Price Range: $$-$$$
Address/Location: 991 Rama 1 Road, Puthumwan
Hours: 10:00 – 22:00
Public Transit: Siam Station (BTS)
Telephone: +66 (0)2 610 8000
If you’re a seasoned shopper looking for something different, regionally-influenced or quirky, Siam Paragon isn’t it. That said, Siam Paragon does traditional mall pretty well. Paragon doesn’t feature very many (or any) local or regional designers unless they’re big brands – there’s luxury floor with very high-end brands Prada, Louis Vuitton, Burberry, Fendi, Chanel and Givenchy. For a lower price point with more widely-recognizable brand names, there are also the male mainstays in Zara, TopMan, Massimo Dutti, H&M and Uniqlo. Check out their directory here.
Unlike many countries, Bangkok is a heaven for men’s fashions, particularly moderately-priced men’s style. I don’t think I’ve been anywhere else where there’s this many affordable, yet high-fashiony choices for men. You just have to look in the right places.
10 Thai Famous Fashion Designers – Thai Fashion Designers
Thai Fashion Designers – Where To Find Thai Fashion In Bangkok
Thai fashion is becoming a worldwide sensation. In recent years, celebrities from Michelle Obama to Katy Perry have raised the flag in honor of Bangkok’s designers. While well-known designers like Thakoon Panichgul and Koi Suwannagate are taking steps down the red carpet, there are many other names worth recognizing if you’re looking for something special.
While smart stylists are gazing at the fashion scene in Bangkok, these brands aren’t always to be found at home, and unlike Knightsbridge or 5th Avenue, investing in an amazing dress or pair of shoes won’t leave you in trouble.
Disaya trained in London, and this is revealed in her designs, embellished with Thailand combined with British practicality, the collection includes not only gorgeous evening dresses, but also clothes suitable for work (and in cold weather), from the best European fabrics and with a talent for Thai craftsmanship.Her most famous piece to date is the dress worn by Amy Winehouse in the foreground of her Back to Black album, but her designs have also been worn by Jennifer Lopez, Kelly Osbourne and Agness Dean.

The collection ranges from items that would be fit for afternoon tea to suits and skirts made in the style of the 70s, bright red and yellow with bold patterns. Kloset made such a big mark on the Bangkok scene that they even designed a scooter so mods can handle traffic in style.

Bangkok Men’s Fashion
Bangkok men’s fashion is growing in quality, confidence and scope.While it is still true that Thai designers draw inspiration from what is happening in the more famous fashion capitals, many names are now mixing elements from around the world with their styles, and the city has a vibrant fashion scene. The wide range of styles attracts international interest, and shopping for local brands means you are unlikely to notice your favorite shirt on the streets of London or New York. From street market stalls to glitzy shopping malls, Bangkok’s men’s fashion has never been more successful.On our list, we have a great mix of our favorite places for men to shop in Bangkok.
Taking cues from the clean lines and bold colors of Korean fashion that have found favor in Asia and beyond, Dapper is the shining light of Bangkok’s menswear scene.Their formal wear range spans the line between business lunch and cocktail, with sleek and shiny lapels and contrasting cuffs. Their casual line may be overly dainty for Westerners, but the chinch and dicky bow look has been popular in Bangkok for some time now. Dapper is also renowned for their footwear, and here you can get a pair of leather shoes for 4,000 baht. Dapper stores are growing, but Central World has a full range.

2 Vanilla Gate Gala
This flirty and unique label sells custom handcrafted t-shirts and scarves with empowering, compassionate and fun slogans.A pencil colored dinosaur, an angel on your shoulder inviting you to “Pray More, Worry Less,” or simply HAPPINESS rendered in bright orange are just a few of the offerings in this little stall in the monstrous Chatuchak weekend market. The business has to be good because they have opened a second outlet in Chatuchak and we can’t help but feel that a step into their own store is just around the corner. Bangkok is overflowing with printed T-shirts, but the designs at the Vanilla Gate Gala are unlike anything we’ve seen and despite its diminutive size, it can be difficult to narrow down your favorite designs to just two or three.Prices start at 400 baht and there are discounts if you buy more. This can be tricky to find, but if you can get your hands on a map then head to Section 4 of Shop 053.
Location: Chatuchak Market

Everything they produce in Painkiller is produced in small batches from their own workshop, so you can rest assured of something unique. Their only store is located in the trendy Siam Center in the Siam district of Bangkok.

This high street label has many branches all over Bangkok and has seen steady growth, mainly thanks to its affordable denim line (you can pick up a pair of jeans under 2,000 baht), but their range of plaid fabrics is also popular. Two of the best retail outlets can be found at the Terminal 21 Entertainment Mall and the trendy Siam Center.

Trendy anytime, anywhere: youth fashion in Thailand

What is Thai Style? Does it look like freaky Japanese? Or more low-key Chinese? Or does it look like a sugary Korean at all? You will be surprised, but the Thai style absorbs all of the above, and is seasoned with the famous exoticism of this country, giving out something amazing, but not gaudy at all.
Fashion in Thailand – what is it like?
It would seem – here it is, eternal summer, you don’t have to crawl out of slates and T-shirts! In the provinces and in the resorts, it may be so, but it is worth going to Bangkok, visiting the central streets – and then you will see that the capital Thais are not so simple.As we have already said, falling under the influence of Asian neighbors, the fashionistas of Thailand form something unusual – probably the innate taste, the rich culture of Thailand and traditionalism are affecting. As a result, it turns out that the image is not overgrown with grace, pretentiousness and piquancy, combining everything in moderation, and making Thais one of the most stylish and at the same time “down to earth” Asian nations.
Special thanks to Thai designers for this – they very quickly adapt Western and Eastern trends, forming fashion collections in just a matter of days. But this is not theft or plagiarism – designers are only inspired by trends, but do not copy cleanly. It turns out a paradoxical picture: Western designers go to Thailand for inspiration and ideas, which in turn are the Thai rethinking of their own (Western designers) ideas.
How to dress in Thailand?
What are we all around the bush? Let’s try to compose a specific portrait of a Thai fashionista (or fashionista), and how it differs so much from the rest of the Eastern style lovers.
- First of all – handmade. Probably, the love for hand-made in style is the result of the Thai’s love for hand-made in general. Not a single fashionable Thai bow can do without hand-made products.
- Hats. Caps, hats, panamas, tiaras – all this will certainly adorn the heads of Thais, who cannot boast of a stylish hairstyle. Oh yeah, stylish hairstyles are also an integral part of Thai fashion. P gray color, long hair for both girls and guys – the trend of 2016.
- Clothing must be tight. And with designer prints. For girls, ruffles and bows are required – in the Korean style. On the other side of the Thai-style barricades, on the contrary, there are moderate and calm clothes from Western manufacturers: Mango, Zara, H&M.
- But the shoes of those who love a bright style, that of the traditional, are unusual. And the more unusual, the better. By food is a separate fetish item for Thai mods.
Clothes from Thailand: what to buy and where to look?
Have you made a rough image? It turns out something strange and ridiculous, isn’t it? Well, this is in words, in fact, the appearance of Thai youth is very, very harmonious. You can verify this by going, for example, to the Siam Discovery Center in Bangkok – there has never been such a place that lovers of modern style did not gather in this place. In addition, you can meet them near small boutiques on Siam Square, as well as in House RCA. It is there, and not on Walking Street or the streets of Phuket, that you will see Thai style in all its glory.
Well, where without fashionable shopping in Thailand ! In shopping centers in Bangkok, such as Siam Paragon, MBK, Central World and the aforementioned Siam Discovery Center, you can not only observe adherents of the unique Thai style, but also buy your favorite designer things.Accessories, clothing, shoes from Thailand are all made by skilled craftsmen and are sold very inexpensively. D Even if you are not interested in exotic style, you will definitely find some more traditional wardrobe items from Thailand
