The 12 best moments from Bangkok International Fashion Week 2019
A glittery storm of high heels, camera flashes, and perfect jaw-lines, Bangkok International Fashion Week 2019 has come and gone before you’d even finished saying its name. Over the four days, the city celebrated 15 incredibly talented designers, 10 eye-opening shows, and thousands of killer outfits both on and off the runway. So, is it really so bad if we’re already feeling a little nostalgic about all the glitz and glamour? Either way, we’ve already gone back to reflect on all the shows this year and picked out some of our favourite moments. And to celebrate its 12th year running, we’ve decided to go Oscars style and award 12 ‘Best’s from the shows and events of BIFW2019. From ‘Best Set Design’ to ‘Best Model’, here are 12 winning highlights from Bangkok International Fashion week 2019.

Best show detail: Pichita’s sandbags
No show last week had more fingers pointing or sly smiles cracking than Pichita‘s on Sunday. It was all down to a subtle but irreverent gimmick: for the show’s wild desert theme presenting a collection titled ‘The Golden Hour’, the models strutted down the sandy catwalk with handbags that were leaking sand through small holes at the bottom. (What did you think when we said sandbags?) Beautifully trickling down like streamers, the feature fitted brilliantly with the long silhouettes of the clothes as well as the rocky theme. A truly golden little detail.

Best colours: P.Mith
Colour palettes can be underestimated when it comes to presenting a fashion collection. Those with coherent and consistent themes tend to be more memorable, more appealing, and more approachable. So that’s precisely why P.Mith‘s show on Friday was such a success. With their recurrent mixing and matching between bold yellows and more muted neutrals like beige and grey, P.Mith showed a collection with distinctive character, an acute sense of style, and an artistic modern vision.
Best set design: Self-Portrait x Vatanika
Interviewing them a couple of weeks back, we were told that we’d only understand why Han Chong (Self-Portrait) and Vatanika titled their collection ‘After the Lovers‘. It left us all sleepless in suspense, but now we’ve seen their show which opened Fashion Week on Thursday, we’re ready to do some real analysis. The runway was split down the middle by a long and tall mirror, so while models walked on both sides, the audience on either side could only see the one model and their reflection on their own side. Sound confusing? Don’t worry – the theory is that maybe (and we’re taking a shot in the dark here) showing the audience two identical figures (one of them a reflection) is like showing two lovers becoming one? Scratch that, we have no idea. It was a really cool set anyway.

Best fashion item: Issue’s blazer
Can any fashion brand compete with Issue‘s masterful ownership of graphic and logo prints? We think not. Always bursting with daring colour, Issue’s adaptation of the conventionally boring blazer is a sartorial gift to us all. There were a fair few variations, but what was consistent was the signature flamboyance, though always without the vulgarity. The blazers seen at Thursday’s show were bold, brash, and fun. We’ll take the lot.

Best debut show: Collaborative Fashion Innovation Project Fash by CCI (College of Creative Industry) Srinakarinwirot University
On the Visionary Atrium stage at Siam Centre, fashion graduates presented their work for the first time ever. Out of all the brilliant and fresh new designs that strutted into the light last week, two collections presented by students from Srinakarinwirot University stood out most with their mature yet youthfully-minded take on Thai heritage fabrics. With impressive vision and technical skills, the students managed to interpret traditional weaved textiles from Lopburi into more urban wear. There’s also a nostalgia in their colour palettes which feeds into a trendily retro 90s aesthetic – irresistible to any fashionable millennial.

Most fun to watch: Sor-Kor-Bor Warship by Prapakas
If neither Prapakas‘s eclectic and characterful outfits, nor the outrageous detachable moustaches were entertaining enough, then perhaps the heart-warming as well as contagious dance routine managed to put a smile on your face. There were smiles aplenty on all the models who walked the show at least, and that’s always refreshing to see. Isn’t fashion supposed to be fun, after all?

Best model: Matcha Mosimann in the Pichita show
She’s one of the most in-demand Thai models for a good reason. Aside from her flawless genetic architecture, Miss Mosimann also possesses a truly professional and well-spirited character. This was really put to the test in the Pichita show, in which Matcha deserves huge respect for somehow managing to walk so gracefully down a steep ramp and a sandy runway while wearing not only stiletto heels, but also a vision-obstructing headpiece which was dripping water down her floor length dress. No big deal? We haven’t finished: near the end of the runway, one of the model’s shoes slipped off. So, since bending down to put it back on was completely out of the question, Matcha simply put on a sneaky smile and did the rest of the walk with the shoe in her hand as if coolly strolling along the beach. A real trooper.

Best dress: Kanapot Aunsorn
A brazen creation of the talented contemporary designer Kanapot Aunsorn, this rich, alluring, spicy feather dress brings together ritzy sensuousness and classy elegance. Wearing beautiful hair jewellery, Sammy Cowell supremely modelled the dress and added to it her personal air of fierceness. It is a masterfully crafted look that seems fit for a museum exhibition yet also ready to go for a night of dancing.

Best makeup: M.A.C. for Tube Gallery
A special mention just has to go to the M.A.C. team who worked backstage all the way through the week to complete all the magnificent runway looks. For the Tube Gallery show, subtitled ‘More is More’, the M.A.C. crew had everyone in awe of this bold glitter eye look that suited the theme label pretty perfectly.

Best overall womenswear: Milin FRONT ROW
Our jaws were floored for Milin‘s floor-length evening dresses last Saturday. Designed with a purpose to make women feel special, these gowns were samples of the kind of creations Milin’s FRONT ROW, the brand’s exclusive made-to-order line, can offer. No matter how bold your choice of colour might be, or how extravagant your choice of fabric, Milin FRONT ROW’s show proved that they will always tailor the best out of any combination you throw at them.

Best overall menswear: Fri27Nov
Presenting an agile collection, the eclectic Fri27Nov moved amazingly dextrously between the funkiness of 80s disco colours and the Romanticism of men’s outfits that could make a grown woman swoon. The genius of the former category was that even though the colours might appear daringly vibrant and experimental, they’re actually quite approachable and surprisingly wearable. As for the second category, the key is in the balance between an irresistible sweet charm and a slightly dangerous bad-boy attitude. Gentlemen, please allow us to direct you to a Fri27Nov store.
Best finale: Tube Gallery
Ok, so they had the pretty obvious advantage of being the closing show for the whole of Bangkok Fashion Week. But they didn’t disappoint did they? With show-stopping outfits, complete with monumental headpieces, Tube Gallery also featured the singer Gam Wichayanee as one of their models. She then of course broke into a fabulous song and dance at the show’s finish, ensuring everyone’s seamless move into the afterparty.

Thai protesters stage ‘people’s runway’ in downtown Bangkok against princess’ fashion brand
BANGKOK: Protesters gathered in Bangkok’s business district of Silom on Thursday (Oct 29) to voice their opposition against a royal fashion brand belonging to King Maha Vajiralongkorn’s daughter, Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana.
The princess’ fashion brand Sirivannavari was scheduled to showcase its autumn/winter 2020-2021 collection at 8pm on the same day in the “French Flair Runway” show at Mandarin Oriental in Bangkok.

The protest on Thursday adopted the theme of “People’s Runway” and took place on Silom Road, starting from the Sri Maha Mariamman Temple. It is a satire on the princess’ fashion business.
As night fell, protestors spoke out against Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha’s government and repeated their calls for monarchy reform, with some expressing their dissatisfaction through performances.

Ahead of the rally, organisers had announced the gathering plan on social media. They also cited an earlier local media report which allegedly detailed Thailand’s national budget Bill for 2020 and allocations worth more than 29 billion baht (US$929 million) set aside for the monarchy.
These included a budget of 13 million baht for the Department of International Trade Promotion to exhibit products of the Sirivannavari brand in foreign countries.

The protest on Thursday marked another challenge to Thailand’s monarchy, which is protected by the strict lese majeste law. The law punishes whoever defames, insults or threatens the King, the Queen, the Heir-apparent or the Regent with imprisonment of three to 15 years.

The sign refers to a local media report on the 2020 national budget bill and the 13 million baht allocation to promote Princess Sirivannavari’s fashion brand. (Photo: Pichayada Promchertchoo)
On Monday, protesters marched to the German embassy in Bangkok to submit letters for the German government, asking them to investigate whether King Maha has exercised political power during his extended stays in Bavaria.
Protesters also demanded clarification from Germany on whether the King is required to pay inheritance tax as stipulated by German law, after inheriting a fortune from his father, the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej.
On Monday, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas told reporters the government was following developments in Thailand and that it was aware of the demonstrations.

The demonstration on Thursday is part of Thailand’s youth-led movement, which has been protesting against Prayut’s government for months. They are calling for an end to his rule, charter amendment and reform of the monarchy.
Prayut staged a coup in 2014 to topple a democratically government of Yingluck Shinawatra and controlled Thailand for five years, before an election in 2019 installed his political party to government.

On Tuesday, the prime minister dismissed calls from opposition parties to resign at a parliament session he had called to discuss months of protests.
This came after he addressed the nation last week and called for a parliamentary solution to the ongoing rift in society.
“The protestors have made their voices and views heard. It is now time for them to let their views be reconciled with the views of other segments of Thai society through their representatives in parliament,” Prayut said.
“Let us respect the law and parliamentary democracy, and let our views be presented through our representatives in parliament.”

Thailand protesters take to street to mock fashion show | Taiwan News
BANGKOK (AP) — Pro-democracy demonstrators in Thailand returned Thursday to the capital’s business district, staging something akin to a street fair to bring attention to their contention that the country’s monarchy holds too much power and influence.
Their rally on the city’s Silom Road was billed as a counterpoint to a fashion show being held Thursday evening by Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana, a daughter of King Maha Vajiralongkorn.
The princess is a fashion designer and has several shops at malls and shopping arcades in Bangkok selling her luxury goods.
A large crowd that gathered after working hours took over a portion of the street, looking at a displays of artwork and posters, serious and satirical, and listening to mostly impromptu speeches.
Sarcasm and satire have played a major role in recent protests, as was the case again Thursday as a red carpet was unrolled on the street to serve as a fashion runway for men and women to vamp in front of an amused crowd.
The student-led protesters have been holding rallies almost every day, attracting crowds on short notice that sometimes exceed 10,000.
They want Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha to step down, the constitution to be amended to make it more democratic, and reforms to make the monarchy’s activities more transparent and accountable.
Prayuth first became prime minister in a military government after staging a coup as army commander in 2014, and continued in office last year after a general election held under a new constitution and other laws enacted during military rule to disadvantage existing political parties.
Prayuth has said he will not leave the job under pressure, but his government has indicated it is amenable to have Parliament consider amending the constitution.
The protest movement also charges that King Vajiralongkorn wields an inordinate amount of power in what is nominally a democracy under a constitutional monarchy. The palace controls a fortune that is estimated to be at least $40 billion, making it the world’s richest royal family.
The monarchy has long been considered an untouchable institution, revered by a large part of the population and protected by a lese majeste law that mandates a three-to-15-year prison term for anyone found guilty of defaming the monarch and his immediate family.
The criticism of the royal institution by the protest leaders, low-key at first but now increasingly outspoken, has stunned many Thais, since the subject has long been one not discussed in public.
On Tuesday, protesters rallied outside the German Embassy to present a letter to the ambassador asking his government to investigate whether King Vajiralongkorn is carrying out political activities during his frequent visits to Germany.
Thai royalists have recently been holding counter-demonstrations, but so far they have lacked the numbers and enthusiasm of the pro-democracy activists.
King Vajiralongkorn in the past week has made several unusual public appearances, walking along with Queen Suthida and other members of his family to greet crowds of faithful monarchists who gathered to see him. These events have been captured on smart phone videos and spread widely on social media.
90,000 Pattaya International Fashion Week
One of the brightest events in the bustling Pattaya is Pattaya International Fashion Week, which has been held in Thailand since 2010 with the support of the government, the Royal Family and the Pattaya City Hall.
More recently, Pattaya Fashion Week was not taken seriously by either viewers or critics. But lately, this event has begun to rapidly gain momentum and arouse increased interest. It is not for nothing that the Thai government hopes to make Pattaya the center of fashion in Southeast Asia in the near future. And they have every chance of it! That only is the podium, installed in 2010, 1680 meters long, which immediately got into the Guinness Book of Records. And that was just the beginning.
Thailand has everything to really win the trust of fashionistas and experts not only in Asia, but also in Europe. After all, it is here that the highest quality fabrics are produced, which are purchased by designers from all over the world for tailoring elite clothes.
Why Pattaya? Recently, the authorities have been making great efforts to turn this city from a sex capital into a world capital of developed tourism and recreation, as well as a center for holding events significant for the country. Today Pattaya already has a developed infrastructure, there are a large number of hotels, shops and shopping centers, which represent all the brands that are in Bangkok. This, and not only, attracts an increasing number of tourists from all over the world to Pattaya for shopping.In the future, the most modern skyscrapers will be built here, and this year two large water parks will open at once. Investments are pouring in here. All this is quite enough to build a new Asian high fashion industry on fertile soil.
The Centralfestival and Royal Garden Plaza shopping malls have traditionally become the main venues for the fashion week.
The Next Big Designer Competition
The Next Big Designer competition is regularly held as part of Pattaya International Fashion Week.The main goals of this event are to attract young people to the design field and to support young talents among Thai fashion designers. For the latter, the government assists in obtaining patents, assists in organizing shows at the international level and strongly supports the development of new Thai brands.
The project was organized with the support of the Rakchat Group, which organized fashion shows of both national and world level. It includes Fashion TV, Elite Model Management and Artiste Model Agency.
90,000 Thailand inspires designers of Paris Fashion Week
We are used to the fact that modern designers are inspired by different architectural objects, the nature of remote corners of the planet, stones, birds, flowers or fruits, masterpieces of painting, whole layers of history and culture of different countries. But speaking of countries and continents, Africa, China, Japan, India, Russia and many others immediately pop up. Thailand came to the attention of designers only last year and immediately with a big scandal.Let me remind you that not so long ago Demna Gvasalia was appointed to the post of creative director of the Balenciaga Fashion House, and he immediately decided to radically change what had been created for decades. You can treat his creations in different ways, but now it’s not about that. The main scandal with his name and the name of the House was associated with the use of bag-bags in the Fall 2016 Ready-To-Wear collection, which, in shape, size and, most importantly, color combination, completely copy traditional Thai bag-bags, not one popular in everyday life among ordinary Thais for a decade.

Six months have passed, and on the catwalk of the main Paris Fashion Week, Maitre (I’m not afraid of this word) Giorgio Armani, under the auspices of one of his many lines, presented the Emporio Armani Spring 2017 Ready-To-Wear collection, which does not just use a few elements from Thai culture, and, it seems, it glorifies and exalts what from time immemorial was worn by the people of Siam, and now the people of Thailand.
What can we see in his collection, which was presented to the general public only yesterday? I’ll start with traditional Thai prints in the form of an elephant covered with a bedspread and embroidery on silk in the form of a fan.Further we can see the classic Thai harem pants, which are sold on every corner for 100 baht apiece, but they are made of high quality silk with hand-made embroidery. The silhouettes of the individual women’s blazers are reminiscent of traditional Thai formal wear. Silk dresses in classic Thai style with elephant print to highlight the neckline.
If you look at the entire collection, you will see a stunning range of colors. It seems that Giorgio Armani has sung an ode to traditional Thai clothing colors.Here is the blue, fashionable next season, reminiscent of the ocean water on a rainy day, and soft green, similar to the color of a fern under the canopy of a tropical forest, and a delicate cream, similar to the sand of tropical beaches of the west coast, as well as the traditional bright and rich purple color. found throughout the Kingdom, the color of orchids.
Giorgio Armani took traditions and embodied them in excellent technique and quality, and since the people of Thailand are very proud of their country and love it, there is no doubt about the success of this collection, all lovers of rest in the Kingdom can also provide support for it, because it is so nice dress in amazing quality harem pants and remember the sunset on the beach when you were wearing something like that.

90,000 Creative Director Q Design and Play
The Q Design and Play brand can hardly be called young, but outside of Thailand, few people know about it.Nonetheless, Prafat Sombunsitti, co-founder and creative director of Q Design and Play, promises to launch an online store almost tomorrow that will finally allow international customers to purchase hard-to-find clothing directly. We spoke with Prafat about the Thai fashion industry and sorted out the designer’s relationship with the international market.
Q Design and Play SS 2014 “Culture Revolution”
Prafat Sombunsitti attended the Catholic Assumption University, where he studied graphic design.After graduating from university, Sombunsitti got into the marketing agency Ogilvy & Mather, worked there for two years as an art director and decided to launch his own clothing brand. The techniques taught by the founder of Q Design and Play at the university were very handy: graphic design has become an integral part of the brand – it is used by Prafat throughout the process of creating a collection, from drawing and composing collages to transferring them to clothing. As the designer admits, he does not experience difficulties due to the lack of specialized education: “I have an assistant who helps at the stage of collection production, and a partner who deals with HR, administrative and financial aspects of the matter.”The rest of the staff consists of 11 people, of which three are designers and 8 are salespeople. It is Prafat’s responsibility to design and control the entire production.
Q Design and Play SS 2015 “Mars Plastic”
Prafat founded Q Design and Play with Ekkapum Tricheruzmi in 2010. On the recommendation of friends who were already familiar with the Bangkok fashion industry, the guys found a suitable factory.The first collections were sold at night markets, a local attraction favored by guides and travel brochure makers. The brand was advertised only on social networks: many of the current customers began their acquaintance with Q Design and Play just then. Sombunsitti, like any modern entrepreneur, has great sympathy for social networks and online promotion. For the last show, for example, models were searched for through an ad on a Facebook page: “This year we decided to select new faces who are not affiliated with any of the agencies.It seems like a very fresh idea to us. ”
It seems to me that advertising through social networks is an important thing that every brand should not forget about today: most of the customers are constantly online and more likely to receive information through Facebook and Instagram than through books and magazines.
To make production commercially viable, the Q Design and Play brand produces two collections – Design and Basiq, differing in quality, concept and price.In Thailand, according to the designer, Basiq products are preferred, while Design is popular in the international market. “For the Basiq line,” explains Sombunsitti, “we only use cotton fabrics, and all of the items in this collection are quite simple, echoing the silhouettes of basic men’s clothing.” Design items can be made from any high quality material. The technology of creation is more complex: “In the work on one jacket, we use several techniques at once: digital printing, screen printing, and processing of various materials to create a new one.”
Q Design and Play Basiq SS 2016 “Ranger”
2013 was a turning point in the history of the brand. Then Prafat was invited to participate in Seoul Fashion Week. Korean designers were already being followed by the global fashion community, and getting to Seoul gave Q Design and Play the opportunity to gain that attention. And so it happened: they wrote about the brand in Monocle magazine. “This is how foreigners learned about us.We have expanded our client base, which contributed to entering the international market. ” Now they write about them in local Vogue, Wallpaper and Hamburger magazine, and Hypebeast and Fucking Young publish their lookbooks on their pages. Such a run up does not bother the designer at all:
Each magazine is important, because they all expand our client base in their own way.I personally consider Wallpaper the coolest magazine in Thailand because they support any design-related initiative.
Looking at the portfolio of the brand, you might think that Prafatu is not sitting still, and whenever possible, he applies to participate in some fashion week. At first, it was such an expansion into the markets of neighboring countries (Q Design and Play shows were held in Harbin, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta), and later a cautious penetration into Europe (last fall, they presented a collection as part of Vienna Fashion Week). In fact, it turned out that this is not entirely true:
Organizers from South Korea, Malaysia, Indonesia and China invited us to participate in local fashion weeks. We didn’t have to pay anything for participation. Otherwise, we would not agree.
However, the most useful for them at the moment is Elle Fashion Week in Thailand.Here, according to Prafat, the most important people in the industry gather.
Q Design and Play Basiq FW 2015
Last year, Q Design and Play took part in the Vogue Who’s On Next project. The competition, aimed at supporting young brands, is held in different countries of the world, but for Thai designers this opportunity appeared only two years ago. For the first time, one of Prafat’s friends participated in the show.Noticing the professional growth of his colleague, Prafat also applied for participation. He was among the eight finalists, but he never got the grand prize of one million baht and the annual expert consultation. Still, the experience of participation helped a lot:
This is more of a business competition than a design competition. Now we better represent the identity of our brand, we know the mechanisms of its development, as well as how it needs to be promoted.It’s also a great way to attract new clients and the attention of other organizations – many people write to us and offer to cooperate.
As for the support from the state, the designer speaks rather warmly about the policy towards the fashion industry. “Every year in Thailand there are new projects to support young designers,” he comments on his statement that “Thailand is a country of opportunities”, “So even if you don’t have a specialized education, but you have talent, you can become a part of the industry.” …One of such government initiatives is the international Biff & Bil fair, within which the Designer’s Room project has existed since 2002, where newcomers are taught the intricacies of organizing product exports and strategies for entering the world market.
Q Design and Play SS 2016 “Royal”
As a result, a strong competition has formed in the fashion industry in Thailand – new names appear in it every now and then.But even a well-designed system can have some glitches. Thailand Fashion Week works in an amazing way: most of the local designers show the existing collections in order to increase sales, which you will not find on the catwalks of London or Paris. “International Fashion Weeks are aimed at getting buyers to see new collections. This may be the reason why they are not interested in Thailand Fashion Week, ”Prafat concludes correctly.
Q Design and Play FW 2015 “Father and Mother I Love You”
Q Design and Play products are now available in three stores in Bangkok and are also sold online.The guys have chosen the path of gradual development, and so far they want to consolidate their positions in the local market.
I would like to fully understand branding, design, production, quality and sales before expanding and competing with international brands. I won’t mind competing with someone like Opening Ceremony or Undercover.

90,000 Thailand Returns Two-Week Tourist Quarantine
90,026 90,025 Since the beginning of April, the number of new cases of COVID-19 infection in the kingdom has more than doubled.This was the reason for the government decision to return the previous terms of mandatory quarantine for arriving tourists – 14 days instead of 10. The changes come into force on May 1.
FROM MAY 1, TOURISTS ARRIVING IN THAILAND MUST PASS THE 14-DAY QUARANTINE
The Thai authorities are returning a two-week quarantine for tourists arriving in the country. The royal newspaper Bangkok Post reported this with reference to the representative of the state center for the management of the situation with COVID-19 (CCSA) Tavisilpa Visanuyotin.
If permission to enter the country was received before May 1, and the trip should take place before May 6, then isolation will have to stay from seven to ten days, depending on the presence or absence of vaccination, the Thai media write. Recall that the Russian Sputnik V vaccine has not yet been approved in Thailand, the mandatory quarantine for Russian tourists in this case is 10 days.
Tourists who receive permission to enter Thailand after May 1 inclusive will have to spend two weeks in quarantine.This rule will also apply to those who have a certificate of vaccination.
TERMS OF VALIDITY OF THE INNOVATION UNKNOWN AT THE MOMENT
In the Russian office of the Tourism Administration of Thailand, TAT confirmed the information, noting that the duration of the innovation is currently unknown.
Recall that the period of mandatory 14-day paid quarantine was reduced by the decision of the Government of the Kingdom from April 1 to 10 days.
THAILAND WILL PURCHASE SATELLITE V
Experts do not exclude that in the current situation, the plan of the kingdom’s authorities to open Phuket to foreign tourists from July 1 will not be implemented.This development is not excluded by the Minister of Tourism and Sports of Thailand Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn.
Meanwhile, experts do not lose hope for the early opening of the popular island for vaccinated, including Russian, tourists. At the beginning of this week, the ambassador of the kingdom in Moscow Sasivat Wongsinsavat said: Thailand will purchase 1 million doses of the Sputnik V vaccine.
