Fashion designer Monlada Pongpanit takes the plaudits at the end of her exclusive fashion show at Zen
Monlada has gone back 100 years for the inspiration for her new designs in the Freedomz Collection, which was presented to an enthusiastic audience in an exclusive fashion show at Zen’s event gallery at CentralWorld in Bangkok.
The collection expresses the two different sides of love, with the recent anniversary of the Titanic disaster providing the motivation to recreate the look of the era.
Prominent features that were found in female costumes during the 1912 period, the same time as the Titanic event, have been used, with corsets and dresses that accentuate the female aesthetic shape reworked for the modern age.
Celebrities such as M.R. Srikamrung Yukol, Srikanya Sakdidej Panupan, Napassanan Pasawongse, Prakasit Phornprapha, M.L. Atthadit Diskul, Anandadvip Chayangkul Na Ayutthaya and Akanit Wichiencharoen took to the catwalk to help Monlada showcase her latest looks.
