Live a free life on the isolated island far from the complex world, one couple from a rush and modern world, primitively stucked in a mist of the sun and a dash of the sea, waiting for life to show them its meaning.
Nat Prakobsantisuk and Daneenart Burakasikorn bring out the images that evoke the past to the present among Orang Laut people in the ancient-sea Gypsies village of Lunta Island “Sangkha-U” which means stingray in the native tongue.
Hailing from the Northeastern province of Buriram, Wisharawish Akarasantisook rises to become one of Thailand’s most promising young designers in early 2010s. Amidst the wave of heavy-budgeted fashion stellars, Wisharawish’s approach to design remains utmost fundamental – more a form of self expression than business, and rather a creative exploration than a career. He contemplates the abstract, and extracts its very essence into the material form through technical experiment, the latter at times becoming the main narrativeof his fashion design.
Championing technical mastery, immaculate handicrafts and intricate details on pattern, Wisharawish plays with repetition of forms and geometric shapes. His expressive design oeuvre that engages the viewers’ reaction is an aftermath of his background in dramatic arts. Wisharawish’s collections are a dialogue between designer and his clothes, and then between the clothes and their viewers. Fashion becomes a narrative, anda platform for all involved to share their interpretations and understandings. This time, in his “SImpliCity” collection, Wisharawish uses simple to best accentuate the immaculate details of craftsmanship of his materials, such as Batik de Nara from Pattani ,Ikat “Tammi” from Khonkhaen, and Denim silk from Surin
