    The go-to fashion brand for petite ladies

    Muse, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 09/12/2017

    » Sweet and petite, Rassarine "Kathy" Tanachaiwattanapokin makes the kind of clothes that are perfect for small, dainty women. Although her feminine brand, Made of Fabric, has been around since 2011, it was only this season that the founder/designer presented her autumn/winter collection, "Dreamless Romance", with a big, rosy splash at CentralWorld. With a childhood spent around fabrics and a master's degree in fashion from Istituto Maragoni, Rassarine has turned her passion into a popular label -- so much so that Chinese tourists make her store a stop on their travel itineraries. Using herself as the prototypical model, you'll be sure to always find itsy-bitsy pieces here (Kathy loves short hemlines because they make legs look longer). We talked to the designer about her brand's history and why the girlie girls love it.

    Disney for days

    Muse, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 06/08/2016

    » Two American things Thais really like come together this season. As one of the exclusive projects that celebrate American pop culture and to commemorate Coach's 75th anniversary, the house of leather joins hands with the House of Mouse to create limited-edition bags that play canvas to the world's most famous mouse. With sketches created by Disney's animators, Mickey Mouse sits on the signature glove-tanned leather of totes, bag packs, wallets and messenger bags. Like the previous Peanuts collection, the embossed character at the bottom of the bag is a bit of a blink-and-you'll-miss decoration, but this time, there are bold hang-tags in the shape of Mickey's gloves and face also. If you'd rather proclaim your love more loudly, some bags have the actual Mickey Mouse ear sprouting out from body, which can be spotted a mile away, be it in black or the very red of Mickey's two-buttoned pants. Find the Disney x Coach collection at Coach stores in CentralWorld, The EmQuartier and Siam Paragon.

    Quite a character

    » Phakdi "Try" Santaweesuk avoids the press like the plague. We didn't have to throw an ear-splitting fit on the floor the way his comic characters tend to, but it did take much pestering and badgering before the cartoonist for Ai Tua Lek -- which stars the nation's most popular mischief-maker, Pangpond -- agreed to come out of hiding.

    » Bangkok does get some Bollywood stardust every now and then. Last month, dancing superstar Dharmesh Yelande, better known on the subcontinent as Dharmesh Sir, was in Bangkok to lead a dance workshop at Rizza Dance Company.

    » Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking. And we really do mean it, unlike when Miranda Priestly said those very words rather snidely in The Devil Wears Prada.

    New with the old

    » As we step into the cooler months of the year, festivities and weddings begin full swing. As parties pack our social calendars, certain themes and requested dress codes have curiously still not quite disappeared yet. We bring you two brands that bring a modern and stylish edge to the redundant party themes of flapper and Frozen.

    Descendants of dance

    » Kenny Ortega has another hit on his hands. If there's a movie featuring dancing, then we tend to think of this acclaimed American director, producer and choreographer. Ortega is behind various cult musical phenomena that different generations of teens have grown up with, from the 1987 film Dirty Dancing, Michael Jackson's This Is It concerts, to the globally-embraced High School Musical trilogy.

    The international voice

    » A thousand unread messages are waiting for Nida "Rimi" Doowa in the hilariously named chat group "Choom Tang Siang Tong" (Junction Of Golden Voices) on Line. Her fellow contestants from The Voice Thailand Season 2 are clearly a chatty bunch, but the Thai-born Indian smiles at the thought of other things the show has brought her in launching her music career.

    Nice numbers, no plot

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 26/06/2015

    » If you're in the mood for dance-offs and dance sequences in the streets, in practice rooms, in restaurants, in studios, in bars, in front of the Bellagio Fountains, on motorcycles, on TV, on the harbour, on buses, on the stage, on another stage in the US, and amid a monolith of a canyon structure, then ABCD 2 (Any Body Can Dance 2) has more than enough dancing for all.

    To selfie or not to selfie?

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 03/07/2015

    » The photograph was fuzzy, but ironically, I clearly remember the moment of coming across it, and what was on it, as if it were just yesterday. It was a picture of a pale, blurry blob of a face, framed by jet-black hair tied in a low ponytail. On that face, lay an eager smile and two unfocused specks of flash in what appeared to be beady and squinty eyes. Two pale arms on the sides implied that the camera was already as stretched out as far as it could be. But all this happened a terribly long time ago, circa 1994, way before the ghastly concept of the selfie was born.
