Bio

Titat Kuantrakul is a semi-finalist of the EcoChic Design Award 2017. He holds a degree in Fashion Design Technology from London College of Fashion, United Kingdom.

I believe that one of the best and most sustainable ways to approach fashion design is to create everlasting, timeless pieces. I aim to create classic yet fashionable, strong yet delicate, elegant yet sweet designs, that reflect modern femininity. - Titat Kuantrakul

EcoChic Design Award Collection

For his EcoChic Design Award application, Titat applies the design technique of reconstruction to counterfeit clothing sourced from a local wholesale market, which would otherwise be slashed or incinerated by authorities. Giving the textiles a second life by cutting and handweaving into new materials, his elegant collection draws on inspiration from the extravagance of Victorian era elites.
