Pleated Tent Dress "Kui Buri Thai"
I present this item from my Land Of Smiles collection; inspired by Thailand’s traditional clothing and the countryside throughout Southeast Asia. I backpacked throughout the region and discovered incredible landscapes and vibrant culture. Besides, I noted how local people dressed in connection with those of royalty. The challenge was combining the region's contemporary fashion with its traditional subgroup into something ready to wear. In the process, I came upon this beautiful cotton batik fabric from Indonesia. Batik is a prominent textile in Southeast Asia. Thus, I applied the tradition of cloth and style and combined it with western techniques. Similar to, "From Sukhothai," it's a pleated tent dress, however, with kimono sleeves and belt attached. It has two patch pockets, flows very well, and comfortable to wear. Also, with a wide neckline, it can wear with one off the shoulder. Overall it's great for any occasion. In my opinion, it's the most elegant dress in the collection.
