Unique fashion collection on sales at DoiTung & Friends 2019
The Mae Fah Luang Foundation under Royal Patronage launched the 4th DoiTung & Friends event on November 12 at Siam Paragon, featuring a every-day fashion collection inspired by life, nature, and tribe culture - jointly created by famous designers, traditional artists, and Doitung tribe artisans.
Sales Revenue from the fourth annual activities in 2019 will go towards development of rural communities.
The late Princess Srinagarindra of Thailand, the grandmother of King Maha Vajiralongkorn, established the foundation. She once said:" We have to help people who need help to stand on their own".
The DoiTung & Friends project has been around since 2016, said ML Dispanadda Diskul, chief executive officer of Mae Fah Luang Foundation. He was praised by friends in the art and fashion circle for taking charge of the project, including Kullawit Laosuksri of Vogue, and Sombat Thirasarot, an expert in fashion and style.
This year's event also sees the participation of Vatanika Patamasingh, the owner of Vatanika clothes brand, and Kimberley Anne Woltemas Tiamsiri, a Thai/German actress and model.
Interested persons can visit the DoiTung and Friends Pop-Up store at Siam Paragon or shop online via Doi Tung Lifestyle IG. The collection will be available until December 1.
