Phiraya Khamluea_SUSFUTURE2024 國際永續時尚設計展

/Artist 藝術家/

I am a 4th year student at Chulalongkorn University. I was born and raised in a marginal area in the Northeastern part of the country. I am interested in studying the cultures in the Mekong River basin. Especially weaving and patterns some fabric patterns are still difficult to find and wear. And not many people know Therefore, I would like to present the weaving pattern to be more well known.


Perspectives on Tradition and Future, Sustainability and Fashion, and Life.

I think that we can grow as people. There must be many factors that shape unique and identity. Tradition is one thing that affects my beliefs, my lifestyle. Therefore, I believe that tradition is the basis that affects the future. Fashion is my livelihood. It's like pheromones that attract things. For me, sustainability is age. If I take good care of my health, I will live a long life. If fashion becomes more well known, it will continue to exist as long as no one forgets it. It's like as long as I'm not dead.

The Concept and Description of the Work關於參展作品的創作動機與設計理念

The story of the legend of the Nang-han pattern that reflects the way of life, traditions, culture, love and great courage of Tai Dam women. And has told by word of mouth and few people know about it. Therefore, I would like to pass on this great story so that more people can get to know the Nanghan pattern. Conveying stories through fashion products so that people can experience and get close to the Nang-han pattern skirts that are woven with courage and determination. The newly designed pattern still maintains the identity of the Nang Han pattern combined with a pattern that still conveys beliefs and explains natural phenomena. And creating a modern look, both patterns and clothing designs are different from the original, including placing patterns spaced apart to allow space for the eyes to rest. Adjust the new color layout to make it more simple and modern. 

Nang-han圖案的傳說講述了Tai Dam女性的生活方式、傳統、文化、愛情和偉大勇氣。這個故事通過口耳相傳,但知曉的人很少。因此,我希望能傳播這個偉大的故事,讓更多人了解南罕圖案。通過時尚產品傳遞這些故事,讓人們能夠體驗並接近那些充滿勇氣和決心織成的南罕圖案裙子。
