Thakoon Tycoon

I marveled at the intricate, artistic detailing of this Thakoon dress the moment I laid eyes on it. Although tie dye has made numerous appearances virtually everywhere for quite some time now, there is a punch of individualistic freshness and uniqueness to this piece's graphic that easily separates it from it's similarly printed allies. The beauty continues as Thakoon takes this divine piece one step further with genius pleating in the dress's bib; that combined with its' softly voluminous hem undeniably designates this dress as perfection in fabric form. After spinning around in the mirror in awe at least four times whilst donning this dream of a garment, it is without question that Thakoon [Panichgul] has found a new, adoring fan in me!

"You have to look at fashion from the perspective of high end editors and publications. Read all the magazines--commercial and underground--and your voice will evolve from what you see there."- Thakoon Panichgul (quote found in The Teen Vogue Handbook, a must have, go get it, like now)
