El Botón, the Mango Fashion Awards competition invited talents to participate in its 4th edition asking them "to create their own revolution". Among them is a young designer from Thailand, Instituto Marangoni graduate Wisharawish Akarasantisook whose designs seem to be far more than revolutionary, in the sense that revolution is considered in fashion terms. Actually, he is one of the 10 finalists of this year's contest and as soon as we came across his designs we adored them. Wisharawish who has already won many different contests in Tokyo, Bangkok, and Paris created garments with multiple layering and repetition of forms, combining traditional Thai materials with the newest clothing styles. Thematically Wisharawish's work is based on the idea of rebirth and reincarnation.
Have you seen anything so inspiring and beautiful by a new designer lately?
