  “It’s all in the detail! I liked the old times when things took time to be made. I appreciate the value of vintage clothing and draw much inspiration from antique pieces and organic shapes. I love femininity paired with imperfection."

Artistically inclined and imaginatively beautiful, Koi Suwannagate captures nature’s fleeting beauty in her trademark hand-sculpted creations of multilayered luxurious fabrics. Creating an ethereal fantasy, she tempers delicate arty hand-embellishments with elegant real-world clothes. Her prolific three-dimensional designs not only accentuate feminine contours but they envelope the female body in flowing lines.

The creation of each garment involves impeccable handwork and no two pieces are exactly alike. Vintage and organic fabrics, as well as natural dyes often supplement Koi Suwannagate’s nature-inspired designs. The result is more than clothing, it’s a timeless collectible that can be worn with confidence and joy for years to come.

Born in Bangkok, live in New York. Koi Suwannagte launched her line in 2001. She made her New York Fashion Week debut in 2007 to high acclaim from fashion press and retailers. The same year, Vogue and The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) recognized her talent with a nomination for the prestigious Fashion Fund Award. WWD Women’s Wear Daily named Koi Suwannagate’s S/S ’09 collection one of The Top Ten Collections of the season.
