Leap Stylist Associate- THAKOON in New York, New York
Thakoon Panichgul is a Thai-American designer who steadily carved a niche for himself in the New York fashion industry before gaining wider fame after his appearance in The September Issue. Technically gifted, Thakoon designs feminine collections, with simple lines crafted through deceptively complex construction. In September 2004, Panichgul produced his first ready to wear collection and became recognized by fashion press, editors and stylists, and celebrities alike. In 2006, Thakoon was one of three recipients of the Vogue/CFDA Fashion Fund and the designer was also nominated by the CFDA for the Swarovski Award for Best Emerging Womenswear Designer. Thakoon is very excited to be opening the doors to their first storefront in 2019!
