Patcharavipa Bodiratnangkura

Bold, imaginative and ambitious, this free spirit discovered her fixation for jewels and gems at a young age and started crafting her first costume jewellery at the age of 13. Born into an illustrious clan, her designs draw inspiration from her family’s story and legacy. Her eponymous brand, Patcharavipa, fuses traditional Thai craftsmanship with modern techniques, while aesthetically putting on display the designer’s fascination with natural materials, textures and silhouettes. With headquarters in London and Bangkok, her career highlight last year was debuting in the international market and launching a showroom in Paris after a special presentation at Paris Fashion Week. Moved by passion and challenges, she is a strong believer in embracing the present.
