A teaser to Generation T 2018 (Video by: Mika Apichatsakol/Thailand Tatler digital)

For this issue’s cover shoot our team gathered at the Banyan Tree Bangkok on Sathorn Road. In light of the launch of Thailand Tatler’s Generation T 2018 listings this month, our cover features five of society’s bright young individuals, all under 40, making an impact in their respective fields.

It’s early in the afternoon and Don Harinsut (co-founder of online payment platform Omise); Chawin Athakravisunthorn (managing director and co-founder of property developer One.Six Development); Rarin Thongma (founder of fashion company O&B); Jainnisa Kuvinichkul (executive director of aluminium manufacturer Alumet) and Piyarat Kaljaruek (vice president of film and television production company Kantana Group) have all taken time from their busy schedules to join us at the hotel’s luxurious presidential suite.

The Insider: Due to her packed schedule, Jainnisa had to get a police car to lead her half way across town to make it on time for the group photo shoot

It’s not easy to organise a photoshoot with five models—what with styling and make-up sessions, outfit changes, individual and group shots and quick interviews with each to squeeze in—but there were no complaints from our friendly cover stars, whose cheerful demeanour made the day a pleasant experience for all. The group shot for the cover, the last image of the day to be captured, was snapped at the hotel’s Vertigo Too bar. Rushing against time because not only was the bar about to open to the public but because we were also told that a special dinner for a wedding proposal was about to take place, we were able to wrap everything up smoothly. Dressed to impress, each of our 2018 Generation T listers looked dashing as they worked for the camera, making nailing each shot a simple process.
