Designers in the spotlight: Thakoon

Thakoon was born in Thailand and raised in Omaha, Nebraska. He started his career in fashion by working as a merchandiser for J. Crew and writer for Harper's Bazaar. He then decided to study fashion at Parsons School of Design. After showing in 2004, for the first time during Fashion Week, Thakoon became one of New York's most promising talents. In 2006, he was nominated for the CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund, and in 2007, thanks to Anna Wintour, he designed a range for Gap.
Thakoon's designs are described as "forward-looking and timelessly feminine". Celebrities who love him include Sarah Jessica Parker, Rachel Bilson and Demi Moore.
