She was named by Vogue as one of the ten young designers to watch, and has also been the nominee of a number of awards, including the Vogue/CFDA Fashion Fund Award, as well as exhibiting at New York Fashion Week to great acclaim on a number of occasions.
A favourite of the Hollywood A-List, Suwannagate’s creations have been worn by some of entertainment’s most influential women, including Oprah Winfrey, Nicole Kidman, Christina Richey and Natalie Portman.
Suwannagate’s designs are known primarily for their feminine layering, enticing designs that are able to capture nature’s fleeting moments of beauty through her use of luxurious fabrics and intricate hand-sculpted design. This results in her collections giving the sense of the ethereal, clothes that express a flowing fantasy of delicate femininity whilst still retaining a real-world edge to them.
Suwannagate’s designs continue to innovate and articulate, and they can be found in some of the most prestigious boutiques and department stores around the globe, and her presence looks set to continue growing.
