After winning the first prize award from the young blood designer competition “The Designer Season 2” in 2012, Kanapot Aunsorn has shown great potential and fabulous ideas of a modern designer reflected in the thesis collection of “An Opium League”. By successfully improving the camouflage technique of woven Mudmee silk, the memorable portfolio of work was introduced; such as a ruffled denim military jacket with beads embroidered along the seams, pleated chiffon pants made of various printed designs stretching over 12 meters in length, and a colorful opium patterned loose fitting coat in a patchwork style which have significantly drawn attention to both Thai and international fashion industries.
Born and raised in military environment in the southern part of Thailand, Kanapot Aunsorn used to observe his father spending time neatly putting on an army uniform, layered clothing and insignias on a shirt along with boots before carrying out his duty on a daily basis. Those memories deeply embedded in Kanapot’s childhood. No wonder why his creation always catches the sense of military in every single collection.
In addition, his mother also has influenced on his design idea including 80’s silhouette, pencil skirt, swaying pleated skirt, high waisted flare pants and different styles of scarves. Without a doubt, these examples apparently led to today’s modern fashion.
