Chef Seng Luangrath of Thip Khao and Padaek (formerly Bangkok Golden) reached out to have me design her a Lao-inspired chef coat and apron for her debut event, From Laos with Love, at the James Beard Foundation earlier this summer. Made to measure, the coat features handwoven silk along the lapel and sleeve cuffs, and a hand-embroidered logo. The silk textile incorporates thin ikat textures and naga motifs horizontally. Although just a spec, the custom designs were a unique touch to complement the event's backdrop.

Her all-star team for the evening was comprised of chefs from throughout the nation, including Phet Schwader (Khe-Yo), Bobby Pradachith (Thip Khao/Padaek), Manila Southammavong (iEatLaoFood), Donny Sirisavath, and Sasha Felikson. Wow! A true Lao experience with expert hands in the kitchen.
