From Laos with Love with Chef Seng
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.
