Thai Fashion Brands on Instagram

Instagram this, instagram that! Food looks more delicious, simple things more poignant, quotes are... well, still a waste of instagram IMHO. Brands have been embracing the Facebook-owned mobile network more now too. Just search #nyfw to see all the shows and parties of New York Fashion Week from the perspective of fashion bloggers, editors, designers and models. Ok, can't compare it to Google Glass at DVF but it's still cool.

SOS - Save Our Style!

I recently discovered new online magazine and shop SOS, which stands for Symbols of Style, after either a paid ad or a friend liking it caught my eye on Facebook. Can't quite remember now.

Every item, photograph, interview and restaurant review (yes, they do food too) is carefully selected for its design aesthetic and style. I think this site really has the potential to be a style bible for Thailand. I'm a believer in Thai style. It's different and unique and we have our own trends. It's not the same when our magazines are supplanted with spreads from Marie Claire UK. Thai designers also need a stage that grants them the respect they deserve.

For once, SOS is taking into consideration how Thais really dress here, current trends, not just those walking down Paris catwalks, and practical issues like weather, seasonality. (See their post on 'hot weather leather.')

I just received my first SOS package the other day, delicately wrapped in tissue paper, arriving fashionably on time!

With different special deals on orders every day of the week and regular updates on products, it won't be my last!
