Angelys Balek is an emerging women’s fashion label and was nominated for the Avery Dennison Emerging Fashion Brand award at the WGSN Global Fashion Awards 2013.
I love her inspirations too, from Claude Monet’s “Water Lilies” to Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice, which add that extra element of curious to her designs.
I trotted along last week to the showing of her work and fell in love:
“I want to empower women of all ages to celebrate their individualism and self-expression while allowing them to chase their dreams with an ever young and curious imagination,” explained the 31-year-old designer, who grew up in Thailand; studied fine art and fashion at Bangkok University, London College of Fashion, and Fashion Institute of Technology; and spent time in a Buddhist monastery, before starting her label in 2010.
That’s how awesome Angelys is. And she has a whole host of celeb fans including The Kardashians, Guilana Rancic, Cher Lloyd, Jamie Chung, Ariel Winter and Catt Sadler. The girl is doing well.
As you know, I love the unicorn playsuit the most, as I featured here. This driven young woman also has her own store! By the spring of 2011 the first flagship store was open in the heart of Siam Square, Bangkok. In June 2012, Angelys Balek expanded her store to the 2nd floor of ZEN at Central Work in Bangkok.
What do you think of her collection? Do you love it as much as me?
