Since launching his namesake line in 2004 at the age of 29, Thakoon Panichgul has certainly made a name for himself in the world of fashion. Thakoon grew up in Oklahoma, and saw fashion as his way of escaping his small-town world. Today, his artfully crafted designs are ethereal and elegant, with intricate structures and bold silhouettes.

Michelle Obama wore one of his designs in 2008 during the Democratic Nominations, which garnered him a great deal of attention. He often gives a nod to his Thai heritage when constructing his designs, and utilizes a lavish amount of intricate detail. Interestingly enough, he doesn’t plan his designs around a common theme, but rather constructs his collections around a specific design detail. Thakoon certainly followed his dreams and went from small town to the big leagues, and we think that completing a feat like that is, to say the least, pretty cool.
