Beside Thakoon, there is another Thai designer who is also the rising star among New York designers. Koi Suwannagate collaborated with Phillip Lim by incorporating her beautiful hand-sculpted rose designs in 3.1 Phillip Lim’s summer 2007 collection. Most recently the CFDA and Vogue acknowledged her talent with the nomination as finalists for the 2007 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Award. "My signature style is to sculpt and shape each piece to enhance and beautify the natural contours of the female body, draped in a way that allows fluid movement and ultimate comfort. I choose to work almost exclusively with the finest cashmere, silk and cotton, which adds an element of richness and superior softness that is the epitome of luxury and pure indulgence" said Koi.
