2013 Graduation Fashion Show Designer: Kittiya Punprapun

Kittiya Punprapun was born in Bangkok, Thailand, but attended the Lycée Jeanne d’Arc, Clermont Ferrand, in France. She is pursuing a B.F.A. in Fashion Design from the Academy of Art University and received an Honorable Mention in last year’s CFDA Scholarship Design Competition. With laminated silk, wool silk blend, and taffeta, Kittiya used complex pattern-cutting to create overlaid panelling construction. Fabric was folded and inserted within seams to achieve architectural form. Inspired by body-conscious curved outlines reminiscent of the irregular, Kittiya’s collection incorporated distorted organic forms to enhance clean base colors and highlight proportion and form.
