It’s been quiet here for about a week now, not for want of things to write about, but because there is so much political crap going down that I really don’t want to talk about.
So, how about that fashion week huh (last week)? I didn’t attend anything, but I read that there is optimism for the future of fashion in Thailand. Thailand does indeed have it’s own fashion sense and is capable of coming up with something original, rather than copying others (contrary to tourists might believe).
Feelings on Thailand being a central hub of fashion in Asia were not so generous, with most people saying that there was a very long way to go.
On a different topic, it’s been revealed that Roman Polanski will be opening the 3rd World Film Festival in Bangkok with his new film “Oliver”, based on Charles Dickens’ “Oliver Twist”.
The festival will take place on 14-24 October at Grand EGV (Siam Discovery) and Major Cineplex (Central World Plaza) with over 60 films from over 20 countries.
If you’re a lover of film like me, be sure not to miss it.
