A Fashion Education: Thakoon

Thakoon (pronounced "ta - koon" with no "h") is another designer I think everyone should know! He debuted his first collection in 2004 and soon caught the eye of Anna Wintour, quickly raising him into "upcoming fashion star" status. But it wasn't until Michelle Obama wore a floral dress by the designer that he really became a power player in the industry. Known for a very feminine, almost ethereal aesthetic, I die for his printed pieces, particularly his bright spring looks. His Fall 2010 collection was very primal filtered through his romantic style resulting in a breathtaking collection that I'm sure will continue to win him fans.
