The looks on the Thakoon runway had a playful — but sophisticated — naughtiness to them; prints like lipstick kisses and false eyelashes and chiffon gowns with pleated bodices.
Skin colors such as nude, buff and beige were punctuated with textured black, deep red and bougainvillea. The lipstick kisses were subtle, like a sheer nude kisses trench coat with a tulle fringe. And rose prints were featured on several of the dresses, such as a rose print seamed dress with dark ribbon trim.
Designer Thakoon Panichgul designed the printed dress that Michelle Obama wore the night her husband accepted the nomination at the Democratic National Convention.
“Seeing it was magical,” he said.
