Designer Profile

Disaya Sorakraikitikul: Arrived in the UK in 1995, Disaya’s obsession with fashion was brought further when she decided to pursue her education at the world’s renowned fashion school, Central Saint Martins College of Fashion and Design. While there, Disaya was given the opportunity to train with John Galliano and won many fashion awards in London and Paris. Her outstanding works were featured in fashion and style magazines like Dazed & Confused UK, Tank and Jalouse.

Having completed both undergraduate and postgraduate levels at CSM with distinctions, Disaya is highly influenced by London and the unique creative element embedded within the city. The influence is revealed in all her works and collections, wich illustrates her quirkiness and eccentricity alongside femininity and elegance. Despite being offered a career to work beside Alberta Ferretti, Disaya instead decided to engage in her fashion career by launching her first lingerie label, Boudoir By Disaya.

Boudoir by Disaya was first presented to the public at ELLE Fashion Week in 2004. Subsequently, Disaya, having been driven by the success of the launch of Boudoir By Disaya, has widened her product offering and decided to include the Ready-to-Wear and Costume Jewellery collections into the product portfolio. This core collection is named after the designer herself, Disaya.

Disaya is a playful yet sophisticated ready-to-wear and jewelry collection designed by the award-winning Central St. Martins (CSM) graduate Disaya Sorakraikitikul. Disaya is highly influenced by London and the unique creativity embeeded within the city. This is demonstrated throughout all of her collections, which are full of distinctive eccentricity that will catch your attention.

Disaya was first presented internationally in Spring/Summer 2007, where the collection immediately caught the attention of both local and international audiences with her sleek silhouettes and quriky prints.

Her first collection was an extraordinary achievement being picked up by 70 stockists. Her whimiscal jewelry collection followed shortly after and was introduced as a natural compliment to her ready-to-wear.

The next two years saw Disaya’s stockists increase by 50%, and it is now sold in over 20 countries at various prestigious retailers including: Henri Bendels, Le Bon Marche, Seibu, Harrods and Harvey Nichols, as well as at the flagship store in Gaysorn shopping mall located in Bangkok, designed by world famous Italian architects, Paolo Giachi.

Worn by celebrities including Jennifer Lopez, Kelly Osbourne, Amy Winehouse, Agyness Deyn, and most recently Camilla Belle, Disaya is ready to take centre stage.

In-house design and production combined with local craftmanship and handwork ensures uncompromised quality, while international outsourcing of materials and fabrics at the very best manufacturers in Italy, France and Spain mean unparalleled style.

♡Ready-to-WearSpring/Summer 12

Disaya have some little surprises for us for S/S 2012. As well as creating a very feminine and cute clothing collection, the brand also have some super cute and (sometimes) naughty jewellery that oozes inspiration from Balloon animals, candy and even circus elephants. I love that the designer has taken all these influences and thrown them together to create something very different and unique. The Clothing itself is very fresh and some of the cuts and prints are ideal for the warmer weather.
