Verve Fashion

                  Thuryatorn Ng is a Connecticut-based designer focusing on traditional Thai designs using traditional textiles and fabrics found in the formal dress of Thailand. While the presented line showcased formal gowns accentuated with gold decorated trim, the ornate headpieces grabbed most of the attention. Based on animals from the Chinese zodiac, they were extravagant, bold and seemingly difficult to wear for the models. While other lines had models swooshing down to the end of the runway and back, the careful balanced walk of Thuryatorn models seemed solemn and stately.
