DVF Fall 2015 fashion show & Grand opening of DVF Emquartier

It's an unspeakable happiness when someone like Diane von Furstenberg told you "You did an amazing job" and I simply told her "Thank you! You made my dream comes true". Received a warm hug and kiss from Diane the legendary designer and one of the most influential people in the world. Isn't it the best feeling ever?!

I remember back in 2012 when I started blogging. I was thinking a lot about what should I write and trying to come up with a cool content. DVF is one of my favorite fashion brands. Besides, I've seen so many great projects of DVF online and I was inspired and that's when I decided to write about DVF x Current Elliott collaboration short film directed by Gia Coppola. Little did I know, I was going to get a Job at DVF(Thailand)just a month after I've created that blog post and it was the fist internation fashion brand that has been featured on Style Voyage.

I’ve learned anything from many years of learning by doing, it’s that investing time into building skills will often pay off in the long run, because being able to get some things done on your own will save not only money but time. And the best thing about learning by doing is that the “doing” is a part of your continuous “learning”, so the more you do, the more you learn, and the more you learn, the better you become. - See more at: http://www.trainingaid.org/news/learning-doing-how-make-learning-practical#sthash.qfMILBYf.dpuf

I started out as a marketing. Later in my career I have an opporotunity to do pretty much everything from marketing, pr, to buying, and merchandising. Oh and blogging in my free time. Oh gosh that's a lot of pressure but there's nothing too difficult if we love what we do. Also, not everyone gets to travel from Bangkok to New Yok right?! It's such a privilege.

How do I got here? Well, I never get bored of being surrounded by beautiful garments and accessories. So it's not a secret that my passion for fashion and the buring desire to prove to my parents who are not very supportive with the lifestyle and job I've choosen to become supportive and proud of what I do. Those things keep pushing me to work harder and learn more to become better everyday and never give up on my goal when I am facing obstacles. I've gained a lot from working with limited resources. I get to learn and do more than working in an established organization. Of course, it's often get to the point where I put a lot of pressure on myself as I don't want to let anyone down. I often do the best I could when h being able to get most of the things done by myself which is not easy. Consequently, I've developed my self-confidence as being more precise and self-esteem for feeling good about myself and my ability. 

God knows I've always wanted to meet Diane von Furstenberg in person as she is one of my role model and the main reason I decided to apply for this job. After 2 years my dream has finally came true! I met her for the first in New York Fashion week in February 2015. It's the busiest time of the year for every designers so I didn't get a chance to properly say hi to her and that's alright because I know she is coming to Bangkok in May for our exclusive book signing event at DVF Central Chidlom and the grand opening of DVF EmQuartier our 3rd branches in Thailand with full Fall 2015 Fashion Show

It took us over 4 months of hard work planning,organizing,and preparing everything. Though our team is very small we did the best we could to make sure that DVF and press will impress with everything we have prepared for them. Diane and DVF team coming to Bangkok is a big deal! I cannot afford to screw up and felt like it's my duty to up hold the legacy of DVF that has been established over 4 decades with long history in the world's fashion industry.

The night before DVF and team arrived Bangkok I couldn't sleep. I was extremely nervous and excite! May 14th and 15th were the busiest and most memorable days of my life. The event was a big but Diane's being incredibly warm and friendly to everyone. She allowed her fans to take a photo and get really close to her which brought a smile to everyone's face. Our team was beyond happy that the event went well and utterly pleased to see everyone had a wonderful time at the event and enjoy the fashion show. Until now people still came up to me and went on about how great the event was. I could not be happier to know that all the hard work has paid off!

I would like to thank Diane von Furstenberg and DVF team for the great cooperation, TUE Company (best event organizer in fashion business) for helping us making this amazing event happen,and P'Koko (fashion editor if Harper's Bazaar Thailand) for helping us with the show. Also, a special thanks to Vogue Thailand and Jim Thompson team for your hospitality and excellent dinnerMost of all, thank you to press and guests for coming to the event.

 Photobomb!
 Finally I got my book signed by Diane von Furstenberg. Priceless!
"Be the woman you want to be". I relate so much to this and it's my favorite Diane's mantra. I will treasure this for the rest of my life.

 Did I mention, my parents saw me on TV with DVF and looked really excited. It was the first time they ever said they were proud of me and asked me about my career! 
Everything I've been through definitely taught me that with the right attitude, hard work, and consistent dedication any dream is achievable!
