Vogue Lets Man Be in Charge of Thai Version

Vogue Thailand’s debut issue completely sold out within several days, but what’s more notable is that editor-in-chief Kullawit Laosuksri is only man currently at the helm of a Vogue.* He told Thailand’s The Nation newspaper he “want[s] to present Thai women’s cheerful attitude and lifestyle. For the first issue we wanted a chada [the traditional tall coronet], which is internationally recognised and has a sophisticated design. We searched the archives of the master of the craft, Chakrabhan Posayakrit, and then asked Phillip Treacy [sic], a world-renowned maker of headdresses, to create a chada we could display on our cover.” André Leon Talley, there’s hope for you yet!
