Tiravan Vanichnam is an innovative accessories designer who specialises in creative pattern cutting, 3D experimentation, and working with leather. She recently graduated from the prestigious London College of Fashion, UK having studied BA (Hons) Cordwainers: Product Design and Development.
Born and raised in Bangkok, Thailand, and later educated in Melbourne, Australia, and more recently London, UK, she uniquely brings together into her designs touches of the west and east.
Her graduate collection "Flat to Form" was to a great extent the result of her interest in the art of folding, obsession on geometric shapes, and ultimately the challenge of implementing the folding technique on leather.
Inspired by the art of origami and geometric forms, areas that have always been of great interest to her, the collection explores the relationship between 2D and 3D forms through a one piece pattern cut and fold.
Interactive, modern, playful and fine craftsmanship are the ethos behind her collection and brand.
