It’s been an extremely exciting and testing past couple of weeks with the new Nün Bangkok collection launch looming. Strangely enough, although Tom and I focus on moving the brand forward, it’s times like these that we also reflect back on how much the brand has evolved. It has been two years since we founded Nün Bangkok and this next collection will be our fifth one now.
I get asked a lot about how we started Nün Bangkok and how we knew what to do – but the truth is, we didn’t have a clue what to do. We just knew that we wanted to create clothing that we like and share it with the world. Neither of us have degrees in Fashion nor Business Management but we were dying to do this and we didn’t want fear stopping us because our hearts were already there. I quit my film directing job on a whim and off we went to start Nün Bangkok. Best decision of my life.
If I had let fear and doubt get a hold of me, I would still be working in an industry in which I lack the passion for. I had asked myself if I could wake up every morning for ten more years drafting out hundreds more storyboards and going to hundreds more film shoots. The answer was a resounding ‘no’. I know that life is ideal for some but all I knew was that it wasn’t for me and that was more than enough. I only have this life and I wanted to spend it doing what I love.
1st Oct is when our new stuff drops but you guys get a little sneaky peek here first because we’re too excited! Nün Bangkok is still an incredibly young company and we still have lots to learn. I just can’t wait to see where it will take us.
