Peeramon Chomdhavat

Peeramon Chomdhavat, director of Arporn-Ngam studio, is one of Thailand’s leading dance artists and costume designers. He has a strong drive to conserve the history of Thai classical dance, in both performance and apparel. The costumes, in particular, were researched and reproduced in the same form as the elaborate and delicate original works dating back a century. Following the old designs, these magnificent, complex, radiant works take him many months each to complete. As he has developed his technique, his embroidery has become smaller and more precise. His works are widely appreciated and recognized as the pride of Thai culture.

Peeramon works in a purpose-built studio located in a lovely garden in his house.

Visit Aroirn-Ngam website : www.arporn-ngam.net : to see the costume in action!
