Step into the wild with the British-Thai designer Ong-Oaj. Danger in the wild defines Ong-Oaj Pairam Autumn/Winter 2014-2015 collection which presents an army of villains inspired by his all-time favourite anti-hero Ursula from Disney’s Little Mermaid.
With a quick nod at the ’50s seen in A-lines billowing skirts with cinched in waists and a range of graphic patterns, the designer moves on to the world of dangerous creatures, contemporary prints reminiscent of the warning markings of dangerous animals perfectly paired with metallic accessories. Dark dresses with prints inspired by the darker works of American modernist artist Charlie Harper, are strikingly paired with acid bright outerwear in an exploration of toxic animals and plants.
Ong-Oaj Pairamstudied Fashion and Business at Brighton University where he is now based. After working for fashion houses such as Proenza Schouler in New York and Roland Mouret in London, Ong-Oaj Pairam founded his own label in 2012 showcasing his debut collection last season at Fashion Scout.
