EPONINE IN THAILAND

In April, Jet was invited to the Thai Department of International Trade Promotion’s STYLE fair in Bangkok

(and she packed Nina in her suitcase)

After a wonderfully exciting and inspiring few days in Bangkok, Jet and Nina flew to Chiang Mai. They sourced fabric and met with the wonderful suppliers of our delicious Eponine Hmong dresses.

It was a joy and an honour to be invited to Thailand. We will always be so very thankful to DITP for inviting us to their beautiful country, full of colour and wonder and endless creativity. We were bowled over by the kindness and generosity extended to us. We’ve made relationships we will always cherish, and have a few exciting announcements to make in weeks to come!
