It was the name that drew me in Jay’s shop when I was walking around in Siam Square, one of my favorite shopping areas in Bangkok (here you can read about my top 5 shopping spots in Bangkok!). Located in the shadow of big malls like Siam Paragon and MBK, this area is packed with small designer shops and therefore the ultimate go-to place for young Thai fashionistas and for anyone looking to score an original and funky look without breaking the bank.
Dancing Riot is one of my discoveries there that I’m excited to share with you. It’s everything Treasurista is about: handmade pieces with a unique style, created by a passionate and inspiring designer.
Jay was born and raised in Bangkok and therefore knows how to create the ultimate cosmopolitan city look. She started with Dancing Riot 10 years ago, surprisingly enough when she was about to graduate in a totally different subject area.
But as graduation approached, she questioned what she would love to wake up for every day. And for her, there was only one answer: her own fashion brand.
She took the leap and step by step started learning about tailoring. Initially against her family’s advice, she convinced her sister to join her in the adventure.
10 years later they’ve built up a small yet successful brand — and Jay still loves waking up to create designs that make every women look and feel good.
This jumpsuit is one of my favorite pieces – perfect for summer! You can wear it with heels for a party or with sneakers for a more casual look.
I’m a lover of high waist pants and crop tops so this colorful combo is a winner for me (love the open back!). Combine it with a Waayu bag to finish your summer look.
However, it weren’t the clothes that attracted me into Jay’s shop at first, but the name of her brand! When I asked her how she came up with “Dancing Riot”, she replied:
“I wanted a name that wasn’t too serious, fashion is all about having fun. My clothes are casual but each piece has an original touch. Because I believe you don’t have to wait for a special occasion to get dressed, you can have fun with your clothes every day.”
I couldn’t agree more!
