Hi 歡迎光臨 BANGKOKIAN。我是 Matty，你能和我一起踏上 BANGKOKIAN 的旅程，真是太棒了。關於我如何開始的完整故事，我需要在無數次的冷飲中與你分享，所以現在這裡是一個快速浸入 BANGKOKIAN 如何來的故事。
Hey, welcome to BANGKOKIAN. I’m Matty, and you are awesome for coming on the BANGKOKIAN journey with me. The full story of how I started out is something I’ll need to share with you over numerous cold bevvies, so for now here’s a quick dip into how BANGKOKIAN came to be.
Hailing from the beautiful South Island city of Christchurch in New Zealand, I spent my University years in the deep dark depths of the Design rooms at Fashion School in Wellington learning and exploring all elements of the ‘Fashion’ industry. Confused about what it stood for and my position within this fashion world, I headed off overseas travelling for a couple of years to take a break and feel out what my career might look like. After an extended stay in Australia, a foray into the Aussie fashion industry, and a game show appearance (yes, really!), I decided it was time to manifest my own dream. I wanted to design and launch my own transparent and sustainable Bags label - and so BANGKOKIAN was born!
A self-proclaimed gypsy for life, I continue to move between New Zealand, Australia and Bali, and I look forward to meeting you throughout this journey. Make sure you follow BANGKOKIAN on Social Media to keep an eye on where and what happens next.
