Janesuda: Fashion Label by Thai-American Actress Jane Parnto
Janesuda ‘Jane’ Parnto was born 1982 in Thailand to an American father and a Thai mother. She grew up in Thailand and entered the Thai entertainment industry at the age of 14. Jane was in music videos and eventually became a host, VJ at MTV Thailand and an actress. She is also a good friend of Thai-British actress Paula Taylor and the godmother of Paula’s daughter Lyla.
Jane has always dreamed of creating her own fashion line and at the age of 19 she made her first try to sell her own t-shirts. Hence, she asked a fabric factory to produce 10 tees for her which they did. Since Jane’s friends liked the shirts very much she gave them all away for free.
In 2012 her fashion label Janesuda was launched. At first, Jane only wanted to create the most comfortable and stylish t-shirt, a piece of clothing that she thinks essential in every woman’s wardrobe. Thus, she created her Signature Tee which became a great success. In her view, a tee can reflect the wearer’s personality. It is all about finding the right fit and style.
Thus encouraged, Janesuda started to create more fashion items and essentials like the Signature Tank (Top) and the Signature Dress. These pieces have in common that they are formfitting, timeless and made from premium cotton.
What is more, Janesuada has also been producing thematic seasonal lines, ranging from casual sundresses to formal evening gowns. Her aim is to create timeless and meaningful fashion that lets the wearer’s personality shine through. Hence, Janesuda is not about following trends 🙂
Her latest collection, AW 2015, is called ‘Make Your Romance’. Personally, I really like this collection because it is very boho, chic, elegant, feminine but also dainty. In fact, it is also romantic and unconventional. There are a lot of flowing dresses and lace tops. Let us dwell on some more of Jane’s creations for ‘Make Your Romance’.
Finally, we can say that Janesuda prefers the imperfect look which she thinks fascinating and creating a lasting impression. Hence, her fashion design is extraordinary, elegant and wearable. I think that she offers something for everyone’s taste whether casual tees or elegant dresses.
