More than 20 years ago, Tube Gallery kicked start with just ready-to-wear items in some leading department stores by 2 designers - Phisit Jongnarangsin and Saxit Pisalasupongs. Day by day and year by year, the duo designers have collected their experiences and developed even higher skills with more details in colours and techniques.
Through time, not only in Bangkok have Tube Gallery’s collections been showcased but also in fashion events worldwide: Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Jakarta, Sydney, Beijing, Shanghai, Tokyo, New York and Paris etc. Moreover, the brand was featured in such programmes as America’s Next Top Model, Asia’s Next Top Model, Germany’s Next Top Model, Vietnam’s Next Top Model and Thailand’s Next Top Model. Its popularity has been confirmed by many celebrities who were spotted in their creations: Kimberly Walsh of Girls Aloud and Ashley Robert of Pussycat Dolls, were among some of them.
Another benchmark Tube Gallery has achieved is costume designing for various productions both at the national and international levels. At home, they were invited to design the costume of “Manorah” royal ballet performed during the royal cremation of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej.
The public was impressed by their stunning craftmanship of costumes. Overseas, Tube Gallery have participated in various musical theatres. In South Korea, “Dorian Gray” was another talk of the town when Kim Junsu (a famous singer of the band TVXQ) appeared in Tube Gallery’s costume on stage. In Singapore, the brand has been awarded with Theatre Awards by Strait Time Life! for 3 years. Another honoured master piece to Phisit and Saxit was the costume design for the open and closing ceremonies of SEA Games 2015 in Singapore.
Having traveled to many countries, Phisit and Saxit have chances to appreciate a wide range of arts. These have always inspired them to create unique collections back home. Phisit and Saxit have worked with many world-renown artists including Christian Develter, a famous Belgian modern art artist. Develter’s art works have been transferred into a collection for Tube Gallery, which became one of their most recognized collection of the designers. During the visit of King and Queen of Belgium (then as Crown Prince and Crown Princess) to Bangkok, this collection was presented to Queen Mathilde.
Having experienced in the world of fashion design for more than 20 years, Phisit and Saxit have curated their own brand’s characteristics to be exhibited in ‘The world of Tube Gallery’. In the very exhibition, different silhouettes of different collections created by Tube Gallery in the past and present time will be on exhibition. Some of them have been collected in their own archive and others were owned by various celebrities, which have not been shown before. Visitors will enjoy travelling through the Tube Gallery’s history. Apart from the exhibition, the new collection will also be launched. The specialty of Tube Gallery 20th anniversary in 2020 was inspired by the art works created by Ploy Kasom, a young-gen artist and combined with the maximumlism of the brand’s creative directors!
