Dr. Manrutt Wongkaew
As a London-based stylist, art director, fashion choreographer, and creative consultant, Manrutt challenges the status quo in fashion advertising. He fuses dance and fashion with a socio-political twist and a wink. With his background in design, dance performance and counselling, plus experience as a Savile Row personal stylist, Manrutt juxtaposes proportion, pattern and colour and attempts to deconstruct visual perceptions of the body. His work has been presented at the London, Paris, Hong Kong, and Tokyo Fashion Weeks and his film, Cuckoo, is currently showcased on SHOWstudio.com. His work demands attention and increases sales. His features include British GQ, The Telegraph, The Guardian and Jocks & Nerds magazine.
As a Savile Row personal stylist, Manrutt provides bespoke advice regarding trends, style, fit and colour. He offers on-location wardrobe management and can select suitable colour swatches for his clients. From daily wear to wedding attire, Manrutt designs outfits for any occasion - from classically 'British' to the height of front-row chic. Tailoring advice is provided and any alterations are Savile Row standard.
As a practising Buddhist from Bangkok, Manrutt values creativity, individuality and positive thinking. He performed in Anthony Minghella's production of Madam Butterfly at the English National Opera. He gives talks on motivation and how to overcome struggle. Recent talks include TEDx Talk and BBC3.
"I am not here to break rules. I am here to push all boundaries if possible, or, to remove those boundaries that restrict personal growth and stifle creativity in the first place."
