Torn between her lucrative engineering job and her passion for fashion, Laura Thapthimkuna is at a crossroads. Fashion has always had an important role in Thapthimkuna's life. Her mother taught her to sew at a young age and has always been a fervent supporter of her work. Thapthimkuna's ultimate goal is to pursue fashion/costume design for the film and music industry. "Celebrities have the ability to wear outfits that break the rules and push boundaries," she says "that inspires me and reminds me that there are fearless people that will wear my designs."
