Decades of Style
Decades of Style: The Royal Wardrobe of Her Majesty Queen Sirikit exhibition honors and celebrates Her Majesty Queen Sirikit The Queen Mother’s 90 th birthday on 12 August 2022. Using examples from her extraordinary wardrobe, the exhibition tells the story of The Queen Mother’s dedication and lifelong work to preserve and promote Thai textiles.
Her Majesty Queen Sirikit The Queen Mother has long been a role model for Thai women, especially in her promotion of Thailand’s traditional crafts. Understanding the power of royal patronage, Her Majesty took the unprecedented step of commissioning French and Thai couturiers to make traditional Thai village textiles into high fashion clothes and then wore them during royal visits at home and abroad. And beginning in the 1970s, the Queen’s patronage extended beyond her wardrobe as she promoted traditional Thai crafts of all kinds by bringing exquisite SUPPORT products along on her travels to show the taste and skill of Thai craftspeople to the world.
Decades of Style: The Royal Wardrobe of Her Majesty Queen Sirikit is now on view at the Queen Sirikit Museum of Textiles. The museum is open daily from 9:00-16:30, with the last admission at 15:30.
