Artist Participant List

Booth 140 Fashion designer Bounkhong Signavong was born in Lao PDR to working-class parents. While he has lived a cosmopolitan life, traveling the globe for education and inspiration, his textile designs remain firmly rooted in Laotian folk art and traditions, with motifs influenced by Buddhism. Perhaps the most striking element in his pieces is the intense color, from natural dyes derived from Laotian sources.
