Thai-American born designer, Angelys Balek, takes a painterly approach to color and proportion, successfully balancing eastern artisanship with western culture and design.
Following graduation from Bangkok University with a degree in Fine Art, Angelys pursued and was accepted into the London College of Design, where she earned her 2nd degree in Fashion Design.
In 2013 Angelys Balek was nominated as a finalist in WGSN’s Global Fashion Awards. Working with original artwork of her own, Balek manipulates fabric, with texture, multi level hemlines, and cutouts, giving a sophisticated edge to classic shapes.
Today, with a flagship store in Bangkok, Thailand and production in the New York, Angelys divides her time between the US and Asia, shopping European trade shows for innovative fabrics.
The Angelys Balek collection is sold at notable specialty retailers internationally and online. A complete list can be accessed through the stockist.
The collections have been featured editorially online and in fashion publications including WWD, Marie Claire, Elle, Lucky and Harpers Bazaar.
