PRANAPDA
PHORNPRAPHA
AGE: 40
INDUSTRY: Fashion, Retail, Education, Business, Transportation
EDUCATION: Brown University
NATIONALITY: Thai
The heiress to the Siam Kolakan fortune, Pranapda “Pam” Pornprapha is the perfect example of girl power, with the vision to add another facet to her family empire. As a director at Siam Motors, she has simultaneously forged her own path by showing that the worlds of fashion, business, and creativity exist as one – as her growing stable of companies attests. She founded BF Fashions over a decade ago with multibrand concept store Cloud 9, which stocked luxury independent brands. From there she turned to brand distribution, adding labels that range from Havaianas and Le Petit Bateau to Hackett London and Christian Louboutin. We also hear of a new hospitality project in the works with some of the most renowned names in the business coming to Bangkok. This is testament to there being no finite end to her vision, ambition, and incredibly great taste
PRANITAN
PHORNPRAPHA
AGE: 38
INDUSTRY: Transportation, Social Enterprise
EDUCATION: American University, London
NATIONALITY: Thai
Scion to the Siam Kolakan empire, Pranitan “Pete” Phornpraha has made big waves on his own. His singular vision has seen him co-found and create some of Thailand’s most landscape-defining projects, including Wonderfruit Festival. Part of his social enterprise Scratch, it purports to change the notion of festivals and create an experience that integrates music, art, and good-living. He has succeeded. He is also changing the way that we travel and adding a sense of adventure and mysticism to transportation, having introduced Vespa and Deus ex Machina to Thailand. Next came Morimoto restaurant in the Mahanakhon Cube. Pranitan personally approached Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto to bring his restaurant to Bangkok and now we have our very own Morimoto in the city. If that is not enough, Pranitan is also the founder of Asiola, Asia’s first crowdfunding platform for artists and good causes. Ambitious and contagiously positive, Pranitan is the next generation of the Siam Kolakan empire, but he is also creating an empire of his own, shaping a vision for the future: one that is greener, happier, and more community-driven, without compromising on design or aesthetics, of course.
