We challenged the fixtures of Bangkok’s fashion circuit, who cumulatively own more NWT (that’s “New With Tags” for the un-eBay-initiated) attire than a Club 21 sample sale, to dig out that one item from their wardrobe that they’ve never worn—yet can’t bear to part with—and, well, wear it!
Whether it was an impulse purchase, weight loss incentive, snap sale decision, or simply a case of particularly good changing room lighting, it doesn’t matter—they did the deed and now we want to see the dress. And then find out, more importantly, if they would wear it again or admit sartorial defeat? Stay tuned for each of our weekly, 9-part “New With Tags” episodes to find out.

What’s the item?
A vintage John Galliano dress.
Where, when, and why did you buy it?
From an antique market in Paris, about three years ago. I just fell in love with it!
Why haven't you ever worn it?
It’s too beautiful…
Now that you've worn it, will you wear it again?
Of course! Probably to my own birthday party!
