Bangkok is home to hundreds, if not thousands, of tailoring shops ranging from casual clothing at affordable prices to a more luxury, high-end spectrum.
Amongst them, Damanino aims to set itself apart in the bespoke tailoring industry. It aims to be a globally recognised brand that encourages men and women to dress sharply, no matter the occasion.
On Sept 11, Damanino opened a new store in Bangkok. Located at 400/3 Sukhumvit Road (between Soi 20 and 22), it was followed with a classy and luxurious launch party.
The opening also coincides with Damanino’s cooperation with the London-based Savile Row Company, a global online retailer of luxury goods with a focus on menswear, but also spanning across accessories, footwear and womenswear.
At the launch, Savile Row Tailoring Academy head Darren Beaman presented Damanino a certificate on the completion of a week training in pattern making and fitting the Savile Row way.
“We are now certified to provide Savile Row Quality suits,” Damanino founder Dhammandeep Singh, also known as Daniel Singh, tells Asia Samachar.
Damanino designs exemplary men and women wardrobe, providing custom made clothing for all men and women.
It also works with several top companies such as PwC officers (Australia-wide), Bupa Insurance Melbourne, AIA Insurance, JetStar Airways, Fitzroys Real Estate, Medibank, Capella Capital, Barclay’s capital, SMS management Australia, Frame group, Paramount Pictures Inc. Australian, Commonwealth Bank and several other top companies.
In the Spirit of Damanino, as the event was titled, the highlight of the night was a jazz concert featuring the illustrious Preeyaporn Yodsalong.
Some of the guests were Thailand former foreign minister Prajuab Chaiyasarn, Thailand former deputy public health minister Torpong Chaiyasarn, and Bangkok Immigration Division 1 former head Police Major General Krissada Surrachettaphong.
Also present was Daniel’s father Popinder Singh Khanijaun and other family members.
The event emcee was Mechaka Supichanyanghul, a prominent Channel 3 host.
As guests enjoyed the music and festivities, they indulged in an assortment of hors-d’oeuvres from Olive restaurant as they networked and socialised while sipping on tantalising champagne or whisky.
In addition, the launch also held two lucky draws. The second prize was a set of three complimentary Swiss cotton shirts, while the first prize was a suit, perfectly fitting for the occasion.
All guests were also given 10% discount on their next purchase at Damanino as well as other complimentary return gifts.
