Fall 2011 Preview: Thakoon

The Fall 2011 collections are just around the corner, and we refuse to let New York’s chilly weather put a damper on the excitement. Here, W’s Senior Fashion and Market Editor Carolyn Tate Angel takes a break from her packed preview schedule to share a look at what’s happening behind the scenes at Thakoon Panichgul’s studio.
