The dress's creator, Thakoon Panichgul, moved from Thailand to Nebraska at age 11. After graduating with a degree in business, he decided to pursue a long-dormant love of fashion. Within months of launching his line in 2004, his looks – which manage to be sophisticated and fun – graced the much-coveted editorial pages of Vogue, Elle and W. Thakoon's modern, minimalist aesthetic has been a celebrity favorite, worn by Natalie Portman, Demi Moore and Sarah Jessica Parker.
