The fast-growing Thai fashion industry, encompassing leather, jewellery and garment industries, contributes to Bangkok's creative and energetic ambiance. However, fashion is still a young industry in Thailand compared to European fashion houses, as its first brands appeared only some 25 years ago.

Nevertheless, in terms of market range, the Thai fashion industry has grown to cover near the whole pret-a-porter sector: women's, men's, and children's fashions are all well-represented in Bangkok's shop windows.

Thailand has strong traditions for high-quality fabrics such as Thai silk. Today, the industry has an important contributing role to the country's economy, accounting for approximately 17 percent of total GDP.
