Project Runway is back for Season 11 tonight! Catch Thai contestant Tu Suthiwat Nakchat as he dukes it out with the other designers.
There’s one catch for this new season, however – every challenge is a team challenge, meaning all designers will compete in groups from beginning to end. One Project Runway winner will still be crowned.

Culinary delights are sure things to be celebrated during Asian Pacific-American Heritage Month, and Bay Area foodies rejoiced at the opportunity to learn more about the art of Asian cooking (And satisfy their tastebuds too!) from a local celebrity chef.
As part of Macy’s series of Asian Pacific-American Heritage Month events, the Union Square store in San Francisco welcomed Michelin Star chef James Syhabout to the Cellar Kitchen on May 5th for a cooking demonstration and tasting. A Thailand native who grew up in Oakland, CA, he is the chef and owner of Commis Restaurant and proprietor of Hawker Fare Restaurant, which are also both located in Oakland. Hawker Fare is a Southeast Asian street food joint that Syhabout brought a piece of to his audience, by cooking one of their signature dishes Khao Mun Gai, or Thai-style chicken and rice.
We featured Thai designer Disaya in our Winter 2010-11 issue, and she also featured her fall line at Audrey’s Night Out. Educated at the prestigious Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design in London, Disaya Prokobsantisukh honed her craft at John Galliano before launching the critically acclaimed Boudoir by Disaya, a lingerie line. She’s since expanded to ready to wear and jewelry that any fashionista would recognize as the right balance between wearability and design. Here are some more looks from her fall line.
