Thin Myat Soe, the amazing Thin Thin is a designer on the rise in the new Yangon fashion scene. Her roots go deep in the city and her memory is long but Thin Thin is a modern woman and always on the lookout for what’s new. She is a graduate of Yangon University, and a young mom, who lives atop her mother-in-law’s dress making shop in the hippest part of Yangon’s downtown. Thin Thin is a perfectionist so it’s no surprise that she has emerged as an in demand bag designer and we look forward to the launch of her own clothing line.
