I suppose an Introduction to ourselves would be an appropriate way to start of our blog. Siam Costumes has been around for over 30 years now, the owner of the company is an Englishmen called Darryl Kent-Morris, he always had a passion for clothes i can imagine when he was living in London during the peak of the punk age whilst he was customising his shirts and jeans he never imagined he would end up manufacturing costumes for Hollywood films.
Siam Costumes is based in the heart of south-east asia that being Thailand, Its here where Darryl truly fell in love with Asia: the culture, the people, the food, the heat and the endless amount of opportunities and whether he knew it or not Thailand would one day become his home and workplace.
Thailand is renowned for its authentic fabrics from its notorious Silk to its finest pure cotton and if you still can’t find what you’re looking for then its just over a two-hour flight to China.
So it’s now wonder why
Siam costumes have an endless amount of fabric in stock sourced from all around the world and not to mention the thousands of haberdasheries.
At first Designers and Companies were weary about trusting Siam Costumes as it was a new company that just started and was located on the other side of the world. As time passed and Siam Costumes worked they’re way from the bottom, the work began to gain some well deserved attention and it took Darryl around ten years to become a reliable trusted company that could handle the large productions on a tight time scale and at the highest quality for the entertainment industry.
Having worked on Hollywood blockbusters such as Oliver stones Alexander, Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorious Basterds and Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy as well as Andrew Llyods webber hit musical Love never dies and Ben Hurs world tour. Now with one of the most versatile resumes within the industry Siam Costumes look forward to progressing even more within the next few years.
