Maylinda Bhakdithanaseth was born in Bangkok, Thailand in 1989. Passionate, open-minded and thoroughly eccentric, she discovered a love for all things creative at a very young age. Determined to harness her imagination to recreate her own world, at the tender age of 16 she created her own brand “a la netti”. Fuelled by a passion for art and design, in 2008 she moved to New York to gain a BFA in Fashion Design from Parsons The New School for Design.
Her love for couture and distinctive details led her to Marchesa where she completed an internship in the design department. With a desire to explore her imagination further, in 2014 she moved to London, fulfilling her lifelong ambition of studying at Central Saint Martin’s and completing a Masters Degree in Design Research (Jewellery). During her time at Central Saint Martin’s, Maylinda’s work became heavily influenced by the surrealist technique of juxtaposition.
She took a particular interest in the philosophy of mind, power of thoughts and the way we can design our own process of thinking that enables us to experience a new perspective and a new meaning of life. She continues to explore new things to express her deepest imagination through the world, believing that “The World Isn’t Real, But My Imagination is”.
