Moving away from her traditional Siam Paragon venue, Her Royal Highness Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana Rajakanya took over the ballroom of the Park Hyatt Bangkok last Saturday evening to introduce her Sirivannavari Autumn/Winter in a blaze of fuchsia.

To a backdrop of a sunny day in the French Alpine ski resort of Courchevel, models took to the catwalk to show off warm winter wear such as capes, coats and a Napoleonic jacket all with pops of fuchsia pink, the main colour of the collection, along with a full range of fashion products such as leather clothing, accessories and jewellery for the ladies and smart togs for guys by S’HOMME.

The new collection consists of a total of 34 items, divided into 27 looks for women and seven for men.

The Princess says that she wants to give freedom to young women to show their own style and have fun mixing and matching separates to come up with a look that is both elegant and romantic. The warm shirts look inviting with a feminine/masculine structure and come in shades of white, snow, grey, black, baby blue and, of course, that lively fuchsia pink.

“Actually, it is my style of dressing while I’m abroad. Although Thailand is not very cold, these days a lot of Thais travel abroad during the cold season. I thought it was time for Sirivannsvari to design an Autumn/Winter collection so that Thais could see how to style winter clothing and wearing winter clothes made by Thais,” the Princess explains.

“For this collection, I chose to use the silhouette and characteristics of the brand and combined that with winter materials such as tweed, Italian cashmere, metallic cashmere, wool fabric, suede and feathers expressed as a modern winter lifestyle. For the Napoleonic jacket, the silhouette is asymmetrical silhouette while the cape and overcoat are made from cashmere and look perfect with ankle boots and new wedge pumps. ”

The collections for both men and women are now available at the Sirivannavari boutique on the first floor of Siam Paragon.

King Rama X has stripped Sineenat Wongvajirapakdi of her “Chao Khun Phra” or noble consort title as well as her military rank.

The Royal Gazette published on Monday (October 21) that His Majesty King Maha Vajiralongkorn Phra Vajiraklaochaoyuhua had also recalled her Royal insignia, owing to her undesirable behaviour as a Royal servant and being disloyal to the Royal Family.

The statement said Sineenat had been against the appointment of Queen Suthida and had given many orders under the name of Their Majesties for her personal benefit. She also reportedly engaged in activities without His Majesty’s approval, which caused confusion among the public.

Irrigation projects granted auspicious names by King Rama IX

Oct 15. 2019
By The Nation

92 Viewed

Of the 4,810 royally initiated irrigation projects, only eight were actually given auspicious names by King Rama IX himself, said Thongpleo Kongchan, director-general of the Royal IrrigationDepartment.

The projects named by the late monarch are:

Mae Ngad Somboon Chon Dam

King Rama IX renamed the dam on January 16, 1986 before presiding over its opening ceremony the following month. Formally known as Mae Ngad Dam, it is based on the Nam Ngad River, a territory of the Ping River. The dam is located in Chiang Mai’s Mae Taeng. The Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (Egat) built a hydropower plant at the site in 1985, with a generating capacity of 9,000 kilowatts. It is able to produce 19 million kilowatts per hour.

Mae Kuang Udom Thara Dam

This 66-metre wide, 610-metre long dam is based on Mae Kuang River in Chiang Mai’s Doi Saket district. The dam, which was named by the late monarch on February 18, 1995, supplies water to 13 sub-districts in Chiang Mai and Lamphun, covering approximate 175,000 rai. This project was part of the Mae Kuang basin irrigation development plan after the construction of the Pha Khao Dam in 1935, which was later renovated, and its capacity expanded to cover 72,750 rai. After the late king inspected the renovation work on March 4, 1976, he briefed the Royal Irrigation Department on developing the Mae Kuang River and finding ways of providing farming land to the people.

Pasak Cholasid

The royally initiated project, completed on February 19, 1989, was personally named by King Rama IX on November 25, 1999. The project was designed by the monarch to solve both water shortages as well as floods in Bangkok and surrounding areas brought by the overflowing Pasak River. The dam, located in Lop Buri’s Phattana Nikhom district, is believed to be the longest in the country and can store an average of 2,400 million cubic metres of water a year.

Utok Viphachaprasit Water Gate

The name of the project, meaning the ability to successfully separate fresh water from saltwater, was given by King Rama IX, when he initiated the project. It was the primary chapter of the Pak Phanang River development project and construction began on October 1, 1999. The water gate blocks seawater from flowing into the river and stores fresh water for human consumption. It also supports the natural resources in the Pak Phanang area.

Khun Dan Prakan Chon Dam

Located in Nakhon Nayok’s Muang district, this project was initiated by the late monarch to help alleviate the problem of water shortage in Nakhon Nayok and other provinces nearby. The dam can hold up to 224 million cubic metres of water.

Khwae Noi Bamrung Dan Dam

Located in Phitsanulok’s Wat Bot district, this dam can hold up to 769 million cubic metres of water and irrigate about 151,166 rai of farmland in Khwae Noi irrigation area and 250,000 rai in the Chao Phraya irrigation area during the dry season. The project was completed in 2008, after King Rama IX initiated the project on December 4, 1995.

Thorani Naruemit or Kam watergate

This project located in Nakhon Phanom’s That Phanom district was also initiated by King Rama IX and completed on September 12, 2011.

Lam Pha Yang water diversion project

The late monarch initiated the diverting of water from the Huai Pai Reservoir to replenish the Lampayang Reservoir in order to expand irrigation areas as well as solve the problems of the flooding and water shortage in Kalasin’s Khao Wong district.

To celebrate its 44th anniversary, Sai Jai Thai Foundation under Royal Patronage and Siam Paragon have organized “Sai Jai Thai Week”, an event running from September 23 to 29 at Lifestyle Hall featuring more than 2,000 hand-crafted gift items and products created by foundation members.

All proceeds from sales will go to charitable causes under the foundation.

Her Royal Highness Princess Soamsawali Krom Muen Suddhanarinatha graciously appointed Her Royal Highness Princess Bajrakitiyabha Narendiradebyavati to kindly preside over the opening of the event on Monday.

Elaborative handbags and a wide variety of handicrafts have been created and made from pieces of fabric and leather donated by many companies, as well as reusable and fashionable products made by disabled war veterans under the Sai Jai Thai Foundation.

The foundation was set up in 1975 after His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej The Great and Her Majesty Queen Sirikit The Queen Mother benevolently spoke about fostering veterans and their families. HM King Bhumibol Adulyadej The Great graciously appointed HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn to be chairman of the foundation to help war veterans earn a living despite their disabilities. The foundation’s training programmes include leather work, tailoring, woodwork and painting.

The opening ceremony featured a special performance with the theme being a throne celebration performed by leading actress Diana Flipo. She wore the latest collection of silk with prints of seven flowers and was joined by more than 30 guest models. Renowned singer Pijika Jittaputta performed a mini-concert on stage.

Product highlights include a limited collection of bags and satin silk scarves with wild bird prints designed by national artist in applied arts (architecture) Nithi Sathapitanon. The scarves aim to raise environmental awareness. There will also be a demonstration on mosaic painting. Shoppers can personalise the hand-painting style on the products they purchase at the event.

Thanpuying Puengjai Sinthawanon, foundation committee and deputy manager, said that Sai Jai Thai Week has been held continuously to promote the mission of helping military veterans and their families earn a living.

“By providing them with vocational training, they can make money from the products they produce. At present, there are more than 4,000 families throughout the country who are the foundation’s members. We still follow their Majesties’ wishes to foster them to live sustainably by helping them earn a living. Meanwhile, many colourful products under the Kamlangjai Project, or Inspire Project, graciously initiated by HRH Princess Bajrakitiyabha, will add to the event.”

Said Sub-Lieutenant Suwit Srisrok, 70: “Although I have long retired, the foundation still provides me with the opportunity to work. I had no knowledge about leatherwork, but Sai Jai Thai Foundation trained me. It has now been more than 30 years that I, a disabled veteran, can make a living by making leather products. It was the late King Bhumibhol’s great benevolence that initiated the Sai Jai Thai Foundation.”
