The essay is dedicated to our Indigo Grandmas and the next generation of artisans in Isan and beyond, of whom we are most grateful and inspired. Alas, thank you also to Apichatpong Weerasethakul, it was through his films that we first journeyed to Isan in the first place.

Diane Pernet is a world-renowned fashion critic and video journalist based in Paris, France. Pernet was one of the earliest fashion journalists to embrace the power of the Internet, first through a column in online editions of Elle and Vogue and later through her own site, A SHADED VIEW ON FASHION (www.asvof.com) from 2005. Having founded ASVOFF in 2008 Pernet is widely considered to have incubated the "fashion film" from its infancy to the popular genre that it has become today.
