Street fashion has always thrived in Bangkok.  The confluence of European design with modern Thai style has led to some dynamic and always interesting style and color combinations.  There is a large degree of confidence in the way younger Thais assemble their wardrobes.  Also take a look at my other recent postings from Central World for more examples.

There are some influences from Japan and perhaps Hong Kong, though these cities tend to be of  lesser importance and somewhat niche in their appearance.  If you want to see street fashions in Bangkok, spend some time around Siam Square, and other nearby shopping areas such as MBK, Siam Paragon and Discovery and Central World. These shopping destinations are all within one kilometer of one another.
