In Thailand school uniforms are governed by strict rules, instructing the length of students hair, bows and even mandatory types of socks. As students across the country push back against what they call "archaic rules" calling for education reform under the broader pro-democracy movement.
One young clothing designer is throwing their support behind them in his own colourful way. Tin Tunsopon has given the uniform a makeover with oversized collars, flowy skirts and bold sleeve ruffles made from shoelaces.
"By recreating these uniforms and through various designs people can see that we should no longer be attached to the traditional uniforms," says Tin.
Protests sweeping through Thai high schools have been dubbed the Bad Student movement by its leaders. Students have made three-finger salutes inspired by the movie The Hunger Games and made bold fashion choices such as publicly hacking off their hair in protest.
Tin's creations are not just for fashion, there's an underlying message too. He wants to change people's mindsets that students are good or bad because of the way they wear their uniforms - that they should feel comfortable and creative.
He says, "The uniforms break away from the traditional structures, although still resembles the uniform they are creative. I want to support kids to be as creative as they can."
Tin calls this collection The Rule Breakers. It is made to order and can be worn by anyone.
