Kullawit 'Ford' Laosuksri

Editor-in-Chief, Vogue Thailand

The editor launched the Thai edition of Vogue in 2013, with the first issue selling out almost immediately.

Biography

Kullawit Loasukri, or "Ford" as he is known amongst Asia’s high flyers, is one of very few male Vogue editor-in-chiefs around the world.

Vogue Thailand was launched both digitally and in print in 2013, responding to “a well-established media market and a strong appetite for luxury fashion and beauty among its sophisticated urban consumers,” according to Condé Nast International Chairman and Chief Executive Jonathan Newhouse . Vogue Thailand is the 21st edition of Vogue to launch worldwide, and Ford, with his prior experience as editor of Elle Thailand, took the media market by storm, with his first issue selling out within a matter of weeks.

The magazine has been on an upward trajectory ever since, with Ford seen as the undisputed key to the Thai fashion and luxury market.
