Thai historical period struck a powerful chord of nostalgia for traditional culture and fashion.

The latest blockbuster series “Love Destiny,” based on a novel of the same name by Rompaeng, hooked both Thai audiences with its compelling story and witty usage of Thai prose, but it is the show’s recreation of ancient Ayutthaya that makes it a hit. And one of the critical parts in conjuring the past is the stellar Thai traditional dress which rekindled the people’s interest in the elegant period costumes once again.

So inspired by the massive viewership, the Thai government encourages its citizen to wear traditional outfits during outings. Mass tourists, dressed in period costumes, flocked to the ancient ruined temples and palaces of Ayutthaya to pose for pictures. With such popularity for traditional fashion, owners of Thai rental clothing store have reported a surge in demand for period dresses by consumers, with revenue increased 4 – 5 times and turned profit.

The “Love Destiny” wave is a great example of a new phenomenon influencing consumer behaviors, which inspires government and businesses to strategize new marketing plans to advertise their products and services. Anyone who can keep up with trends quickly is destined to benefit greatly.
