Mr. Takahiro Nishimura, Chief Operation Officer of UNIQLO Thailand stated “UNIQLO's "Made for All" brand concept encapsulates the company's vision of providing clothing that is made for all people. UNIQLO believes that individuality is found not in the clothing itself, but in the people who wear the clothes. UNIQLO sees clothing as an element that can be freely interchanged and combined to complement each individual person's character, style, and much more. UNIQLO felt that a diverse cast of brand ambassadors with a range of ages, professions, and genders was necessary to convey its philosophy.”

“A cast of 6 Thais who excel in various professions was selected to help establish the UNIQLO brand as a local favorite in Thailand. The cast includes Dome, who is continually seeking new challenges as a singer, actor, model, and DJ, and Yaya, a student and model who has branched out into a new endeavor as an actress. Like Dome and Yaya, the other members of the cast are unique in their own particular ways, and all sharing a strong sense of self-belief in their own potential. Through these 6 distinctive characters that UNIQLO will comprehensively express the appeal of the brand.” Mr. Nishimura added

Dome — Pakorn Lum gave a sharp insight about Bangkok, “Bangkok is like a mirror. If you love Bangkok, Bangkok will love you back.”

Yaya- Urassaya Sperbund stated in Voices of Bangkok that, “I’m originally from Pattaya. When I first came to Bangkok, I was not used to the crowds and traffic congestion. But after living in Bangkok for a while, I came to enjoy the lifestyle here more than in my hometown. Now I see things from a much different perspective. As for the crowds in the big city, they give me a chance to meet many different kinds of people and have a variety of experiences. Bangkok and Thailand are both simply awesome.”
