The story of Madame Flamingo begins with Thai native, Pantila Promfang. Her passion for shoes and heels began at a young age. It was her mother who recalls her playing dress up and walking around the house in her high heels.
After graduating with a Bachelors of Arts in Thailand, she pursued her dreams of becoming a shoe designer. She then followed her dreams of shoe design and shoe making to Accademia Riaci, Florence, Italy. This is where Pantila learned the craft of shoe making with an authentic shoe craftsman. After returning to Bangkok, Thailand with all that she had learned and her growing passion for shoe design she started her own brand, Madame Flamingo. Madame Flamingo began in 2008 with a small team of unskilled employees in her own shoe factory. Madame Flamingo insisted that each of her employees be unskilled, so that she could teach them the basics of shoe making herself. Since then her brand has grown to include 5 stores.
For Pantila or "Madame Flamingo," her shoes are an individual expression of her own self and style. By knowing Madame Flamingo shoes you know Madame Flamingo herself.
