About Me –
Growing up as a little girl in the North-East of Thailand over 30 years ago it soon became obvious to me that following my family’s footsteps in farming would not be for me. As the youngest of five siblings I would avoid at all costs heading to the fields. My talent lay in selling the produce instead! I knew very soon that relocating to the real melting pot that is Bangkok would provide me with the opportunity to equip myself with the skills and platform to fulfil my real passion.
Already trained in flower arranging, art, clothing design and educated at the Queen Sau Wat Pa PongSi King Rama 5 School I embarked on a marketing degree and that gave me the confidence and knowledge to promote my fashion brand KAJINUK.
KAJINUK is the brainchild of marketing graduate Jintana Nacharee.
The name KAJINUK is derived from a simple Thai greeting ‘KA’ followed by ‘JIN’ and immensely proud to be a fully-fledged British citizen operating in the ‘UK’.
I am most passionate about family, Thai culture, beauty and world fashion. In 2015 I organised the first Thai cultural Festival at Runnymede, just a stone’s throw away from Windsor (famous for the sealing of the Magna-Carta). One of the many attractions at the two-day event was a Thailand fashion catwalk show and Thai beauty contest also organised by me and showcased some of my creations as well as the creations of other Thai designers. Importantly it put out my brand name KAJINUK to over 10,000 visitors!
KAJINUK has since contributed, sponsored and has been invited to support numerous Thai events (charitable and non-charitable including St. John's Ambulance and the NSPCC).

Fashion and event organising has always been a strong passion of mine. Last year in 2018 I designed my own ladies Thai inspired collection from Thai fine silk and had it manufactured in Thailand. I flew out to Thailand to have the items professionally photographed whilst adorned by beautiful Thai models, including our very own Namoey Chapnaman (Miss Grand Thailand 2018). The same collection was very well received at the House of iKons catwalk show during London Fashion Week in September. The striking yellow dress worn by Namoey was requested to appear in a new movie ‘Shadowlands’. Filming has now finished, and I am extremely proud of my achievements to date and look forward to seeing the movie and especially the dress worn by the leading actress!
I have been gathering momentum now for the last few years each time trying something more ambitious. This year I am putting together my largest indoor event that will include many Thai cultural aspects such as Arts, Music, Food, Fashion whilst allowing time for business sponsors to promote their services and/or products.
