My Own Version Of Biker Chic

Honestly, the weather here in Cambodia is too hot for leather but I can't help wear this cute (ok! ok! very small!) Prada leather vest I got from the thriftshop. The trick is to stay indoors so you remain cool wearing the look. Suffer for fashion as they say.

To Store Things With

Been under the radar with my posts here but in exchange I've been steadily establishing my move here in Phnom Penh. Yes, Phnom Penh Designers Week 2013 last June was crazy but it felt good to finally do it. A week after I also presented an edited collection for Naga World of 14 looks comprising of pieces inspired by patterns we've developed before. I was also swamped with shoots and other editorial duties for F Magazine. I got to squeeze in a lookbook shoot for my fall/winter 2013 collection and my spring/summer 2014 menswear collection. The menswear collection will be shown in Iloilo by end of August. Somehow I also joined an exhibit in Sofitel So in Bangkok on the first day of this month with 2 pieces inspired by the fall/winter collection. And I even wrangled out a video to be shown with it. Strangely, everything felt organic and natural. The flow was quite smooth from one project to the other. No major hitches to worry about. And so today I felt like sharing another project I've been working on recently, it's a bag line. I plan to launch it for the opening of the showroom I'm sharing with my friends. I used the first sample today and showed it to a few friends. The response has been good but we still need to tweak a few kinks here and there. I'm quite excited about this!
