This one has been a long time coming. We are constantly surrounded by the most talented, smartest, wonderful women. Seriously, Phnom Penh is a cool lady town. And they’re stylish to boot, bringing pieces together from all the places they’re from, are currently, or have been. I wanted to capture all of this on my camera and make it a monthly feature while I’m at it. Every outfit is a winner, so let the uniform games begin!
Julia’s one of the wonderful people we are so lucky to be friends with in Phnom Penh. In reverse chronological order: she’s one of the bestest jewelry models, she shot the heck out of Cait’s first show (here, here, here, and here), she directs the bejeesus out of the communications department for a local organization that helps people in southeast Asia access clean water, and before her move to Asia, she was a producer for Canada’s national public broadcaster (our NPR to my American friends). Also, she’s from Toronto. Need I say more?
I see Julia pretty much every work day morning in a week. We’ll just have finished some crazy early workout, and I’ll emerge out of the locker room, as quickly as possible, in whatever I decided was clean and borderline viable for the office, with my hair all over the place. But Julia, a few minutes later, will saunter out in her typically super happy post-workout cheer looking absolutely perfect in what could only be described as the perfect uniform. I couldn’t help but notice how put together she is, while still carrying some bright or fun element (check out that Khmer Creations necklace fashioned out of a spoon!), and always bicycle ready (which also means uber comfortable). Each outfit always looks really light while also fitting her so well. Her pieces come from all over, some skinny fit pants from back home, tailored pieces from Phnom Penh, very cute flats and bags from Chatuchak Market, the list goes on. So naturally, I had to shoot the heck out of her. And that’s exactly what we did for a week this past month.
PS: 8am light is amazing!
