Fashion photography in Bhutan

Sony C. Tenzin, a Bhutanese friend of mine, who is an actress and a fashion designer, asked me to take pictures of her self designed textiles. She is using traditional fabrics to create clothes that are contemporary and traditonal at the same time. Very talented Deki Yangden -who later became a flight attendant- was modelling for us.
It was my intention for these fashion photos to go just in the middle of everyday Thimphu street life, the capital of Bhutan. So we did some kind of improvising photography, trying to interact with the ever changing surroundings, situations, and encounters.
