Sidewalk Style – Week 8 With Halah

Feb, 19th, 2014

I really liked how Halah coordinated the colors of her head scarf, sweater and pants. Especially since they all came from stores. Her headscarf came from Saudi Arabia and her long sweater was bought in Vancouver. She’s studying to be a Micro Biologist and enjoys dancing.
Several of these images were featured in the Community section of the Asian Pacific Post newspaper.
Halah’s wearing:
Long Sweater: Sasso Moda

Sidewalk Style – Week 27

Jul, 6th, 2012

Fatima was soooo sweet! Like most women I’ve met, she’s seen her fair share of unflattering photos of herself. So naturally she was camera shy when we met.
Her headscarf and Ali Babba pants made her stand-out in the crowd. Then if you look closely, you’ll notice she’s expertly mixed and matched four colors! As we chatted she shared her secret. She had her blue and green headscarf custom dyed. Plus she chose the grey fabric and had her blouse custom made. Her shoes were bought at a street market in Pakistan.

Sidewalk Style – Week 23

Nuha was a bit surprised by my request. But honestly, I’ve grown accustomed to seeing women in miniskirts & heels. I was confronted with this realization when she walked by. I find it interesting how she combined different pieces from clothing stores on Robson St. to create her own personal style.

Dress BCBGMAXAZRIA (or Banana Republic)

   I took this photo at an outdoor festival. By random chance I met Samar and her
   girlfriends later the same evening at a coffee shop. She loved the photo.
