PICHULIK


PICHULIK accessories have been making a big impact on the local fashion scene of late- they are bright and bold and beautifully crafted, a nice departure from all the delicate pastels of the last few months.

STR CRD STRT STYL


I attended the urban youth culture event dubbed STR CRD (but where are the vowels you ask? Duh, cool kids don't need vowels. Ever.) and captured some of the moments from this years event.
