The founder of Popbirdy, chi Hanh, used to be my flatmate, when I stayed in Saigon for three months two years ago. During a very short time we have gone through a lot together, and I'd do anything for her. I was there when she founded Popbirdy, and what I admire about her is, that if she wants to do something, she just does it. From one day to the next Popbirdy was born, fabric was bought, labels were produced and shootings planned. Two years later she is successfully running her own business with her own shop at 42 Nguyen Hue as well. Her designs are rather minimalistic and remind me of Topshop. The quality is great, and yeah, Popbirdy is definitely worth being checked out.
Yesterday we didn't really shoot a full Lookbook, but just two looks, because some of the new arrivals turned out to be different from how they were supposed to be. I know that feeling. Like when I receive new products and the quality is not as good as I wish it was. Super annoying ! Shot with Missyyy, a girl who I've been seeing around on Facebook a lot already : ) Here are the results:
I must admit that Vietnam is so much fun to me. There is always something to do, and everyone is so easygoing. But that maybe is just because I'm lucky and know the right people to help and support me. Btw, don't you think I look unnatural with these dark hair ? I feel like it doesn't look natural on me at all, but I was born with black hair, so it should look natural on me right ? So weird haha. I still think ash colour suits me best, but dying my hair again will kill it and I don't want to harm my hair anylonger : (
