The Slip Dress, Fair Fashionista Blog

A slip dress is such a versatile piece, and I am a big fan. You can wear it with a jumper and sneakers for a casual, yet elegant look, or pair it with heels and a nice bag and you are ready for a night out.

We just finished working on our slip dress, just in time for the fall season, so I thought I would share a little sneak peek behind the scenes.

Visiting Yary from CWSG
Visiting Yary from CWSG

The last time I was in Cambodia, Yary from CWSG asked me, if i wanted to come by for coffee one of the days? I would love to, so one Sunday afternoon, Kanary and I took a tuk-tuk to the outskirts of Phnom Penh, where Yary lives with her daughter and their dog Panda.

Lotus Silk Phnom Penh

Lotus Silk was founded by Vannary San back in 2003 with the purpose of promoting local silk sourced from weaver communities in the provinces. The social enterprise also has several full-time employees at the beautiful showroom/workshop in Phnom Penh, including a group of female tailors, who are offered a nice work environment and a salary significantly higher than what the average garment factory worker makes.

French barrettes with Peace Silk bow
French barrettes with Peace Silk bow

Our new hair bows look like candy, don’t you think? The bows are made from organic Peace Silk which is silk made without killing the silk worms. We use raw silk, which has a somewhat coarser texture and a more discreet luster compared to silk satin, and the bows come in 3 neutral colors that go with everything. Perfect for those days when a scrunchie might be too casual, but you still want your hair up without too much work.

Curved sleep mask, Peace Silk, Fair Fashionista
Curved sleep mask, Peace Silk, Fair Fashionista

If you travel a lot, or you just need to sleep during daytime, you know that a good sleep mask is priceless. I have tried so many sleep masks through the years, but I have never managed to find one that ticked all the boxes. So I decided to make my own, and together with the women at CWSG we started working on the best sleep mask ever.

Chimmuwa in Mae Sot
Chimmuwa in Mae Sot

Chimmuwa is a part of Borderline Collective in Mae Sot. The group was founded by Sylvia, who has many years of experience from various NGO projects, and Nor Nor, who is the group’s designer. The purpose of Chimmuwa is to create job opportunities for young refugee and migrant women from Myanmar. These women often have difficulties finding employment and thus have a high risk of being exploited in poorly paid jobs or as victims of trafficking.

Weavers Project in Takeo
Weavers Project in Takeo

Weavers Project was started by the social enterprise Sonas World with the purpose of creating sustainable economic growth in rural communities in Cambodia. Cambodia has a strong tradition of weaving, but it is a dying craft due to the competition from cheaper, factory-made fabric as well as the declining interest among the young generation of learning the skills of weaving.
