Stories of Nepal

When Jay, the photographer behind Stories Of Nepal
 reached the top of a hill, 
he met these two little fellas. 
The one with the yellow beanie looked really discontent
 and was talking to himself.
Jay asked him what the matter was and he said that
 he was upset that his brother won’t return 
his pen and his notebook.

// Stories of Nepal //

I could not continue with school.
When father became ill, mother 
couldn’t afford my fees. 
I started working around home, mostly 
But the crops hardly support my big family.
It’s just something to get by. 
But I’ll be leaving for Malaysia soon. 
And I am happy. 
I am looking forward to do something 
that pays. 
Finally, I have hope that I will be able
 to support my family financially.”

It is always inspiring to see
how the fashion stylists
 put together
outfits with 

different shapes, colors
and structures, all 
though it is sometimes a bit
too edgy you can always pic
and choose the elements you like
about it. 

Like the combo of the cold blueish
color palette combined
with soft brown color, 

or how the stylist has used
our Yak & Merino
wool "Meha" armwarmers
as legwamers!
Multiple usage- we love it!

And the bare, rocky background
really add a lot to these pics 
and make them so much more interesting! 

Well done @stellamagasinet :)
