Fair-trade bohemian chic travel lookbook
In what seems like a lifetime ago, we were in Oaxaca in Mexico working on a project. I thought that I love Mexico, but then I discovered Oaxaca and it took my love to a whole other level. The colours, the Zapotec culture, the cuisine, the people, the air, the art everything is magical in Oaxaca. If you have to put a destination on the very top of your list after the confinement, please consider Oaxaca you will not regret it. It’s a cultural gem that still managed to keep its authentic charms.
When I was packing for the trip back in Morocco, I remembered one of my favourite travel brands Likemary, so we decided to work together again and shoot a campaign during this trip. I’m happy to announce that we shot both photos and a video. So this article is in collaboration with Likemary.
Likemary, fair-traded timeless clothing pieces for the traveler and bohemian at heart.
Likemary is a fair-trade brand with very reasonable prices (which is rare) because there is no middle-man in their business model. Their collections are timeless and made with beautiful natural fabrics that are comfortable and stand the test of time.
All knitted accessories are hand made from hand spun wool by ladies in the Himalayas. These women are the sole providers for their families, as their husbands cannot work and the project provides most of them with their only source of income.
I did an interview with Nicky the founder of the brand three years ago. She’s a traveler herself, a philanthropist and an entrepreneur and one of favourite people in the fashion world.
I still have and wear the dresses from back then and they hold on perfectly. They are my favourite to wear while working from the beach house by the way.

Before Oaxaca, we spent some time in San Diego and Baja California, so the locations tell the story of our itinerary. Here is the lookbook, I hope that you’ll like it and I’m happy to say that I’m still very much enjoying my Likemary pieces to work comfortably from home as per my Work From Home rule No 2.
The links to the outfits are below the pictures and the video is at the end of the article. I encourage you to support independent and ethical businesses as much as you can especially in these times and I hope that you’re enjoying this article:
