I was not able to watch the show of Don Protasio for the Cambodia Fashion Week, as I arrived on the third day of the event, to attend the remaining shows and closing party of Singapore’s Women Fashion Week. I asked Don if I can shoot his collection on the street of Phnom Penh instead.

Entitled Dissection, Protasio’s collection is inspired by nomad, presented in the cut-out garments that were gathered along his journey and were put together to form a design. He used layering, reducting and assembling cut-outs in his collection that comes in grey, white, black and military green colors. Protasio, known for his androgynous design aesthetic, was already featured in F Magazine, Desirs de Voyage and Travel & Leisure. His shop is located in Siem Reap with stockist in Amansara.
