Meet Sara Traore, a 23 year-old Toronto native who recently returned home after finishing school at McGill (smart cookie alert!). This girl is a world traveller, if you couldn’t already tell from the first three photos I posted above. No, those are not shots of exotic southern Ontario, or rural Quebec, believe it or not. They are actually from a stunning collection of photos from her time in Antigua and Croatia.
Sara’s work was brought to my attention by the girls of Shoppalu, who I have collaborated with for the new series of What I Wore. I was attracted to Sara’s work for its exoticness and the incredible punchy colours she captures. Since spring/summer is upon us, I really wanted the new series to have a fun and bright vibe to reflect the new season, and Sara was obviously the perfect person for this.
