Zhai – Eco-Clothing Photo Shoots

Over the past 2 years I have done several clothing photo shoots with Danielle Champagne. She’s a super-efficient Canadian who owns and runs Zhai and Santorini, two Singapore-based eco-clothing companies. Here is a selection of photos from some of those shoots, showing some of Zhai’s beautiful range of bamboo earth-friendly clothing. Outfits by Zhai’s sister company Santorini, which is known for its high quality linen, engineered fit and intricate detailing, are also featured in the outdoor photo shoot.

Founded in 2009, Zhai was the first eco-clothing fashion brand with original designs in Singapore. It carries a full collection of styles, designed by Danielle and made from bamboo fiber. Although that outdoor shoot at Singapore’s West Coast Park was a lot of fun, it was our first and last. Given the heat and humidity we never returned to the outdoors – it was a challenge to keep the models’ hair and makeup looking pristine! We now do all shoots in the studio. There’s also a photo of Danielle Champagne herself as well as Gayathri Menon, the wonderfully talented stylist who does all the hair and makeup.
