Fashion tourism

This model had a lot of attitude and obviously loved her work. Her name is Touch Srey Leak.
Long-legged models in glittering gowns brought the Asean Tourism Forum 2011 to a close tonight at a gala dinner and closing ceremony at NagaWorld. The organisers mis-judged the numbers and some guests couldn't get a seat in the main dining room, instead they received free food and drink in one of the hotel's restaurants. The lucky ones that did manage to find a table placing were treated to speeches, a live band with singers, a series of awards and presentations to Khmers artists whilst eating and a fashion show that went down well with everyone. Not sure what it has to do with tourism but everyone seemed to enjoy it nonetheless. I sat with an eclectic group on my table including Pen Sam Ol, the vice dean of music at the royal university of fine arts, and his wife Khlot Vibolla, the head librarian at the national library. It's all too easy to pick holes but by and large the ATF was a great success for the Cambodian organisers in my view and though I'm not sure how much the event cost to put on, I think most of the participants will feel the same.

Long gowns and peacock feathers were much in evidence. This is film star Chorn Chan Leakhena.

A very unusual array of balls adorned this dress, worn by actress Mak Sen Sonita
