Wanderlust Brought Her Here, Wanderlust Keeps Her Here

This is a wonderful story about an unusual woman who found her way to Cambodia as a tourist and is now applying her experience and vision as fashion-guru-slash-compassionate-global-citizen to make the world literally and figuratively a more beautiful place. Meet Elizabeth Kiester founder of Cambodia’s newest ‘lifestyle concept’ Wanderlust Cambodia:

“girl lives in new york. girl loves fashion, color, art, 5 inch heels and travel… girl works at big fashion mags and later, huge global fashion design companies. girl travels around the world in search of the cool and the new… girl goes to cambodia, and falls in love. falls in love with the country, the beautiful faces, the charming french colonial houses of siem reap; she is head over 5″ stiletto heels with the colors of this country, the smell of lemongrass, the sunset warming the verdant rice paddies, the yves-klein-blue shade of the sky…girl goes back to new york, ditches her job, sells her furniture, packs a few inappropriate but necessary heels, and heads back to the allure of siem reap, cambodia… girl goes back to new york, ditches her job, sells her furniture, packs a few inappropriate but necessary heels, and heads back to the allure of siem reap, cambodia… and the result is wanderlust, a lifestyle concept dedicated to giving girls gorgeousness, beautiful things handmade by the beautiful people of this beautiful country, beauty that easily translates to budapest, boston, battambang, bolivia, brighton or any beautiful place they call home.”

Wanderlust has one location in Siem Reap and another on Phnom Penh’s trendy Street 240. Their products are also available via their website and for those in the States, Wanderlast has recently teamed up with J Crew owned Madewell for a line of exclusive Wanderlast for Madewell articles.
