On the Street. Shangri-La Girls, Lauttasaari, Helsinki.

Street Style Helsinki. Shangri-La Girls.

These girls I met in Studio Shangri-La opening party. I'm sorry, but this will be a little Helsinki-centric post.

I am happy to say that the new players have appeared in my neighbourhood. Just to mention few, yoga studios, culture center Sähinä and at the end of summer Studio Shangri-La opened doors. It is the homeland of Burlesque Culture in Helsinki. There you can take part in their dance classes like Burlesque dance and Shimmy n’Shake. There is weekend Dance Workshops with guest stars like Miss Chrissy Kiss. They also offer Seasonal Yoga, pilates and body care. Nice package indeed.

In addition they have a performing group The Shangri-La School of Showgirls. Maybe you’d like to hire them to perform in your Pre Christmas party?

What I’m dreaming of is that the studio would be a perfect place to organize live drawing class. Croquis drawing and the models would be the burlesque-people. At least at the opening party the people looked fabulous. Feminine tattooed ladies in high heels. I wanted to draw every second person in the party.

If you feel like your inner cabaret queen has never had place to flourish, this might be your place.

It seems that there are several Shangri-Las around the globe. So I better give a direct link to their Shangri-La Facebook-page. So you can act if you feel like it.

By the way, I have no connection with Shangri-La, I'm just spreading the good news.


On the Street. Yellow Sunshine Coat, Baana, Helsinki.

Street Style Helsinki, Yellow Sunshine Coat.

Wow, is it sunshine approaching towards me, I thought when I was walking along Baana.
In case you don’t know, Baana is a wonderful bicycle path from Ruoholahti to Helsinki City Center and it’s meant only for bicyclists and pedestrians. A luxury in it is that there isn’t a single traffic light to break the journey. But let’s get back to the main subject. The sunshine was on a stylish lady. Beautiful felted woolen coat wrapping like envelope around her. I like.


On the Street. Walk the Australian Silky Terrier, Laru, Helsinki.

Street Style Helsinki. Going with Australian Silky Terrier.

We have earlier discussed here at Flash For Zonzon about the similarity that dogs and their owners have. Recently I have spotted new candidates to this dog and his best friend -series. This lady with her Australian Silky Terrier form a lovely pair. The colour harmony is perfect and they are both tiny and – erm – silky.
