I'm a huge fan of this couple. Sadly, any photos from ImageShack aren't showing up for me. I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong.

Can you open the Tinypics links Lisele? If you can, then you didn't miss anything on those ImageShack. I've been updating her style since the begining, althought some members also posted some links, I think you pretty much saw everything.

Ah, how exquisite she is. I like how she used her shawl to secure her hair as she planted that bush; a very practical fashion accessory.

Happy belated birthday, Your Majesty, I hope you enjoyed that luscious-looking birthday cake!

Thank you for these. That first one though, not just Her Majesty looks incredible, but look at the Ladies around her. All those Saris are beyond stunning.

I do not know if there is a way to purchase Bhutan fashion outside the country,but there may be some shops that are specialising in tribal fashion,we have a few Hippie-shops in Austria where you can buy colourful Indian fashion and fabrics. We have a lot of immigrants who always bring part of their culture,fashion and art who sell it in special places,maybe you have similar shops in your country?
Or you may ask someone who travels a lot,they may be able to get something nice for you. Bhutan fashion is a little bit more difficult than other national dresses because it is less touristy than other countries in the region.

There must be a way of obtaining Bhutanese fabrics or the national costume/clothes of Bhutan. For women, the following appear to be the main elements of what a woman in Bhutan would wear: -

Kira - a long skirt
Wonju - a blouse
Toego - the jacket

So I guess if you do a Google search for the above items and refine the search with "shopping" you could find something!

You can get similar fabrics from Tibetan organisations.

This couple is just so exquisite; I love how the King engulfs her with his arm. And she's simply so beautiful in those jewel colors; the King's footwear in the second photos is really spiffy, too!
