Philippine Fashion Week Spring Summer 2013: Burdang Taal and My Top 5 Picks

As a fashion design student, I have to attend at least one show at Philippine Fashion Week. Even if I got several invites, I decided to attend only one show because I'm too busy at school and I don't want to watch alone.

What I wore
Top: The Vintage in My Closet, Leggings: Debenhams
Shoes: Schutz, Bag: Kultura Filipino, Necklace: Gift Market

I chose the Burdang Taal show because I feel that it was meant for me. After all, I am all about advocating the Philippine culture through fashion and I would love to create clothes using Philippine fibers. So what show can serve me this purpose better than the Burdang Taal show.

All White: Vintage Cher and Moi!

I love vintage! That's why I'm opening my new online shop, The Vintage in My Closet, in less than 72hrs. Aside from vintage, I also love Cher! So I guess it make sense to say that I love vintage Cher!!!

Vintage Cher

I may not have existed yet during the 70's until the early 80's but since I love Cher, thanks to Will and Grace, I did some research about her. I found out that she was fabulous way before I was brought to this world.

Flash Interview with Mark dela Peña (featuring his 2012 Fall Menswear Collection)

Since the new term is about to start next week, I went to FIP Makati to finalize the classes that I will take. I've decided to take Basic Pattern Making, Basic Menswear, and Basic Sewing.

I am really excited for this term, because after developing my illustrations skills via Basic and Advance Fashion Design I will now learn the basics of construction.

Before and After Fashion Design Class

I still can't believe that a few months ago, I am just dreaming of creating decent sketches of my own designs. I've always knew that I wanted to do fashion since I was young and now I really believe that I am slowly getting there.

Chanel Spring 2013 RTW and the Hula Hoop Bag

I've been so busy lately with my new project, The Vintage in My Closet, that I rarely got a chance to sleep. Who knew that working on an online shop's details is quite tedious. I'm just so happy that in 7days, my new online shop will be opening.

So in relation to my online shop, let's talk about the vintage aesthetic of Chanel and how it was treated with a modern twist by Karl Lagerfeld for it's Summer 2013 RTW... and of course we will talk about that show stopping Hula Hoop Bag.

The Vintage in my Closet

Today marks another first for me. Today I decided to put up my first online shop!

Sketches, Projects, and FIP Makati!

It was one busy week! Aside from watching The Phantom of the Opera and getting my prizes from Soul BGC, of course I have to give time to what I enjoy most... school work!!!

My seat work in Advance Fashion Design

Four months ago, I can't even draw a decent adult figure. When I started in Basic Fashion Design, my first drawing is so disturbing that I even proclaimed that my goal after the course is to be the "most improved."

Don't get me wrong, I may not be the best illustrator in class but if you've seen where I came from, trust me, you will definitely  agree. Check this post to see for yourself.

Bonifacio Global City and My Evolving Fashion Sense

Tuesday, I got a copy of Bonifacio Global City's Official Magazine Soul BGC.

As I was flipping through the pages of the magazine, I saw my picture on page 4. I am very surprised to know that I won their contest and I am their Reader of the Month!

The Day I Fell in Love with the Phantom of the Opera

It was around 11:00AM when I received a text message from a friend asking me if I want to sneak a peak at the backstage of The Phantom of the Opera, and without any second thoughts I immediately replied with a big YES! That was the beginning of my really interesting day.
