I designed some accessories for one of my class. We then shot it and added it in our exhibit in school. Was fun shooting it. My model Erika, was complaining that the necklace tickles. lol. (^_^) Good thing it doesnt show in the photos. haha~ (^_^)

The Plate Ring is a woven ring of silver beads. The necklace is a three-stringed silver bead and pin necklace. My inspirations for these accessories were comets, asteroids and meteors, ergo Stellar. The Photo was taken by friend Raecen Dimacali.at CameraCart. Was a fun shoot. Long but fun day. (^_^)

Black Parade

 All of these photos were taken by Raecen Dimacali. This was for the CT Exhibit we were preparing for AS Lobby. I made a beaded tulled skirt, a military jacket, and liquid tights for the shoot. The shoes, ok, it was really fierce and believe it or not, my friend got it from SM Department Store. I am amused at how department stores are able to catch up and even level up their aesthetic value in terms of design. They are now starting to take note of how the mass market (primarily composed of upper c to upper b with considerable disposable income and purchasing power) are rapidly becoming fashion sensitive. It may be due to the fact that the mass market is highly interspersed with information (fashion and beauty) unlike before. As these information are readily accessible (online, other media) to consumers, they are now able to adapt quickly to change compared to before when they would have to rely heavily on peers and other opinion leaders (celebrities). Anyway, going back to my clothes. hahahahahahahha~ it was a fun shoot and Erika, my model, was so fun and easy to work with. (^_^)

The Photos were taken by Raecen Dimacali at CameraCart. (^_^) Photo was part of the CT exhibit we had scheduled for this year. (^_^)

Test Shoot for Clothing Technology Exhibit

It was just a test shoot. So no professional models. Hahaha~ Luckily Lhenvil Paneda (a CT freshman, and an awesome makeup artist - he does magazine jobs already) was there with us. His class at the AVR room just finished and he was walking by and he saw the clothes we were pairing up. Hahahahaha~ Everything was so unplanned and random. lol. We were originally looking at the clothes we were preparing for the exhibit, checking if each of the clothes were and ready to be paired. Also, our blockmate, Kat, who got into Bunka Fashion College (Kenzo and Yohji Yamamoto graduated from Bunka, Japan's premiere fashion school) in Shibuya District under the Mogankabusho Scholarship program (damn, if only i knew they were offering scholarships for fashion design. haha~ back then whenever i would check for the Mogankabusho Scholarship, all i would see will be grants for math and science programs. haha~) was in Manila for her spring break, so we decided to have a fun shoot right there and then. lol. i love spontaneity. lol.
