Anyways. here it is.
I WENT TO PHILIPPINE FASHION WEEK LAST MAY 26, 2012.
I visited 2 shows
1. Grand Allure Collection
2. Chris Jasler - Veejay Floresca show
Like a typical fashion week, in one seating you get to see more than one designer's collection.
Anyway, what I noticed
IT WAS UNGLAMOROUS. What a front. When I went there I didn't know that you have to fall in line, and with first come first serve basis, IT WAS UP ALL OVER AGAIN. So there I was in my outfit, falling in line. Good thing for my iPod and my notebook (from Starbuck's ;) ) I pre-occupied myself with music and writing.
Here were my notes:
- We look like hot messes.
- Apparently, I'm still dressed down.
- Lots of sheer maxi-skirts (so last, last, last season)
- Girls wear heels so high they just drag the shoes (tiis ganda!)
- A lot of people are cutting in line, uncivilized much?
- A lot of fashion dont's*
* I WANTED TO TELL THEM THAT LADY GAGA'S CONCERT WAS OVER. HAHAHAHAHAHA! THAT'S HOW FASHION DON'T THEY WERE BUT TO HELL WITH IT, IT'S "FASHION WEEK" GO!
So the first show I went to was by:
They presented a 35-piece collection each.
The show started with a lot of ads (understandable), then Christian Bautista's song "Unphotographable" played.
Fun Fact: Claire from ANTM Cycle 10 is a Cal Carrie's model. I thought she would go far. Anyways....
Chris Jasler- this is the rock collection with every collection featuring denim. Started off with a model in his briefs and a bag. Inside the bag is a tank top and the bag became pants. GO! the men wore heel-less shoes. I wanted them!
Melchor Guinto - The soundtrack was "Chipmunk" versions of songs like "What Makes You Beautiful" :|
Philipp Tampus - I love the blazers from his menswear collection ;)
Veejay Floresca- I super loved the fact that he used "barong" materials (is it pina fiber?) to create evening looks. Although some looked like "curtain couture" I mean the curtains were made into a dress. ;)
I love the fact that the show ended with Madonna's "Gang Bang." That was a plus one for me! ;D
As for the Grand Allure collection. There were 10 designers that included Fanny Serrano and his collection was my favorite. Didn't get to take pics because I was sooooo far away. That's what I get for not being VIP. :|
(I was seated at the 2nd row so please forgive me for the pics)
