Coffee with Narnia & Shahani

While checking out the stuff at Marni's Room in Rockwell, moi and Narnia bumped into stylist par excellance Shahani Gania. Shahani has been responsible for some thought provoking images we have recently seen in the pages of Mega Magazine and other publications. His most recent editorial for Preview was sublime. He is now connected with Lifestyle Asia. We talked about fashion and all. He invited us for some refreshments at Starbucks and he ended up treating us. Nice guy. Norman Noriega is a fashion designer whom I've admired long before I really got serious with fashion. He was a finalist of the Mega Young Designers Competition. I remember distinctly his orange collection of re-imagined and re-invented common house dress ( duster dress). It was my fave. I think he represented the Philippines in a fashion competition in Japan. Mukahari yata. Recently he made fashion news by being declared in Paris by Concours Internationale des Jeune Creatur du Mode as Best Entry from the Philippines. Maldita ang lola! Taray! Norman is dear to my heart because we exchanged bags before. Mine was a non-label bag. He exchanged it with his Vivienne Westwood bag. Di lang talented, galante pa!hehehe
