Thank you so much MEGA and Patrick Ty for including me in your tight list. It makes me strive more to improve my craft. I'm really honored to be included alongside talented designers Jerome Ang, Chris Diaz, Marlon Rivera, Veejay Floresca, Pablo Cabahug, Sassa Jimenez, and Joel Escober.
Honestly, I wasn't really sure how the audience would react to my collection. I've always shown very dark sensibilities. Despite the siganture layering and slouch that I love doing there wasn't much black pieces in what I showed. It was really my goal to make it airy and light hence the creamy white palette. I'm really happy with this collection and I have been wearing some pieces quite often.
This soda tab encrusted tank dress took a lot of Diet Coke to complete.
The braided ties was made for me by Spoolworks, Loven Ramos' studio and the woven bracelets by Wanderlust, Elizabeth Kiester's label.
