2011's Trends Forecast

Exactly 10:45pm, Wednesday, Jan. 5, 2011, Rxandy Capinpin, photographer, texted me if I'm free on Friday, for an editorial shoot for Manila Bulletin Newspaper? Certainly! Who would refuse such opportunity. As I hanged up, my brains crammed up, juggling on how will I able to pull out in just 1 day! Designers, brands, accessories, bags are in flying colors in my mind... but again I know I'm up for a challenge. It's a high risk that I have to make several options, one is local designers. Local designers come so accessible anytime, anywhere! They are stylist's lifesaver, my celebrities, and always fool proof!
No offense, seriously, I have high regards of them, they are my priority for pulls, my fair share of help in showcasing thier ingenuity, and so as promoting thier local talents.

NOTE: Major brands require at least 2-3 days of formal request thru fax/email, then another day for an approval.

Check out my 2nd published work in Manila Bulletin Newspaper, this time, its an editorial spread in Style Weekend, special section of the Newspaper every Friday.

The Cover. The shoot is about Manila Bulletin: 2011's Fashion and Beauty Forecast.
Opening cover story. 1st Look: Playsuit. Contrast-stripe, strapless jumpsuit by Noel Crisostomo, bag and accessories: Maldita, Glorrieta 5, and shoes by Gaupo Shoe Couture, Greenbelt 5.
Thanks again Rxandy, I owe you bigtime. Caloy of MB also, for trusting me another project. Let's not forget Ms. Joyce, MB'S Fashion Editor, who acknowledge my 1st work (CLICK). IT really humbles me. Curtain Call: The casts: Caloy, Babe, Katchie, Yara, Dane, Me and Rxandy. This is so funny, because Babe, model's assistant, teaches these models our local dialect, including Pokpok! Yeah, interesting words to learn ;)During the return: Gaupo Shoe Couture, gosh, truly shoegasm here! Thanks to Ms. Ericka who always supports me, and The MB.

Accessories from Maldita, Glorrieta 5. I just love accessories, and who doesn't?

My 2 Angels: Dane and Shannelle, my two nieces. Supporters during the shoot. From returns to helping the model get dressed. Chillax in BK, Glorrieta, after a job well done. Thanks guys, hope you had a blast! 2nd Look: Biker Chic. Colored paneled dress by John Guarnes, black leather jacket by Calliope MOA, black liquid legging by Terranova MOA, and diamond guitar brooch: Stylist's own - Philosophy Men. 3rd Look: Stripes.

Lucky 10: Loungerie. Nude playsuit: Mica Santayana, lace bodice: Calliope MOA, and copper Tassled shoe: Gaupo Shoe Couture, Greenbelt 5.
First I thought, what if Rxandy or Caloy is challenging me, given I have only 1 day to do pulls and create 10 different, specific looks for a shoot? Then, I realize, after the drama, they just plainly presented me an opportunity, it has definitely a challenge in there, but clearly, its another experience whether I give up or not. Between those grasps of SANA, and I-KNOW-I-CAN-DO-IT thinking, in the end, actually it's a matter of CHOOSING your attitude! Always be positive, and knowing you can really pull it off, without really dragging someone else. Truly, To God be the glory!
