One of the challenging shoot, to date, given 1 day preparation (requests, and pulls), the travelling time, overnight spent to Batangas, with 3 different locations, but really, can you complain the astonishing view, sumptuous food, and delightful staff, plus with THE exceptional teamwork in Punta Fuego, hell NO!
During PFW, I was already going gaga of some of the collections that I just love to grab and run for the shoot. So watch out for that, still drafting a huge production shoot, and hope I won't get cranky and crazy over this... hint: Tableau shoot in couture. Caloi, Editor from Manila Bulletin, called me to style for this with Madam Rxandy Capinpin, and of course, Hanna Pechon for Make up, and Jay Wee for the hair. Thanks Caloi for the opportunities!
Exuberance was released last Friday, 27 May, 2011, Manila Bulletin Lifestyle Fashion Section. Check out the final layouts, and some of the additional ones too:
1st layout in The Peak, Punta Fuego, their smaller version of the infinity pool, same location of Regine's wedding vows. Check out authentic fish-scale shoes from Gaupo of course, and it's 1 pair of size 7, I don't know if they're still producing this due to limited production only, and oh my first from Randy Ortiz's cowl neck, mustard dress! Thanks Myth!
The python print dress by Noel Crisostomo + Gaupo booties. Huge thanks to Ms. Ruby Gan again, and to Mr. Gilbert!
Just love big hair, its so couture already, as agreed with Jay Wee.
Stylist Job 101: Shooting under rough roads! Use panty liners at the bottom of the shoes for a damage-free return. Masking, electric, and cardboards give-in in these rocky roads.Change hair peg. Little braids on the tip. Cool that I have with me my bestbud Rombs Luzon to carry all the suit bags, and enormous boxes of shoes. Thanks Rombs!
Joel Escober's dreamy dress! Beyond Love!
Change location, same goes with the hair and make up.
