First, I just want really to thank Style Weekend's EIC Ms Liza Ilarde for the confidence, credence she put into my styling aesthetics.  This is my 2nd cover with them and its an exquisite honor doing the cover and spread with them.

The eco-friendly banaca wraps are very versatile, bright, and stylish.  You can form, fold, and tweak to what ever design or form of clothing you want.  I can be worn as stylish top, elaborate folds can lead to very couture to very RTW clothing pieces.
There is visors, and small wraps where you can make as neckpiece, fascinator, or accessory as belt, bracelet to hairpiece, talking about transformation!

Rxandy X Enrique: Conceptual Styling

I know I've been a mood or story board freak, most of the fashion people I've worked with they are familiar how I work and how crucial pegs to me.  Doing pegs, moodboard or storyboard  can sometimes can be very challenging and exhausting.  You have some creative thoughts of doing crazy things and just  want to make an art.  Mood or story boards, pegs usually is a guide to have a cohesive, and directional look and story of an editorial but sometimes I felt I'm bounded, limited, restricted by my freedom to do different concept and especially in terms of creative styling is concerned.   You want to produce new, original, and creative masterpiece but hey isn't everything done already? 

I know by now that I'm more of a commercial approach, but I want to experiment conceptual, crazy ideas as well.  It's fun, free flowing and sometimes very exhilarating!   Check out our final layouts in collaboration with conceptual photographer Rxandy Capinpin and awesome model Enrique Noir.
