SW: Alden Richards Cover Story

 I just love working with recurring model/celebrity because you got to make another different look/style for them, and you got to compare your work if it evolve, improve or progress over a period of time.  

This time its Alden Richards, when Managing Editor Ms Maris texted me if I can style Alden, I totally freaked one... 1. He's a charmer 2. Got to re-style different look and 3. Another cover!  I couldn't thank more the SW Team! 

 Check out the final and some of the unpublished photos in the shoot.

Before the actual shoot or story submission, I consider previous looks, published style, and trends that has been done especially for a specific celebrity-cover.  In this case, Alden has graced a cover of Garage with sporty, color-block scheme and Mega Man released a summer campaign of FHM in their editorial.  Thus, in story board creation, I took the consideration of what has been done and explore the Menswear Trends and mix them up!

Played the florals and athletics, why not both? Right?  Check out below and let me know what you think of the looks.

One my fave, and he was actually wearing gold chain bracelets.
Cool and Cute!

And of course, I won't slip the couple shot! Hehehe

Until next, its EPIC, promise!

AD: Young in Prints

My First editorial for Asian Dragon Magazine, and so excited for the collaboration!  The concept is young achievers in Print on Print, with a Pop Art Graffiti.  Check out the final layouts released for Jan-Feb Issue:

From florals, to animal to ethnic, to graphic prints!

Cool combo: floral and pop art to Aztec!

Considering the layouts and the graphic background, opted to style some layouts with prints on prints and some just 1 solid color and print yet still feels summery!

Cool Twin bros!

Star Studio X Meg Imperial X Coleen Garcia

It's all summer, and yes, I'm so inspired and loved to finally get back in writing.  1 of the 4 shoots I had this summer season is with swimwear-summer editorial.   1st hit, its Star Studio Feb March Issue ft. Meg Imperial and Coleen Garcia.

Check out some of the final layouts! One word to describe it, its HOT!

Meg Imperial
 One of the hardest probably to style is the little clothing, the swimwear to monokinis to bikinis.  Why? Pieces should be picked to sexy yet with taste and in theme with the concept.
Accessories by HeyJow.  Thanks Joanna for the costumed made accessories.

Coleen Garcia

The shoot inspiration is taken the Jlo's Waiting for Tonight MV where she dances in sexy little clothing with green laser light at the back!

Uber thanks to the styling team who innovates some clothing and styling here! 

Kudos Klaudeen, Pat, and Karen!

Trivia: To Hide the Aztec Neon Print in the bikini bra from Speedo, we placed studded bracelet in between the mid bra! Buala! 

Special thanks to Ms Grace Libero, Speedo, Soak, Jelly Bean, and Koi.
