Good day, so excited to share with you my story on the Phil Fashion Week Holiday 2014 and this time its a Trend Report. Read on.
1. SKY-HIGH SLITS
This Holiday season it seems like the only way to go is higher! Designers including Albert, Richie, Xernan, and Vania amped up their pieces with a high slits - from RTW dresses to long gowns. Showing more skin is definitely irresistible now.
2. TRUE ROYALS
There is a sense of royalty, romanticism, and sophistication incorporated in the designs that featured the 3 B's - Baroque, brocade and beadwork. White Chris showed the mark of true artisan with his all-white ensemble. Cherry commanded attention to his collection with brocades. Meanwhile Eric played with tulle and embroidery for a 3D effect and Jaz made use of full embellishments.

3. BLACK IS BACK
Black dominated the runway - from start to finish, most pieces were in black! But to add character to their collections, designers including Jerome, Philipp, Dave and Anthony played with silhouette, cuts and forms in a clever, fun, and modern executions.

4. WRAP ME UP
Creative uses of wraps, ties, and belts were just a few of the styling techniques featured on the runway. Vania finished some of her looks with a chic bows, Xernan delicately cinched his wrap around the waist for an edgier look, while Veejay used a belt to create a belt knot, and Anthony gave the wrap top an Oriental feel.
