Watson's Living Beautifully Campaign

Photobucket
with Ellie (Watson's) and Jenny Yrasuegui of ARC




Photobucket
look at the master list! Chuvaness will shop too!



It is universal that everyone wants to be beautiful. Everyone needs to feel good from within. Thats why when Jenny Yrasuegui invited us for the Watson's Living Beautifully Campaign , I instanly agreed to participate. Watsons gave the three of us a TOTAL of 10K Gcs for the shopping mission. Along with my good friends, Mike Magallanes and Anton Belardo we came with the HAPPY KIT. Our goal was to provide one another a personalized happy kit that will remind us to be happy and beautiful amidst the crazy stress and lifestyle that we are in. I was tasked to create a HAPPY KIT for Anton Belardo.

why a happy kit?

Living Beautifully is synonymous to living happily since true happiness can greatly reveal the inner beauty in you. Being bloggers, we realize the vitality of living beautifully. We surround ourselves with all the pretty stuff- it could be a fashion show, an event, or just meeting with interesting people and sometimes we neglect the real essence of that. Albeit our wishes to maintain a very wholesome and healthy lifestyle , things can become awfully rough and unpredictable. Think: cigarette, alcohol and STRESS!

Anton is a stylist and an accessory designer. He also coordinates events occasionally. Obviously, he has a lot on his plate. A true chameleon, in terms of job and personality, Anton is a master in transformation. So i provided him with comsetics and products he can use to sustain his very unpredictable mood. In addition, I chose products that could help him relax.
This was a golden opportunity for us to celebrate beauty and a better way to do that is through SHOPPING. Just when you thought that there's nothing FREE in this world anymore, Watson's saved our kikay budget. haha.




FREEBIES!

Photobucket
Krista! thank you! haha



Last Sunday , we went to Powerplant Mall to unveil our new collection and have it displayed on the store - Graxie. Special Thanks to Reian Mata for allowing us to be included in her shop .
Ive always been curious on how the mannequins in the display windows are bein dressed and now I know and its not for the faint hearted. Its like dressing up yer skinny Barbie but only its twice yer weight and its tad taller than you actually are. We kinda struggled on how to style the mannequins since its our first time and if youre gonna look around the whole place, the mannequins wearing Paradigmshift looked different from the rest. Other shops carry floral maxi dresses, studded blazers and the like and it dawned on me whether our clothing line can be palpated in the sea of beautiful clothes in Archaeology. Oh well, all we need is good vibes and positivity! hehe .

Friends also dropped by to show support albeit the busy schedules. Blogger Krista of Sentimental Style also showed her love and bought her first Paradigm Shift tee! yey! and she's our first customer for the day!

That's why theres TEN in the word POTENTIAL.

That night was just a groundbreaking preview of their exquisite and superlative craftmanship for there will be an exciting competiton among the TEN chosen designers to watch next year.

Im only gonna say a lil something something on the designs and designers which roused my interest.

I really adore Stacey Rodriguez's street-devil-may-care collection. The stunning body con dress with pink cape was one of her best pieces that night. The volcanic tye dye treatment of her clothes was ostentatiously superb. It really spoke a lot about the fun designer herself.

Although the theme spoke about crystals, Nixon Marquez offered a macabre yet solid perspective hence, the peculiar exaggeration of collars, drapes and lineament. The crystal theme was infused in his own way as evidenced by the geometric appliques and the models' iridiscent maquillage. I can see a lot of big things ahead this avant garde power dresser. In fact we are experiencing a lot of good stuff from him already.

Jona Ballaran is also another fave of mine because she used flowy fabrics, making her evening dresses opulent and dramatic in a non-obtuse manner. The asymmetrical overlaying of rich yet thin fabric on the dresses were surprisinglyt effective as it created a palpable amount of energy and life albeit the monochromaticity of the collection.

Enrico Carado's eccentric armored dresses were tasteful and sensibly crafted. Its as if the clothes were made to provide a seemingly soft avant garde and modern approach. The treatment, the construction, the palette all in all amalgamated into something dreamy, glacial but not delusional.

Seriously, Camille Co surprised me! I just heard from friends that she makes RTW streetwear apparels so i was honestly shocked when i saw her hi end , heavily intricate couture designs. There is a grand story behind the clothes and i can feel the unadulterated emotions transferred on the creations



who's your bet? whose work do you covet?

lets all hope for the best!
