Yesterday , before the FaDal fashion show at Republiq , Mike and I had an opportunity to visit a very interesting person- Mariko Jacinto. Months ago, Brian Tenorio invited us to a networking/ event at Bed in Malate and he introduced us to  Mariko. True to form we made connections with people esp. to her. She messaged us on facebook  a day after asking us to design something for her for the FaDAL show because she told us that she must wear something like "us" .. Its purely overwhelming... To have an artist , a fashion designer , socialite as your client. She's also friends w/ BB. Hehe

And so we fitted the pieces yesterday 3 hours prior the show. We had so much fun inside her house. it was a museum inside with her paintings everywhere, expensive knick knacks on her sala, and chandeliers even inside her powder room. She showed to us her immense collection of clothes - Issey Miyake , Puey Quinones , Anne Demeulemeester and more. So it was a pressure for me and Mike to make something for her as she is aware of what style and fashion is. We made a shredded top, a deconstructed vest and a chiffon harem pants for her....

She's super cool! Thank God she loved the clothes. I mean , c'mon ! usually you would think that someone like her would  wear a purple jersey dress for an event but she opted to play genderless and grungy and grey.. She'll be leaving in April for Italy to study art  i guess?  and we do hope to meet her soon.
