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.

Okay ... Im officially in love with Willar Mateo (Salad day)! ... not romantically , of course. He is a good friend and a very very promising young designer. Yesterday , if my poise and gracefulness dint get in the way , i would have screamed and cried and  jumped all at the same time upon seeing the dress he made for me! we met in the mall..

The dress was placed in a big white box with those cute tiny  stickers on the edges. We all hear people saying "kawaii" and "cute" almost everytime but they will not know what real cuteness means until they meet Willar! He is just full of colors , unadulterated youth and pure whim plus 2% darkness. He is a true artist, indeed!

check his blog... and you'll definitely  reconnect with your colorful childhood.


and i will wear this tonight for the FaDAL event. .. oh well. got to pack things first!

No Im not gonna rant about summer's arrival .. and no, I dint wear this purple pants just to commence this change of season. Actually I was just in the mood for some texture blocking. The pants have this taupe suede patch on the center which I reckon my grandpa might have worn for his daily Sunday walk. Interesting .. Same with my boots which has a mixture of leather + suede... 

I had a haircut and im back with the same old do. Im running out of ideas. So i over piled it with hair wax in hope that it'll be in a different shape but... it became damp and heavy .... fail!

I went out to get the remaining stocks of Paradigm Shift pieces at Nicole's pad. After which, I met up with my designer friend Willar Mateo to get my bespoke couture top. I wish i could take photos of it but i'd rather do it tomorrow. I must rest now coz tomorrow is the big day for me and Mike along with the new FaDAL members. Hope to see you all there at Republiq in Resorts World ...
