Yesterday I got an email from a Styling assistant from a popular Fashion magazine (that I will reveal soon) here in the Philippines, asking me if I was up to making a look for an editorial. Naturally I said yes since I needed more content to build a kick-ass portfolio to show potential schools so that I can finally pursue my MBA. The editorial will be based on the Fall/Winter 2015-2016 trends of Patchwork and Nomadic upholstery. The catch: the shoot will be on August 7, so I have to submit the look on August 6; that’s 6 days from now!
Once I got over the initial shock, I had a million things going through my head of all the elements I wanted to incorporate into my look. Good thing ___________ sent me some pegs from the actual Fall/Winter shows and I got to say, WOW. I especially loved Dsquared’s Eskimo inspired collection.
I was talking with Ralf about what to do with my look and we came up with the bright idea of having it Ewok and Eskimo inspired. So after scouring the mall for fabric, I gathered up my options and picked the ones that I would
most likely be working with for this project. I got some really nice Missoni prints from Fanbi that I will definitely be using among other treasures. Getting excited over this because it’s something that’s totally different from the Origin of Love and frankly, I was getting tiresome of the neutrals.
That’s it for now! Stay tuned for the next update on this project. 🙂
Also, going to Preview Magazine’s launch party tonight! It’s for their August issue which I’m actually in (kind of)!!! I’ve been waiting for this to come out since May! I’ll definitely post the article once I get my hands on a copy.
