I am texturally interested in this. It all began with Chanel and it is truly one iconic statement that I adore. Partnered with an oversized blazer, I like the feeling of comfort and power with what I wear. What do you think of this look? Full story here.

The award-winning COGITO POP brings its unique combination of style and smarts to the wrist which is of course both fashionable and functional. COGITO POP, the connected fashion watch, is part of the global wearable technology trend, intended to maximize the features of iPhone, iPad, or Android device and simplify your connected life. Designed in France and engineered in the United States, COGITO POP beautifully combines the power of a connected watch with the timeless appeal of a fashionable timepiece. It should be noted though that COGITO POP serves as an extension of the smartphone, not a duplication of it. Congratulations to my former classmate, Hans Fernandez, for bringing Cogito Pop in the Philippines!
Ray-Ban pioneered a revolutionary approach to eyewear that it champions today, and that is the use of sunglasses and lenses as a medium to express one’s vision, personality and freedom. Ray-Ban has always prided itself in using the finest materials in the construction of its eyewear, using metals and plastics beyond its time. Now, Ray-Ban continues on with the heritage of creating the best pieces in terms of quality and style; and with revolutionary materials beyond our time. Ray-Ban just unveiled a collection at 71 Gramercy, of eyewear that is lighter yet durable, without compromising its iconoclastic cool identity. Making use of modern technology, Ray-Ban is able to tap into the high-tech resource of prime lightweight steel, acetates, aluminum, titanium and other materials to bring lightweight, high quality Ray-Ban icons fit for today’s faster lifestyle.

As part of my gig as makeup artist for Shu Uemura’s events this quarter, I was assigned to contribute to the makeup of Randy Ortiz’ Silver Anniversary at Peninsula Manila. I was assigned to showcase Shu Uemura’s latest looks on the girls, and of course, the boys (I worked on Hideo Muraoka’s makeup, among others).
More photos backstage and of the show below.
Few weeks ago, Shu Uemura invited me to be part of the team of makeup artists who will work with the models and the different brands to be opened at the new Shang East Wing, a fashion hot spot by Shangri-la Malls.
I worked on 5 /30 models that walked in the fashion show which you can see below. My eyes were on Samuel & Kevin,a brand recognized and worn all over Asia and the Middle East.
Stylish, innovative and sophisticated, S&K clothes indeed appeal to a wide spectrum of people from teenagers to young adults. S&K products possess fashion, style and are easy to mix and match. Not only does S&K offer great fashion, it offers great value too. For what you pay, S&K’s range of jeans and casual wear are made from the finest fabrics and designed well w hich make them stand out from the other labels. Projecting a cool yet low profile image, the clothes are strikingly sophisticated and stylish.
I got the chance to know more about the brand and the items in a mall visit, and here are some photos!
I don’t know why these are called “Boyfriend Jeans”. Well, I don’t have any boyfriend (for years – and yes, I’m ok 😉 !) and I am just super liking how loose clothes make me comfortable in my inverted triangle body shape! I love wearing it with tees as well! 😉
