Philippine Fashion Week S/S 2015 Day 2Hi Sugar Dolls!
It's a beautiful breezy day and I'm in the mood for some FASHyin SCOOP!
As you all know, Philippine Fashion Week SS2015 has recently
concluded and I've got some juicy style stories just for you sweethearts.
October 25, 2014 was DAY 2 and before heading to the show, I picked
up my dear friend, Merchandiser for Speedo Philippines, Liz Sarte.
After doing her makeup, we rushed to SMX Convention Center. It was
a late Saturday afternoon and so traffic was getting a bit heavier as we
took the Paranaque Service Road. While stuck in traffic, your Sugar Doll
thought of doing a quick style fix. I noticed that my nails were starting to
chip off and so I repainted them Black.
It's a big NO NO to sport cracked nail polish so it's good to have your
little nail polish handy especially when you attend events. If we can do
makeup on the run, then we can certainly do our pretty nails too!
Anyway, Liz and I arrived at 6:30 pm and saw the long queue of
FASHyownistas very eager to see the show, looking and feeling uber chic in their own ways.
It took a lil moment before we were able to get in and get to our seats.
And IT'S SHOW TIME!
The Show started with a kundiman to set the mood as EsAc's Jun Jun Cambe's collection came first.
Filipiniana was given a fresh twist and spice that is so undeniably edgy and tasteful. A modern take on the Baro't Saya was seen and each piece exuded class and beauty that is very Filipino.
Lyle Ibanez, on the other hand, showcased an urban collection filled with youthful yet sophisticated vibe. It's comfortable, stylish and very wearable. It's the kinda thing I could see myself wearing on a fine, lovely and relaxed day.
Fashion house EsAc closed their segment with Audie AE's floor-length red number with black embroidered layer on top to add that sophisticated feminine touch to it. Now that one's a winner. I just feel that this is something for more mature women though. Perhaps women in their late 40's and up would surely look fantastic in this dress.
Meanwhile, Master Storyteller Jerome Salaya Ang, wowed the crowd with his tale of THE GIRL IN THE WATER: THE SIREN'S LULLABYE. Using summery neon colors mixed with bold prints, the designer played with mesh and neoprene to produce funky and exciting pieces. Models looked like beautiful mythical creatures on the runway.
And who wouldn't love Jeffrey Rogador's mega cool and quirky take on streetwear? Inspired by our very own JEEPNEY and naming the streets of Manila (graffiti style), this ready-to-wear collection is a sure hit!
Have you ever imagined ready-to-wear Barong? How about Barong that looks young and causal?
Check out these pieces from Sidney Perez Sio's Collection.
We used to think that Barong is only for formal events. But Sidney's take on this traditional clothing proved us wrong as models walked in Barong jackets and dresses.
Now that's a way to close a show!

After the show, Liz introduced me to runway hottie, June Macasaet.
Geez! Isn't he just so cute? He's even cuter in person, promise! And he's also very warm and friendly. Well, most models actually are. Can I just say that I was holding myself from smiling too much? ahaha oh well...
Anyway, CONGRATS to all PhFW designers!
Let's keep celebrating FASHION and see you all again on the runways.
Kisses to my Sugar Dolls!
