Some of you guys know that my husband Miguel is my resident photographer, web designer, videographer and editor. How lucky can a girl in my position get, right? I’m proud to share with you this video that was part of the Collaburature group show at The Collective last December 16, 2010.
He morphed his still photos to come up with this video and my designs can be seen from 3:05 until 4:21. Enjoy the video!
It’s amazing how something gross (sorry, I don’t really like worms) can make something so beautiful. I remember a visit to a silk factory in China years ago and it was great seeing how silk was made. Went through my old photos of the tour so that I could share some with you guys, along with some info coming from this website.
The silkworms are fed mulberry leaves. (more…)
My friends and family know that I hate being in front of the camera. I hate posing, most especially acting. But when Johnoy Danao asked me and the hubby to be part of his new music video, Ikaw at Ako, I said yes because I’m a big fan. I only had one request, and that was no acting allowed. Or else, we might never finish the shoot hahaha!
The video was shot on my birthday and I’m posting it here so that you guys can have a glimpse of what happens at my home studio. Perfect day to launch this, today being Valentine’s Day.
Thanks again, Johnoy!
Prom season is upon us again! I don’t remember much about my own prom . . . . but I do remember I wanted to dress up too much like a grownup. I felt super cool back then but now I cringe at the thought of my beauty queen gown with matching beauty queen hair.
So when a client showed me her peg for her own prom, I tried to come up with something that will meet her expectations but still have a tinge of youthfulness. Not only was my client so happy with her gown, but also her mom AND dad! That’s no easy feat, I tell you. I’ve had countless mother and daughter arguments in my studio so I’m happy that this particular fitting was a success.
So here’s what we came up with for a Paris-themed prom. The best part of the dress for me (and the client’s mom) is the belt with rosettes.
Enjoy the prom, Maxinne! And happy V-day to you guys!
Because it’s my birthday tomorrow, I’m giving you guys 20% off on all orders placed between February 3 until the 19th. Send me a message if you’re interested!
I’m looking forward to some fun in the sun this coming weekend to celebrate my birthday . . . I’m going to a place where there is no signal so if I don’t answer your calls/text or emails, I’ll get back to you as soon as get back to Manila on Sunday night.
In the meantime, here’s another summer inspired outfit I made for my kids line, modeled by Natalia.
