Vernon and I made something new for the Art to Wear (A2W) line! When Karrots of Live, Love, Lolz podcast requested for a camo skirt, instead of buying camo fabric, Vernon and I decided to make our own print.
A couple of years ago, Talia designed a dress which I originally planned on making as a surprise for her. Unfortunately, that was during the Christmas season and I was loaded with orders so I forgot all about it. I know, I know, bad mommy. But it’s definitely not too late! Thanks to Wendy of Child’s Own, Talia’s drawing came to life!
Cute, comfy and laid back. Usually perfect for weekends but can also be worn at the office for those who do not have strict dress codes (like in my office!). Wear alone or with a belt, with flats or wedges!
Thanks so much to stylist KC Leyco for including my dress in her editorial for the October – November 2011 issue of BusinessWorld High Life Magazine!
From my Art to Wear Collection
Remix Report isÂ A NEWStertainment show hitting the metro TODAY, Sunday 3:20PM at GMA News TV (former QTV channel 11).Â Produced by Salt Lab Creative and Bigtop Entertainment Inc., the show is hosted byÂ Joaqui Tupas and Abby Asistio with guest field reportersÂ Nicole & Bea of General Luna and Ian Tayao of WilaBaliw, who’llÂ cover news events through musical performances.
The show will air its premiere telecast TODAY 3:20PM – 3:50PM and I had the privilege of dressing up the female host, Abby, for their pilot episode. Here are some screenshots from the pilot.
Andrea Torres was one of Pia Guanio’s substitutes for 24 Oras’ Chika Minute and I must say that Andrea did a great job. Yes, not just because she was wearing one of my dresses in one of the episodes haha.
Andrea wore this dress a couple of days from one of my past collections. Thanks, Andrea!
Here’s one of my clients wearing my best seller from last year’s Art to Wear collection. Looking great, Pazette!
I was pleasantly suprised to hear that one of my favorite models, Ms. Andrea Torres, wore three of my dresses to her GMA Lenten Special “Maestra” which aired last Black Saturday! Thank God for the internet — I was able to view the show online last night and was able to get some screenshots.
Made this vermilion ruched dress for Ms. Rhian Ramos and she looks gorgeous! I was told that it looked even more awesome in person. Can’t wait to see her wear the other dresses I made for her.
Singer/model Maffy Soler has been making the rounds at TV5 to promote the network’s latest teleserye called Nagbabagang Bulaklak. She sang the theme song of the show along with Marvin Ong — great job, guys! Here’s Maffy wearing one of my designs from my Satin et Lacet collection at her Lucky Numbers guesting.
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!
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!
We’re having too much fun with our A2W orders . . . . we’ve asked Vernon to airbrush just about anything we can get our hands on, from tank tops, to shirts and now this skirt. Â I used denim for this asymmetrical skirt, the same fabric we used for the original A2W dresses.
I’m currently thinking of a design for another piece under this collection. Â Will post pics soon!
Currently working with Miko on these one shoulder numbers . . .
When stylist KC Leyco asked me if she could use some of my dresses for her client, Ms. Tuesday Vargas, I said yes right away because it’s not everyday that I’d get the chance to see my designs on TV worn by Â one of the nominees for Star Studio’s Celebrity Style Awards 2010 as Most Stylist Comedienne . . . and after seeing her past outfits for ABC 5‘s Talentadong Pinoy, I’d have to agree with the nomination! Â I loved how my dresses looked on her!
Here are pics of Tuesday wearing my dresses (thank you KC and Dyna for emailing me some of the photos).
Worked on this design sometime last year with accessories designer (and my SIL) Miko Olfindo and we’ve been getting good reviews about it until now. Â The beadwork is detachable so you can wear the dress by itself or with other accessories and you can also wear the beadwork as a necklace or bracelet since they’re all detachable. I love getting a lot of mileage from my pieces!
I’m so happy to be getting positive feedback on the new collections, especially on Art to Wear (which I call A2W for short) and people have been asking who’s the artist responsible for the great prints.
Vernon Perez, local artist extraordinaire, does not just specialize in airbrushed art. Â He also creates installation pieces, accessories and is also a DJ! Â Below are some of my favorite pieces by Vernon:
For those of you who’ve been to our house, we have several metal artwork on both sides of the walls. Â This one is called LIFE and it’s actually the same pattern on one of the dresses from our A2W collection.
