I enjoyed working with Malou and her entourage . . . . I loved that she gave me and the ladies of her entourage a free hand in choosing the designs and fabrics for the gowns. It was a pleasure meeting everyone, Malou! I’m looking forward to making a gown for you soon.
Here are some snapshots of the clothes that I made for an 11-11-11 wedding. I designed for the bride, moms of groom and bride, bridesmaids, secondary sponsors, flower girls and a couple of the female godparents. Thanks so much to The 12Masters Photography for letting me upload their photos here! More shots from the event can be found on their Facebook page.
I spent 11-11-11 at a wedding of a dear cousin not just as a guest but also as her designer for her bridal and entourage gowns. I was actually not supposed to be at the wedding because my due date for kid 2 was supposed to be yesterday, but the baby decided to come out early! Anyway, I’d like to share with you guys a teaser from Roy and Cathy’s photographer, Marvin of The 12Masters Photography.
I can’t wait to see the rest of the photos from The 12Masters Photography! I love their work!
Wedding in a castle. In Switzerland. Ivory and black maid of honor gown. I love it! Looking forward to making your next gown, Karla!
Roy and Cathy rented Ever Gotesco’s cinema for their funky Old Hollywood pre-nup shoot. I loved, loved, loved the concept and the venue! Cathy wore a couple of my pieces during their shoot and I’d like to share some of the photos with you guys.
Rush, rush, rushing to finish the bridal and entourage gowns for an 11-11-11 wedding, which also turns out to be my due date! Aaargh, the pressure. Here’s a dress for one of the members of the entourage . . . .
Our inspiration is 1950s fashion meets rock ‘n roll. Â Colors for the entourage are black, white, gray and silver . . . . I love it! Sometimes the absence of color can make things more elegant, don’t you think?
Congratulations and best wishes, Sarah and Jet! Thanks so much for getting me to make the gowns for your entourage.
I absolutely loved this gown on Karla! She wore this to a wedding and she got lots of rave reviews — she tagged me in the photosÂ she posted on Facebook and people just kept on complimenting her and the gown even days after she uploaded the photos.
I can’t wait to make your next gown, Karla! I’m thinking black and white, elegant and red carpet worthy, suitable for the maid of honor in a wedding in Europe. If I remember correctly, it will be in a castle, right? Exciting!
When Sherwin and Denise asked me to make their entourage gowns, the mission order was to keep it simple and to follow the pink and gray theme.
The bride(zilla)* was actually my blockmate, carpool mate, part of my barkada back in college, and ninang of my daughter. It was fun (and stressful)** working with her and her entourage!
When Lali & Abet asked me to make their outfits for their wedding, I immediately said yes even if it coincided with another wedding that I was working on. Â Why? Not only are they good friends, but because it’s a themed wedding! They wanted a Beatles themed wedding so the groom got to wear a Sgt. Pepper inspired outfit while the bride wore a hippie-ish wedding gown. Â And of course the guests were asked to come as hippies!
This photo came with the invite. Abet, being the tech savvy artist that he is, made this picture of his family walking along Abbey Road. The bride and groom’s outfits closely resemble what they actually wore during the wedding.
Don’t you just love unconventional weddings? Â I’ve had the opportunity to make a red wedding gown, I’m currently making outfits for both groom and bride for a Beatles-themed wedding and just a couple of months back, I made the entourage dresses for Joe & Chok. Â They chose midnight blue as the color for the gowns and I was so happy to make it for them because it’s not usual for a Pinoy couple to choose a dark (almost black) color for their bridal entourage. Â The ninangs and moms wore gowns in different shades of blue which I think worked really well with the midnight blue gowns of the rest of the entourage.
Aside from working with such an awesome couple and the ladies from their entourage, the best part of the whole project was when I got a hug from one of the ninangs after she saw how she looked like in her gown. Â :)
Here are some of the pictures I got (stole) from the couple’s Facebook account. Â Thanks, Joe & Chok!
