I’m going to have a hard time parting with this multiway wrap skirt/dress. I’m so in love with the print and the colors! Here are a couple of ways the wrap can be worn.
One of my recent best sellers are dresses or gowns with vertical color blocking. Why? Because it’s super slimming! Not only will the vertical lines elongate your body, but the darker color at the sides also gives you the illusion of a tinier waist.
Abi has been one of my clients for three years already. Every year, she’d ask me to make a gown for her event and she’d end up taking home the best dressed award! Last October was the third time for her to win, and again, she was wearing a gown that I made for her.
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?
Who says you have to wear tent-like dresses when pregnant? I say embrace your curves NOW…..while you still can, because you’ll have the chance to wear all the loose fitting clothes that you want after you give birth! At more than seven months pregnant, I’m proud to say that I’ve only purchased the following maternity items: belly band (so I can wear my regular jeans and skirts), one pair of black leggings and a maternity belt (to help support my huge and heavy belly). I’ve gotten away with wearing most of my regular clothes, especially maxi dresses….I’ll try to post pics soon in another post.
I’ve known Nina since my styling days and I was so happy to hear that she’s also pregnant! Here she is wearing one of my dresses at a recent event. This dress was definitely not made for a pregnant woman but I loved how it looked on her. I also loved the comment of her hubby Mike….he said, “My wife is still pretty sexy maski 5 months preggy! Wootwoot!” I definitely agree, Mike!
Amia (I absolutely love her name) is usually more comfortable in neutrals but when her first color of choice (midnight blue) was not available in the fabric that we wanted, I was able to convince her to try out my favorite shade of teal instead. Good thing she agreed to experiment with color because she looked great!
Who exactly is Andrea Torres? Aside from being one of the recently signed talents under GMA 7, she’s also one of my favorite models for my line. She’s fun,Â professional, talented and of course, very beautiful!
I was pleasantly surprised to hear earlier that I was mentioned in the Inquirer article featuring Andrea. Click on the link to view the article, or buy today’s issue and look for the article under the Entertainment section. I’m also posting a screenshot of the online article here (click on the photo for a larger version).
The article reminded me of our video shoot we had back in 2009 (Playing Dress-Up). Let’s shoot again soon, Andrea! And thanks for the mention!
Aimee is one of my most loyal clients (and a cousin as well) — here are a few photos of her wearing dresses that I made for her.
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!
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 been a mad rush to get everything in order, from client fittings to measurements for 2011 weddings. At only four days before Christmas, I only have a few more fittings to go then I can finally relax and enjoy the holidays!
Just wanted to share with you guys a few photos of my clients wearing my dresses this holiday season. Â To my other clients who have yet to give me pics, please do email/tag me in your beautiful photos so that I can also include them in my website.

Marie wanted a Venetian-inspired Â ball gown for her debut and here’s what we came up with. Â I wanted to make it a little bit more modern with a bit of a rock and roll vibe and based on the feedback that I got, I think it worked! Â With 10 yards of tulle AND a removable petticoat, I applaud Marie for being able to wear this heavy gown without complaining. Â Haha!
