Mood dresser. My style usually depends on my mood. I’m currently into floral prints on classic pieces.
Clothes maker. I don’t shop that much these days because I just opened my own clothing line. I sort of make my own clothes now but when I’m at the mall, I can never resist a quick visit to Mango, Dorothy Perkins and/or Topshop.
Fave fashion designer. I have always adored YSL, Oscar de la Renta and Coco Chanel. Right now, I’m fascinated with Zac Posen, Elie Saab, Donna Karan, Vera Wang, Monique Lhuillier and Filipino designer and my kababayan Michael Cinco.
Never leave the house without a... watch.
Inspiration. Fashion magazines! I’m currently following Vogue Australia and Harper’s Bazaar UK. And of course, Chictopia! :D
Style icon. Dita Von Teese! She has the most amazing vintage dresses that are to die for. Among our local celebrities, I like Rima Ostwani and Maricar Reyes’ style. They look effortlessly elegant and sophisticated.
Influenced. My mom used to tell me that you are what you wear. My style is basically influenced by the things I like and love, the things that inspire me and of course whichever mood I’m in.
Color palette. I used to have a lot of LBDs. Now my closet is filled with floral-printed dresses/skirts/tops.
Never seen in... Animal fur.
The basic three. LBDs, black stilettos, and tulle skirts/dresses
Comeback trend. 1920’s fashion! I absolutely love Zac Posen’s 2009 Pre-fall Collection
Vintage owns. My mom gave me some of her vintage accessories. My lola gave me a diamond ring for my 16th birthday which she bought a long, long time ago and she recently gave me her purple ring which I’ve been begging for since I was a kid.
