Lantern Parade 2011
I can’t believe we won! The garments made by CT students were really stunning.
Pleats Please! (UP Lantern Parade 2011)
UP Diliman Lanter Parade 2011
Tada! After roughly two weeks, we managed to make three dresses for the parade… Plus, we were also able to make wings that actually light up.. Whaddup.. That’s special thanks to Ivy and her uncles!
My block decided to make this one extra special since this will be the last time we’re going to participate in the event. We were all very happy with the outcome.
Our VS angels :-P

It’s me! Haha my friend Jamie took the photo.
And now with the angels haha borrowed my prof’s costume…. Thanks to Jamie for the photo!
Can you guess our inspiration for the wings?
Miss Kitty and Miss Alice
After the parade, we knew we needed to make it sulit… or in Kris Aquino’s words, get more from what we paid for. So, we had a ‘shoot’ on our way back to the college. It was very much like the shoot we had last year after the parade, only this time, we had 5 angels.
It was already like fantasy… only the cellphone brought you back to reality.
Them lost angels.
That’s it! Next time, we’ll be watching the other batches rule the acad oval.
By the way, our college won best lantern for the first time (I think)! Whadupp!! Congrats College of Home Economics! Woot!
Clothing Technology: BYZANTINE MOSAIC
One of the requirements needed for my History of Western Costume Class, is to make a mosaic of any Byzantine Costume. Here are some of the works of my classmates:
My classmates all did a great job and mine is like the work of a gradeschool student! Hahaha I decided to use Art Paper to have that Stained Glass Effect. But anyway here’s how I did the mosaic!
What I really loved about the Byzantine Empire was how the paid attention to the details of their clothes. How wonderfully embellished their clothes were! I can live during that Era! Heehee

Our first lesson for our CT 15 class (HISTORY OF WESTERN COSTUME) was the EGYPTIAN COSTUME. Ma’m Ish required us to do a contemporary or replica of the Egyptian Costumes /Accessories Presented to us. Here’s what my competitive block came up with!
I made a contemporary version of the Egyptian Corselet!
It even had Egyptian Decorations! Heeehee
OUTFIT POST: Stripe Top, SECRET PARIS | Bondage skirt, SECRET PARIS | Brown Leather Sandals, GIFTED
I have to say, My block did a great job with these Egyptian accessories!

CALLE 4: Release the Intensity Within
This here is a shot from CALLE 4 last October 19 at Katips Bar, QC. The designer and the model (being hot, as usual) strutting their stuff in the runway.
Lookie here, Pal’s first design! they were given a t-shirt to alter, and from that plain t-shirt came this creation. I have one word, FABULOUS! Teena did a great job modelling, for the first time, I was starstruck. These two make a great team! Of course Legit was there to support :)
So proud of my sisters! Teena the model, and Pal the Fashion Designer! ♥ :’)

Every fashion design student dreams of having her own fashion show someday. It is one of the best way to show off your talent and skills in the industry, to flaunt your aesthetic and to wow the audience with your masterpieces. As beginners in the field, we are very excited to have our fashion show even from the start of conceptualizing the event. Luckily, I have this organization, UP Circle of Entrepreneurs, which conducted a fashion show for it’s Black Shirt Project (black shirt merchandise). I grabbed the opportunity to tie up both parties, my org and my block. Both of us will benefit from the deal, the org will have a great show and less work, my block gets to have our class project and have a fashion show that we all love. Challenge accepted. Our class have to come up with design from t-shirt with the project’s design. We have to transform each shirt into high fashion pieces. I know we are all good but as the project head of the show, I was nervous that our designs will not coincide with each other. Being the head is a not so good idea but of course, it has more positive effect than not. The initial problems I, as a leader, encountered is the time to meet the group. Since we are diversely scheduled, it is so hard to find enough common time for all of us to meet. But there is always a solution to every problem. We perfectly coordinated with each other through a web-link system(which I wish not to explain here). Other problems concerning the class is TIME again for every individual to finish our designs since we still have a lot of requirements for CT and for our other academic subjects. A lot has come to our way. Bottomline, WE SURVIVED!
This are the shirts we experimented to transform into haute couture. Our designs should coincide with the design (or attitude) assigned to us-The Rule Breaker, The VIP, The Rich Kid.
Below are some of our transformations:
This is my model Irra. I transformed the shirt into a corsette-ish look. It is covered with lace all over at the back.
I gotta go, so imma continue this blog later.
love love love,
Who says rainbow can’t come down to your eyes? Well, my blockmate/groupmate/official make up artist/friend, Paloma Picart proved it is possible. She really has an artist’s hand which could perfectly transform anyone’s face into a masterpiece. Obviously, I’m a fan of hers. For us girls, it’s so difficult to trust your face to any make-u[ artist even the professional ones. You’ll never know how you’ll look like after the session. But this very promising make-up artist is tried and tested. Everybody in our class wants to experience her brush touch and lucky me, I’m always in the priority lane. For our high fashion make-up session, Paloma transformed my face with the very awesome rainbow eyeshadow. I chose the make-up peg from a magazine and the magic of her hands started. Here’s the result (don’t hesitate to contact me if you want to hire her):
We took the chance to have a mini photoshoot.
That’s me (left) with Paloma.
this is just one of the sessions I gladly share to my friends everytime they ask me how’s life in CT. And they will all like be envious because it’s so definite that I am enjoying here.
Love love love,
