For the chic and conservative lady, Xernan Orticio’s collection is her best bet for clean and crisp power dressing. “The repertoire features tailored evening dresses in conservative yet sexy silhouettes in relaxed nude and nougat off-white hues, accentuated with gold embellishments and crystals, and layered with unstructured jackets and vests.”
Although her pieces are not for the faint of heart, one can definitely appreciate the mastery of her craft and her attention to detail. Futuristic in theme, Happy Andrada’s clothes employ indigenous fabrics such as piña, piña silk and abaca silk for three-dimensional designs.
Egypt meets sci-fi wonder with Kenneth Chua’s figure-hugging collection. “With the added twist of python leather accessories and metal fixtures, the result is a collection that celebrates today’s forward-thinking females.” We also love his black-painted Legos as accessories—ingenious!
Luxurious, draped fabrics seemed to be Emi Alexander-Englis’s story for this season, which meant for easy, comfy pieces that can even make for loungewear. “Spandex acetate, two-way stretch satin and power knits in ink-like hues of gray, black, and blue create poetic imitations of the ink stains on fabric.”
