Moreover, 1 lucky girl/guy (from among the ones who took part in this giveaway, meaning including those participants from other bloggers) will be given $100 gift card courtesy of PersunMall via random selection.

Winner/s will be announced on PersunMall Official Page and Facebook Page on July 19. PersunMall marketing team will contact winners by email, so be sure to check your email on the said date.

UPDATE:

Apparently we didn’t reach the minimum of 60 entries for this giveaway, so PersunMall is cancelling it. I’m sorry. 🙁

Project: Headshot

Months ago, Chad taught me how to use his film camera. I thought of putting my recent ‘learning’ to good use, so I decided to make this project. I used our Canon AE-1 camera and Solid Gold ISO 200 film in natural light. I don’t have much equipment with me except the camera and tripod. Someday, I’ll have lights and what not, you can bet on that.

Tiana

tiana4

Tiana, as you all know, modeled my first ever collection. I really love the contours of her face so I decided to photograph her again. Unfortunately, by the time I finished fixing Tiana up (I did her make-up as well), it began to rain. I got really scared we won’t be able to take single shot, but thank heavens our location had a roof. I’m really happy with how the photos came out.

Zel

Zel and I knew each other from Meg Magazine Face Search. She’s done a lot of commercials so you’ve probably seen her on TV. It was really hot when we shot these and we were in quite a hurry so I wasn’t able to fix my camera settings (let’s just pretend I know how to set my camera :P). I need to learn how to do that.

So that’s my first legit photography project. More photos to come, I hope. I’m constantly looking for fresh faces for this project, message me if you want to work together! 

Metamorphosis’ First Summer Collection Is Out!

Do you like 50s inspired clothes? prints? quirky outfits? I do!

I mentioned weeks ago that I began working on creating my own line of clothes and it’s here! Actually, it’s been live for more than a month now, I only found the time to share it here today. I have to improve my marketing skills, I know. HA! In the meantime, here is my first 8-piece collection, which I shot and styled myself using Chad’s Canon AE-1 film camera with my lovely model Tiana Cruz:

Audrey skirt 500

Hailey skirt 450

Raina skirt 500

Twiggy skirt 500

When I designed these clothes, I thought of Audrey Hepburn and Twiggy in the 60s. That’s why I named some of the pieces in the collection after them. The 50s and 60s are the two decades that broke fashion traditions, especially the latter. New and unconventional styles also emerged. Color was everywhere!

Metamorphosis is a very meaningful word to me. When I was a kid I relied on second-hand clothes from my cousins. My clothes were often old, ill-fitting and out-phased so I grew up with low self-esteem. But I used that as motivation to strive harder and to dream. My personal style changed. I now know what looks good on me (and on others too). I metamorphosed from a scrawny baduy girl to a lady who is now aware of fashion.

I like wearing clothes that exude happiness and love, which is why I chose wonderful prints and lively colors for my first collection. I hope you’ll love it as much as I do! You can view more photos on Facebook here, and I would really appreciate it if you’d like the page too. 🙂

Stepping Into the Light: May 2013 Work and Features

It’s been a while since I last blogged, if we exclude the giveaway posts. I don’t even consider them blog posts. I know you must be tired of me apologizing for the lack of posts, so I won’t (it doesn’t mean though that I’m unapologetic). I had lots of personal issues that needed immediate attention, and I’m not even done dealing with yet. I needed to get out of that situation, even for just a little while, that’s why I’ve come back. There’s nothing much happening in my life this month, but the previous one though was one heck of an emotional ride.

Chad went back to the USA, so we’re back to Skype dates. But before he left, the magazine jobs we did came out as well as some blogger features. I’m reserving the work we did for CLAVEL magazine for next week’s blog post though, as I still have to procure a copy.

Lydali Fashion+Travel Blogger Feature

feature1

In April, Lydali, a retail brand from San Francisco California, stumbled upon one of our travel videos and interviewed me for their blog. You can check out the full interview here. I talked about my country, the Philippines, and its wonderful places. I’m going to Corregidor Island this year and I’m looking for a travel buddy. If you wanna join me, email me and let’s talk. Hihi 🙂

MadhouseMNL May 2013 Film Issue

feature2

As you know, Chad and I were regular contributors for the online magazine, MadhouseMNL. MadhouseMNL is composed of (very) young individuals who share their passion for the arts through the online magazine. They released the film issue last month in which we shot our friend Marthe Olsen wearing Trunk Show Manila in legit film. Check out the full editorial here.

DDG Magazine Travel+Fashion Article

feature4

Here’s what I’m really proud of. This is a travel+fashion article that Chad and I produced for DDG Magazine‘s April-May issue. Chad wrote the travel part while I wrote the style tips. Chad is a really good writer, while I am not really confident about mine. I let Chad review what I wrote before we submitted it for publishing, and he liked it. I was so happy. 🙂 We shot 5 layouts in two hours for this issue, it was very exhausting but totally worth it. Grab a copy of DDG Magazine April-May issue guys! National Bookstore branches have it, I’m sure.

DDG Magazine Blogger Feature

feature3

And last but definitely not the least is our blogger feature for the same magazine. They know we’re bloggers as well so they featured us. Yay! Just seeing my photo placed side by side with the love of my life makes me happy. 🙂

So that’s what kept me busy the past months. ‘Will post more about our magazine work next week! 🙂
