It was for NAW (National Architecture Week) 2013 when I first created this dress, inspired from the coconut palace. It is an interschool competition in UST and fashion design is one of the events/competition. I’m glad that I was one of the chosen ones to be part of the fashion show. 

This is my sketch.

The poster for the event.

This is me with Caren Viniegra (My model from College of Fine Arts and Design)

—————————————————————————

Then a month later after the MODA event, my dress was asked to be used for another competition. It is the UAP’s Mr. and Ms. NAW, and Nicole Lastimosa from UST won as the MS. NAW! Could you believe that my dress was part of it. I wasn’t there to witness her winning the crown, but at least my dress was with her. :”>

This is Nicole wearing my dress and Mr. UAPSA-UST for NAW :)

————————————————————————

Then another opportunity came up when UAP requested to display UAPSA-UST’s NAW dresses to UAP’s CONEX/NATCON 2014 in MOA last April 10-12, my dress was displayed along with the other NAW dresses that are still intact and in good condition from the NAW 2013 fashion show. :)

The dresses; mine is in front of the letter “D”.

Just before I got the chance to have a photograph with my work, there are individuals who take photos with my work. Hihi :”> Thanks Guys.

So, YEHEY! This is me with my work. Next time, I should be the one wearing this already. LOL

Thank you UAPSA-UST for the opportunities, and thank you for all the wonderful experience. I am not the one who won in MODA’s fashion show, yet I was given the chance to still be part of other complimentary shows and exhibits. My frustration as an architect turned fashion designer was filled up by the chances given to me by UAPSA. And for me, this is already a dream come true. All hard works paid off! more powers to all UAPSA out there, most especially to our very own UAPSA-UST. :) I LOVE YOU!

Hello From Guam!

———————————————-

Since vacation will last longer than before, I started a #50DaysOfSummer Project and I started Day 1 here in Guam. It looks a lot like the Philippines, and is somehow a mash-up of California’s Sun, Mexico’s Architecture, with more of Asian people than Americans. (I see a lot of Asians here, though it is an American state). 

So hi there! I’ll be blogging more about Guam soon.

HAPPY SUMMER EVERYONE! :)

University Belt District Monorail System (Final Plate)

——————————————————————————————-

I might agree with you when you say that my design plate is not one of the most “prettiest”, it might be just one of those “simplest” and “usual” stations you’ve seen. Yes, it may not be but it is FEASIBLE and POSSIBLE. How could you possibly fit vast and huge stations along the streets of Manila? 

I studied the areas, the local train stations and houses; these are the reasons why I came up to be simple. Why NEO CLASSICAL + MINIMALIST? First, Neo-classical is one of the pioneer and most abundant (probably) type of architecture that holds most of our history, especially in Sampaloc, Manila. In order to bring the “Filipino” and the sense of belonging, we need to embrace our identity and love it. I added up the Minimalist concept, small yet useful. Everything you need is all here in a 25x8 meters station. It caters the needs of its user, the people of Manila needs more structure that holds Filipino Identity. We don’t want to be a copy cat of New York, Singapore, and other first class cities. We want to have our own identity, and we should all work out to achieve this.
