metrowear 2

tonight's metrowear show was not as well-attended as the first one. we won't speculate as to why that was, but a lot of the sosi people we spotted on the front row last wednesday were glaringly absent. let's just say we had a problem getting a front seat last week. tonight, we were easily given one. (of course we want to sit in front! doesn't everybody?? pa-importante!) tonight's designers: lulu tan gan (known as the queen of knits), katrina goulbourn (known as the daughter of jeanne goulbourn), and jun escario (known as that designer from cebu). the hightlights...
LULU TAN GAN: a black-and-white collection of knit separates, which are easy to mix and match with the rest of your wardrobe. perfect for travel because they don't wrinkle, can go from day to night with a change of accessories, are easy to layer, and are super comfortable to wear on the plane (we know—we have a gray cardigan by lulu tan gan that we love to wear on the plane. it's been everywhere and is beginning to look a little old and ratty, we realize it's time to give it up. we can shop right here...). KATRINA GOULBOURN: katrina's strength is the backing of silk cocoon, the brand her mother started, known for its innovative use of philippine silk. just look at the saturated colors the fabrics can hold. there are two schools of thought here, though: some people thought that with colors as bright as these, the silhouettes and details should have been toned down and more restrained. on the other hand, others thought that the gorgeous colors simply enhanced the ultra-feminine silhouettes and details. what do you think? JUN ESCARIO: the highlight of jun’s collection were his gowns of jewel-toned chiffons. but what made them stand out was not the front, but the back. what a pleasant surprise to see bejeweled backs as the model pirouetted at the end of the runway. this way, you look good coming and going.
plain ol' slipdress in the front with tiny brooches for added sparkle...
an art deco-ish attachment in the back.
a cascade of ruffles down the front (bagay pang flamenco)...
a big bejeweled CD, este, disk in the back.
but the most applauded piece was this gown (as you can see from the people on the front row, clapping with glee…). bakit kaya??

dear fashpack, anonymous (of Saturday, October 21, 2006 10:27:31 AM) is an idiot. Please don't mind her. She hasn't been taking her brain vitamins, therefore the deficiency. Please, keep up the great work.
