it was a star-studded event at tonight's fashion show launch of randy ortiz's limited-edition collection for kashieca called kashieca luxe. it was held at greenbelt 5's second-floor gallery. at the front row, we spotted gretchen barretto and richard gomez; right behind them was mother lily and girlie rodis. and everywhere else, we spotted georgina wilson, iya villania, carla abellana, belle daza, and assorted society-page regulars. well, that's a given at any ben chan event!
randy's collection was inspired by the legendary designer madame grès, who is famous for her fluid fabrics cut on the bias, elegant draping often made from one continuous piece of cloth, and grecian-goddess gowns—elements which were evident in this collection. randy said he produced only 23 designs, but based on the show it seemed like hundreds! that's because each piece was made in 2-6 colors. the collection is now available at all kashieca stores. get to know some of the "goddesses"!
