RIP: louie mamengo
it was yesterday while having lunch that we were exchanging text messages with rajo laurel about pulling out some clothes for a shoot. then he said simply: "louie mamengo died." oh nooooo... we had read in facebook a couple weeks ago, someone called for prayers for louie. apparently he had lung cancer. we'll always remember louie with fondness. and we're pretty sure rajo will too because he apprenticed with louie when he was just starting out and before louie left the country in the late 90s to set up shop in LA. we would get bits of news about how he was doing there, but not so much in the last 10 years. may you rest in peace, louie. let's mamengo!
