Philippine Fashion Week S/S '13 | My top picks

As you may have noticed, I initially started this series of PhFW posts with one blog entry per designer. I realized that it's time consuming and since I have a lot on my plate and as much as I want to continue, I couldn't keep up with it. I have a lot of pending posts (IDW posts will be up very soon!) to finish so now, I'll share with you my other favorite collections aside from those I had blogged about in my previous posts.

Eric Delos Santos

Glamorous and feminine. Yes, diamonds are a girl's best friend but not all that glitters are jewelries. It can be your clothing too! Eric Delos Santos really knows how to make women shine their brightest through his creations. Also, he's from Iloilo like me so yay!

His muse Marina Benipayo opens the show.

Sheer and shine.

This flowy number would really make you feel very feminine.

...and she closes it as well. She was definitely a head turner during the show.

Jerome Salaya Ang

A contrast of elements. Jerome Salaya Ang played with the toughness and girlyness of his pieces which worked really well together.

I'm a sucker for tiny details like this quilted leather top!

John Paras

Clean and fresh. I haven't seen an all-white collection in a long time. John Paras made it look easy to pull off the color white! The play in textures made the color even more interesting while bits of gold and sparkle added more oomph to the whole collection.

These pieces are fit for an angel haha! :)

June Pugat

Dreamy and ethereal. Lately, I've been obsessed with watercolor details. I like how the different colors blended together and create a hazy dreamy-like effect. June Pugat added more dimension to the pieces by creating an abstract feel to it. I feel like I'm in a trance the longer I stare at them. Very beautiful.

This looks like sunset to me. I love the colors and the shape!

This looks like a deep ocean to me.

Mark Tamayo

Subtle sexy. I've always been fascinated with sheer because it gives off a sexy vibe without actually exposing the skin but gives you a bit of sneak peek instead. One does not really need to shed off the layers to be sexy, a little bit of sheer goes a long way.

Vania Romoff

Classy and elegant. Vania Romoff's collection reminds me so much of Carolina Herrera. That woman is the epitome of class and elegance. Now these pieces are even fit for a queen! Or maybe someone of high power.

This piece made me think of Morticia Addams! I really think this will be her real-life dress if she ever exists today.

This piece is perfect for a greek goddess!

Veejay Floresca

It's all in the details. Veejay Floresca made these details the main focus of his pieces and the rest are pretty simple. If you want to stand out from the crowd, these are perfect for you!

Who would've thought that white can be edgy too? I love these pieces.

I had to borrow these images since the ones I took were of poor quality and I didn't want to put bad images on my blog. Only the best for you, dear readers. :)
