|THE BIG REVEAL. A tableau of models wearing Parisian shoes during the show's finale.|
Although Geo and I have done several ad campaign shoots for PARISIAN, it was our first knack at styling for their PFW show that featured a very strong, cohesive runway statement with all-white ensembles that gave rise and more focus on their latest assortment of fabulous and note-worthy shoes and bags.
During the event, it felt like the models were walking in the romantic halls of Paris, looking uber chic while sashaying on their heels and bags - a signal to all that the shoe brand continues to level up in terms of taste, fashion and even showmanship. There were three footwear collections that PARISIAN showcased during the show: royal opulence (elegant evening heels in rich velvet with sequined details), wool-worthy (boots) and colored shoes with hints of metallics.
Personally, I love the collection that featured knee-high and ankle boots while the models wore sheer tops over fur vests - very high profile, very Parisienne! My partner George Palmiano, by essence of the word, really poured his heart and soul in this collection, even cutting the fur vests by his own hands.
By the way, we'd like to thank Roland Rense Alzate and Tito Noel Crisostomo for helping us out in producing the clothes used in the runway. Our gratitude also goes to Ms. Rina Lacia-Bugayong and the whole LTBG team for giving us the creative hand in putting up the looks for the show. Of course, we would have not done these all without the help of our styling assistants - especially Sheila Danipog, Grace Boyles & Ate Rosie.
Hope you also like the whole presentation, as much as MGP does. Check out PARISIAN in all SM Department Stores now!
