The Styling Team namely: Reg, Me, Rudolph and Mikka were tasked to each have a shoot that we would handle on our own.  A much needed challenge that was welcomed by all with both jitters and excitement. Mine was to feature the clothes of Fashion Design Council of the Philippines's (FDCP) designers to promote their contest entitled, Weaving The Future: A Social Design Competition.    I was so lucky to have seen these creations up close! Together with the help of the accessories from Gerry Sunga, Aranaz  and Joyce Makitalo pieces, the looks we achieved were stunning!

Had the pleasure to be partnered with Reg for this project that brought us in one of Makati's skyscraper's helipad/roof deck. When shooting for SM Accessories the rule is MORE is MORE! It was so much fun piling accessories on especially since we are working with little ladies!  You can not go wrong with their pretty pieces!!!
