Last week was Philippine Fashion Week Holiday 2012. I don’t usually get to go because of work but this time I had a free day: Saturday. Which was perfect, because that was also my good friend, Veejay Floresca’s fashion show. I’ve really become such a fan of his work after doing the MASIF 2011 show in Malaysia (see: Malaysia crew reunion). I wore a gown and a dress at that show, and really got to see (and feel) for myself just how much work he puts into his creations.
Veejay’s PFW show was at 530pm, and was part of the group of young, talented designers like Chris Jasler, Melchor Guinto and Philipp Tampus. I have to say, I was impressed, as each one offered a different take on the holiday season. I also got to see Front Row fashion at its best, as fashion editors and stylists were seen wearing the hottest trends. Here are photos from the show:
