Fashion Week Spring Summer 2009

Rhino-like grid headpiece by Kermit Tesoro

It's Philippine Fashion Week again. I wasn't able to attend as much shows as I did during last season. Still, I was lucky enough to see imaginative and refreshing collections. In general, a lot of collections were hits rather than misses (i.e., those with pieces not apt for the season). Here are a few photo highlights.

Cotton Candy Whimsy. Youthful designs and new shapes from Kenneth Chua.

Personal Pick. Cuffed shorts by Pier Lim.

Little Cute Dress. Philip Tampus opens the Project Runway final show with a color muted but highly detailed collection. One of the crowd favorites was this baby dress.

Unzip to Transform
This convertible ensemble may very well make Aries Lagat win Project Runway. But we have yet to see as Philip gave quite an elegant show.

Goldfishes and Jellyfishes
I am not sure if these are the inspirations for their collections. Nikko Sonico's had fin-like ruffles and a goldfish palette, while Regine Dulay's pieces and parasols evoked images of graceful jellyfishes. Much like jellies, they were extra exquisite when they were hit by the light.

Fashion Week runs until October 29 (Wednesday) at the SMX Convention Center and SM Mall of Asia.

More to follow. :)
