Alrighty folks – another speed post here! Here’s Part 2 of PFW’s Chris Diaz, Lizanne Cua and Eric Delos Santos show (click here for Part 1).
Lizanne Cua presented her S/S 2012 ready to wear collection. Her designs are sleek, breathable, and definitely easy to wear. Here are a few selects:
The last designer to showcase their S/S 2012 collection was Eric Delos Santos. I loved the styling for this show. A mix of soft feather-like garments paired with bad-ass leather and chains = love. Also, one of the models I recognized from America’s Next Top Model, can you spot her? Danica Magpantay (winner of Ford’s 2010 Supermodel of the world) was also walking in his show – she’s beautiful!
…goes to danica magpantay! reppin her true pinay skin, danica, obviously from the philipines, won ford’s 2010 supermodel of the WORLD. (not just country, city, town… the WORLD folks)
now, i’ll be honest, i wouldn’t have known any of this if i hadn’t been snooping on sarah meier’s blog (another filipina you should know about, plus her posts are quite entertaining, plus we share a lot of friends in common as it turns out).
danica is indeed the epitome of a natural filipina beauty – without trying to bleach her god-given skin tone (as sarah meier tweeted “So to my dear Filipinas – take a look. Venus Raj, Danica Magpantay. Beautiful, dusky, exotic. STOP with the whitening creams already.” (yes, i also follow her on twitter, as should you)).
this reminds me. i need to make another trip to the philippines very soon – last time just wasn’t enough time!
