No Spring nor Summer Beauty hath such grace....
The much raved about fashion series, Fashion Watch Quartet 2011 opened with a roster of homegrown talent featuring the Filipino fashion designer, Len Nepomuceno yesterday at Makati Shangrila Hotel attended by media and selected special guests.
From bridal gowns and evening wear, Len Nepomuceno is one of the few top designers commissioned to create fashions for iconic Barbie doll to raise funds for a Ballet Philippines auction for the benefit of their scholars. She is a member and currently the Vice-President of the prestigious Fashion and Design Council of the Philippines (FDCP). Her collection for the Fashion Watch is about the early start of spring, where colors are starting to change from heavy fall-winter to light and airy spring-summer. NEW BEGINNINGS with colors such as honeysuckle for lifting spirits, peony as a romantic attachment and silver clouds for quintessential classics.
The peony details matched well with the colors of fall-winter to airy spring-summer dresses. It was hard to shoot at every glance of models wearing the dresses walking on each aisle because every design was really impeccable.
Fashion Watch 2011 is a project of CFDP (Council of Fashion Designers of the Philippines) to run from April to November, 2011. Each week will feature the collection of two designers back-to-back to unveil magnanimous Filipino craftsmanship to be held at the lobby of the prestigious Shangrila Makati Hotel.
The series will feature 19 of the country's most notable designers, each showcasing a brand new collection. Each designer to Fashion Watch Quartet will exclusively showcase their Holiday collection early on in the year which means you won't see their collection on any other fashion show series. The Spring/Summer collection will be shown towards the latter part of the year like the fashion timetables abroad. They will also be staging special shows as several internationally known ASEAN designers will be flown in to display their own creations to the Filipino public soon. Besides an A-list roster of designers, models and media partners, The Philippine Star, Preview, StyleBible, and StarWorld, Fashion Watch Quartet boasts of industry greats working behind-the-scenes like Patrick Rosas and his team for the hair and make-up, Grace Molina as Project Coordinator and Director and Manila's Prince of Fashion, Inno Sotto as Creative Director.
