Be Your Teenage Dream Tonight

Yes. It's from that song -that song that made everyone fall in love with Katy Perry more. Pretty much everybody got addicted to that song. I mean who wouldn't be, right? I remembered my friend, Terence, who kept updating me about how many times he played it on his iTunes. I think the last time he updated me was around 2K? Not sure.

Anyways, you guys might be wondering why I suddenly blogged about Teenage Dream. Well, it's as simple as it was the peg for a shoot I styled/directed. My photographer friend, John, asked me if I could style as well as direct the whole shoot. We've been wanting to work together for the longest time, and finally we did last Saturday.He didn't have any peg - or theme, for that matter- until the last minute.

Haven't exactly started on the post process of the photos. But here's a sort of teaser.

And enjoy the video too!

STATUS Fashion Show

So last February 11, 2011 was my first ever somewhat-directing gig for a fashion show. One of my dear high school friends who's studying in UST asked me if I could help him out with a fashion show he was organizing along with his org. Thanks Jason for the chance! Hehe. Along with the UST Community Achievers Association, we worked on this fashion show for months -just for a one night event showcasing 15 of the most amazing and talented Filipino designers:

Alodia Cecilia            Arnold Galang
Dave Ocampo         Eddie Castro
Edwin Uy                 Gerswin Qua
Gil Macaibay           Jackie Abueg
Jian Lasala               John Guarnes
Joyce Pilarsky        Lizanne Cua
Stephanie Tan      Ulysses King
Yako Reyes

(Here are just some of the designs modeled by UST students; last image is of supermodel, Irish Ong)

Stressful would be an understatement to describe the whole day. I think all of my friends who have experienced the behind the scenes of a fashion show would agree with me on this one. But of course, at the end of the day, all that matters is what you have gained from all that has happened -which is experience and new friends, for me. Haha!
