It's my first time to watch a Graduation Fashion Show of my school. There were 30 graduates this year and my teacher in Basic Fashion Design also graduated. They competed for the "Designer of the Year" award and the winner will get an all-expense paid fashion tour in Paris and a portable sewing machine from Brother Philippines. The program started around 7:00 PM and the set up of the stage and runway was just fantastic for me. Haha. While watching the show, I wanted to graduate at that very moment too. I had this giddy feeling while picturing myself and my collection in that stage. I will probably join next year's graduation. So therefore I will have two graduations next year, one for my BS Biology degree in UPLB and one for my Fashion Designing in FIP. How awesome is that! Haha.
|Rene Salud, Victor Basa, Divine Lee and Tim Yap were part of the judges as well as Andre and Daryl Chang.|
Moving on to the show proper, here are my personal favorites. Phoooooto dump ahead.
|Just because I love tiered skirts.|
|Her collection was inspired by beetles! You see, you can incorporate anything with Fashion!|
|Cute and girly dresses inspired by fairies.|
|Exquisite dresses by Erica Panlilio. My most favorite!|
|Hello there Teacher Korinne!|
|I like the long gown.|
|I would wear these suits.|
|Intricate cut outs in the fabric inspired by antique details.|
|Mikee's color-blocking collection.|
|The designer was inspired by metal, flesh and blood.|
|The model who I bumped into when I was buying yosi near my home. Kuya can you model for me next year? Haha. I have a crush on you. Hihi.|
|Seph Bagasao's. Fierce shoes too!|
|Kabog ka sa dayami! Hihi.|

|Hi there Rhian Ramos. She modeled for Yong Davalos.|
There is also a Fashion Show for the men's wear division. After that, the awarding ceremony took place.
|Who's the Designer of the Year?|
And the winner is Seph Bagasao!! OMG, what a lucky guy. I think that 2011 is his year. He is even a finalist for PEFTA. He totally deserves to win. That little guy with a big and brilliant mind. He will go a long way in Fashion Designing, I believe. =) I better start conceptualizing my collection right now so that I would also win the Graduation Show next year. Haha. Kidding.
|Tears of joy! Aww.|
After watching the show, Yna and I had dinner at CBTL. Thanks for the treat, Batch. You are always generous to me ever since. =)
|Tomato and Herb Linguine.|
|Spicy Chicken Salad.|
This is what we wore:
|Yna made her dress! <3|
|Meet my awesome graduation shoes. I gave it a road test. Haha.|
