When tasked to create a pre-Holiday editorial what comes to mind?
PARTY!!! (Adore Delano tone)
I have to admit it was daunting at first, this is after all my first solo editorial for a LOCAL publication. The minimalist in me also normally runs away from the aforementioned things, I mean I am a monochromatic unicorn. ☺️ I knew my UKAY finds won’t suffice to mount the work at hand, hence the inevitable, I got to try to PULLOUT. For every DM sent to each designer comes with a prayer. All I needed was someone to say YES and I’m sold.
Coming off of our successful AFTER PARTY PARTY Editorial, I was so excited to work again with Ed (our heartthrob photographer) and fellow hunty, Mikki (our super talented hmua). It was gonna be EPIC I reckoned.
On the day of the shoot, the anal guard of the UP Biology Bldg did not allow us to make the editorial inside the premises, forcing us to shoot outdoors. I live for curve balls like this because it creates great memories to tell - i.e. We did hair and make up at the trunk of Mikki’s car.
Thank you again to everyone who made this shoot one for the books:
Ed, Mikki, Paulina
Marion, Erwin, Love and Francis of FIP Ortigas
Yves Camingue, Miz and Moxie, Edsel Los Baños and Uberfinds Vintage Fashion Store
To Spotted, thank you for the opportunity.
