I went to the Philippine Fashion Week Holiday 2013 with my wife to checkout the new trends. It's nice to see a designers' creation on runway up close especially if the designer is a good friend. Congratulations to Melchor Guinto for an impressive collection.

A spin-off from the Fashion-PRobe: Jian Lasala shoot, During sundown, since we still have time we made one more set themed "Party Breather". This was done on a veranda overlooking the Manila bay sunset. Trully amazing scene...
