Fashion-Probe features Singaporean designer Jeremy Chase. Two of his creation as a fashion design student of Management Development Institute of Singapore (MDIS) were used.
I was thrilled that he was able to fly-in Jodilly Pendre from the Philippines to model. She was also joined by another finalist of Asia's Next Top Model season 2, Nicole Lee.
Fresh from completing Fashion Design at Fashion Institute of the Philippines, Fashion-PRobe now features the work of Ella Santos. We're supposed to collaborate a shoot for the Photo Exhibit in Glorietta but unfortunately the organizers assigned her to a different photographer. That didn't stop me from shooting her creation because I believe in the creativity of her work.
Fashion-PRobe features T-Bar. It's a brand that started in Australia and currently expanding throughout the Asian region. They are known for T-shirts that are individualistic, style-driven, high quality for the youth market.
Fashion-PRobe features Fernando Pasa. We used their suits for male models on our test shoot. The styling was on the creative hands of Vorge and John Oliver.
During my test shoot (with Chameleon Models Maksim, Leslie, and Paul), I got a chance to feature the creation of Vianca Corcuera of Fashion Institute of the Philippines' graduating class.
Jerome and I had some discussion on a possible collaboration to shoot his creations for the fashion week but unfortunately it didn't push through. When I finally had time to produce a personal test shoot, I made sure that I feature Jerome Salaya Ang's creation here in Fashion-PRobe.
The theme “Woman of Stature” was built on the idea of a woman in control. This was practically illustrated on the shot we did - with our model in the skylight and with the two towers of RCBC Plaza as background.
Is it really necessary to have a stylist on a photoshoot? I'd say YES! The stylist is responsible for building the “style.” Sounds vague isn’t it? Essentially the stylist is deciding what a model or subject wears, and HOW they wear it.
For the formal release of Fashion-PRobe we featured the clothing line designed by Melchor Guinto. This shoot is a quick glance to its major product, its menswear collection.
