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.
Philippine Fashion Week
Philippine Fashion Week featured Melchor Guinto's new collection for Holiday 2013. The theme for his new collection is Baroque inspired. Here's the final layout of the press kit I've shot for Melchor.
Weeks prior to the Philippine Fashion Week on May 2011 my friend Mel sought help from me to shoot his press kit for his Menswear Collection. Just a week before his first fashion week we shoot this project.
Months before the (PFW) Philippine Fashion Week Spring / Summer 2012, fashion designer Melchor Guinto and I has been planning for the shoot of his press kit for the big fashion event. Unlike our first press kit for PFW-Holiday 2011, we'd like to have a better output this season.
On location shoot is indeed complicated. This experience is yet another lesson for me on how team effort plays a big role in pulling a shoot off successfully. Melchor and I had already been preparing for this shoot a month before the Philippine Fashion Week – Holiday 2012. He picked the theme “After work denizen” for his fashion show – the same theme which we used as well, for his press kit.
This season's theme "Nomades Courant", introduced us to another perspective of fashion designer Melchor Guinto. It mainly focused on plaid suits and trousers, and suits of lively, bright, and bold colors. I'm sure those who went to the show would understand why it is a different Mechor creation.
Philippine Fashion Week – Menswear Collection was held on May 10, 2011 at SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia in Pasay City. Our fashion designer friend Melchor Guinto of Azur Lapis Lazuli invited us to the event where his work was also presented.
