I finally get to bring you the first snippet of the Young Designer’s Lookbook Edric Chen and I shot together featuring designers from the Fashion Institute of the Philippines. I was kindly invited to co-judge the 2013 Graduation Show back in July and I was blown away by the talent walking down the runway. It was then that I realised that I wanted to shoot the outfits these talented young minds have created. I immediately fell in love with Ajay Javier’s collection; the soft, midnight blue separates provided the perfect amount of mystery. All the more with this stunning three piece outfit, in all of it’s collared, asymmetrical, layered goodness. The subtle differences in the print remind me of shadowy nightfall so when Edric and I shot this we wanted to complement the mystery – hiding behind a veil of wet hair, black eyeliner and of course, crimson lips.
