Photo Shoot with Mario Testino (!!!)

(continued from “My Global Campaign Adventure”) This was it!!! The day had come. I woke up earlier than usual from excitement (though truthfully, I barely slept the night before), and I got ready and packed some of my clothes which could possibly be used in the photo shoot later that day. I debated with myself whether to wash my hair (since my hair had that nice, second-day hair look) but since we had gone to the food markets the day before, I decided to shampoo so it would smell nice when they fixed…and I assumed, blew-out…my hair. We were...

My Global Campaign Adventure

Okay, I’ve had a couple of months to process this–still–unbelievable experience of being part of the new Real Beauty global campaign of Dove (read “#RealBeauty, Surreal Experience” here), and if anything, time to breathe and think has just made what happened seem even more incredible! At the time, everything fell into place so quickly that there was barely time to consider what was happening, and in the months that passed, not being able to talk about it just made me focus on work to keep my mind off the anticipation. To backtrack a little, all this whiplash-inducing excitement happened...

When I received a surprise overseas phone call about the possibility of being part of a global campaign that has long championed women’s uniqueness, diversity and authenticity (along with being the top ad campaign of the 21st century–I know because I googled it), I was thrilled! Personally I’ve always believed in...

Fashion On Point

The spirit of the times is all about freedom, movement, creative self-expression…and the modern Filipina captures that zeitgeist and makes it her own. She takes a turn towards modernity with a nod to tradition, playing with fashion and infusing it with an easy elegance and a lighthearted spirit. As the world around her continues to change, she is always ready to confidently–and gracefully–make that leap and move with the times.    Modern Filipiniana pañuelo-inspired navy lace gown: Tippi Ocampo/ Model: Rissa Mananquil-Trillo/Make-up: Model’s own (Happy Skin)/ Photos: Ito Ocampo Bookmark on Delicious Digg this post Recommend on Facebook share...

PASSIONista: Rissa Mananquil-Trillo

There are more sides to fashion, and many, many more sides to the people in fashion, than meet the collective eye. Beyond the shows and catwalks, we discover people with a myriad of interests and dreams who aren’t just fashionistas, they’re passion-istas. The poise, the strength, the focus–even when Rissa Mananquil-Trillo was president of PMAP (Professional Models Association of the Philippines), you could always sense her training as a dancer. It wasn’t just in the confident, graceful way she always carried herself, but also in the focused way she took her experiences and infused them into whatever she did, from writing a...
