Fashion moments can show themselves in the most unexpected places, and real life fashion–candidly captured–often inspires designers with their unstudied style and beauty. Once, while in the mall, I caught sight of an older couple on an escalator…she was wearing her hair wrapped in a turban with lounge-y pants, while he was wearing a navy linen blazer and light pants. So stylish! At another time, on a small island off Palawan, I saw a beautiful French girl in a modest bikini, take her cotton sarong and nonchalantly throw it over her shoulders and twist it, like it was an elegant shawl…trés chic!
So whether it’s on the city streets or on a far-flung stretch of beach, daily fashion can be some of the most fresh, inspiring and memorable. Because fashion and design are not solely for the magazine pages and couture catwalks…fashion and design are for everyone, everyday, everywhere.
