I received a wonderful surprise today. My friend Ria Limjap brought some sweet jewelry created by the very talented Helena Carratala. For those fashion babies out there, Helena Carratala (her name then was Helena Guerero) was the famous fashion visionnaire in the late ’70s and ’80s! I remember my Mom wearing her line called AZABACHE and it was FIERCE!
The jewelry line is from her own label called Mangenguey, which is also the name of her beautiful island in Palawan. I have not yet had the chance to see the island but I made a promise to myself that I will see her island soon!
In the meantime, I am very proud to show you her jewelry, which I will be selling in my store! Come and have a look at her lovely pieces!
