Janet Hsieh “Discovers” Philippine Fashion!

Friday, April 26th, 2013

I love playing dress up!  It’s a throwback to my youth when my friends and I would play endlessly and live in a  fantasy world where we all wore ball gowns and make believe parties.  Fast forward to today and this make believe world has become a reality for me. This became once again apparent, when my friend Bianca Gonzalez took her friend Janet Hsieh over to my studio.  Janet is a television personality and model based in Taipei, Taiwan. She is the host of the Discovery Travel and Living Channel’s popular series FUN TAIWAN.  This is her website   I love her show and watch her on TV quite often.

Janet and Bianca in MALI!

Janet is in Manila to do a special show on the Philippines!  I was more than happy to show her our Philippine fashion and together with Bianca play and dress up with my collections and frosted with the most beautiful accessories found in my store.

So happy to play dress up with these two beautiful ladies.


The crew!


It’s alays fascinating to watch the behind the scene action.


We also featured the the “Maia” clutch from Rags2Riches.


On-Trend with black and white!


The modern Barong Tagalog!


Social media time!


Janet in my “bolero” jacket.



I showed her my current Spring and Summer collection called MALI and then moved over to try my Modern Filipino creations made from local fibres like pina, banana and abaca.  It was a really great afternoon filled with lots of fashion, laughter and FUN!  Proving once again that the Philippines is not only fun it’s FASHIONABLE as well! 

I had to instagram this!


Like ladies in a salon.


So happy to have been able to show case what in my mind is Modern Filipino fashion.


Obviously we were happy playing.


Some various permutations of Philippine fabrics.


I think this is really elegant.

Thank you Bianca and Janet for coming over!  I cannot wait to do it all over again.
