Philippine Fashion Week : Cary Santiago SS13
Cary Santiago is my mentor’s mentor. He taught John Herrera who was my Fashion Design instructor.
One thing sir Cary passed from sir John and to me was about “editing” and harnessing your artistic side. It’s about control, not putting a chaos of beads and all the trimmings in the world in to one garment. Precise and balanced. That’s Cary Santiago.
There was a small snafu regarding our show passes though. I was able to prove to the staff that I did send application for invites so I was able to get me and Luie who I invited to go with me that day, in. I Also I used my “oniichan onegai” face. It never fails to get me what I want. It was a let down though, so I did not take street style photos because I wasn’t in the mood anymore.
I can miss any local fashion show but not Cary Santiago’s. He’s really good. And even though it’s couture his pieces are something I can imagine myself wearing in real life.
Because clothes can be pretty but they should be wearable too, right? :)
Sir Cary, you are an inspiration.
