Artist Portfolio: Dani, Celeste, Macky

Portfolio-making is one of SighStyles activities to highlight its advocacy of promoting talents of artists from models, photographers, hair and make-up artists, fashion designers, fashion accessory designer, and fashion stylists like me.  If you have been following this blog, I have helped and may have encouraged others to do more for their talents.  I have worked with enthusiasts, who at the same time want to be profound with their field of interest and was also able to collaborate with professionals. I devote this post to these individuals who have inspired me in one way or another to keep rolling, to sustain the drive and to remain motivated to be more better than what is present.
I am blessed to be in a circle of co-workers who have similar passion with me - the arts.  Although, we have distinct propensities, but the denominator is still for the love of art.

I have a number of late-night sleeps in pursuing this black and white concept for the local newspaper.  It started in the later months of last year.  While I was browsing over for the fall /winter trends, I was the happiest when Black and White was one of the trends of the seasons.  So the planning happened instantly.  Getting an approval …

Sigh Styles Concept for Sunstar: Botanical Print for S/S 2014

There is no Spring season here in the Philippines, but Summer? Yes, we do have it!  Fashion-wise the two seasons: Spring/Summer do go together.  I was at the verge of conceptualizing and reviving cyEcle - my 2011 online shop via blogspot then.  But this time, I needed a more dynamic and hyper-shopper type of audience.  So I re-launched that online clothing shop thru OLX.Ph (familiar with it?), and for the first time I also learned how to create a page in facebook.  With my on and off contributions with Sunstar newspaper, which may have possibly gathered more audience for the re-launch, I suggested a fashion trend -BOTANICAL PRINT - that best fit for Spring-Summer seasons and did receive instant approval for another feature.  

Sunstar is always entitled to create its own interpretation of the trend.  The feature was out on May 2, 2014 still at Shopping Bag section of the newspaper.   It was entitled PICK FLOWERS, in time for the month of May, the month of Flores de Mayo, where flowers ar…
