I woke up this morning feeling incredibly sleepy. I think this past week at CPFW caught up to me. It’s already Tuesday, and I haven’t even started some of the To Do’s from Monday. I have to find a place to live in NYC [still, which = stressing me out], and edit two videos. How do I get through weeks like these? I’ll share with you a little secret, I resort to Disney movies, preferably, Peter Pan, or The Wizard Of OZ. They put me in a instant good mood. When times get stressful or serious, I remind myself that I’m not saving lives, and everything will be OK. So, Disney movies give me that childhood fairytale feeling back. I read a quote on Instagram today: “Surround yourself with people who take their work seriously, but not themselves.” – Colin Powell. Which is why today, I am a Mermaid.

Fresh off the runway! Here are some of my favourites from this past week at Canada Philippine Fashion Week. How incredible is the detail? The majority of these gowns belong to Philippine designers, Francis Libiran, and Norman Noriega. I can’t believe the week is already over! I also can’t believe how much I have learned in just one week.
It’s back to editing for me!

My red carpet moment is brought to you by my new friends, the photographers. I found this experience rather hilarious. Apparently a “money shot” is when you get the A-list designer to look at your camera straight on. Well, I personally like close ups with them looking past me, I got no Money Shots in the beginning. As the week went on, I was right in there. Calling their names, and saying ” look here, look here” [then I would laugh at myself]. The best moment of the entire week, was at the Thompson Hotel after party, when one of the photographers came to me, and started to talk camera talk. He asked if I published yet, and to see some of my photos, and then talked about his lens. I was so confused with the whole conversation, that I must have looked like a total idiot. I had to resort to the good old nod and smile, and ninja dust out of the conversation. Here is some red carpet style from yesterday’s final Runway show event!
Can’t wait to show you some of my favourites tomorrow!

Obviously every event comes with CK’s close-ups. I have been trying to get used to Event Photography this week, since that’s not really my style. So, I’ll do a “Hey guys, can you smile for me?”, and then right after, I’ll snap close ups on their outfits. Haha. My most favourite discovery is the first photo. That ankle detail under his pant made me smile. That is also John Ablaza, my most favourite designer of the weekend. He is literally the cutest man I have ever met. I have noticed tons of floral this week, on the men. It’s actually fascinating, the men seem more dressed up than the ladies this week. I remember standing beside a man holding a clutch on the opening day, and thought to myself, he wears that better than I ever could. The blond haired man that you see a lot in my photos is Montreal Jewellery designer Jon De Porter. His fashion this week, Has. Been. Incredible. I LOVE men in jewellery.Last night, he walked into the event wearing layers of his pearls. Very Karl Lagerfeld.
I’ll be picking up some of this fashion after this week. Chunky ankle braceletes here I come!
Tonight at Roy Thompson Hall is the Runway Show! I can’t wait to get my hands on that runway fashion… well technically not my hands, my camera.
