Philippine Fashion Week F/W 2010 Day 1 - Runway

Philippine Fashion Week started with the Vision and Trends show that featured young designers like Don Protasio, Happy Andrada, Norman Noriega and Patrick Galang. Among the bunch Don Protasio and Norman Noriega were my favorites!!!

After the show my fashion friends and I had the privilege of meeting Don Protasio. He gave us the lowdown on his Fall/Winter 2010 "Insistent" collection while enthusiastically showing us his amazing pieces! I am definitely a fan now Don!!! Walang halong chika!

The genius behind Don Protasio
Miguel Celestial from El Bosquejo carefully laid out a few of the accessories from the collection
Don mentioned to us that he commissioned HIV-positive women to handmade this crochet top
