Protacio did a collection of handpainted jackets seasons ago and I thought we'd revisit that because I wanted a strong graphic print on a custom made suit for PREVIEW EMERGING FASHION TALENT AWARDS(PEFTA). Unlike his previous collection, this one is done in high contrast allowing the colors to surface from a black base. I love the result as it reminded me of graffiti and Jackson Pollock. Though not as clear in the photo are the thin silver drippings which add a subtle shine to the whole artwork.
It was a fun evening with friends in the fashion industry getting support from corporate sponsors enabling them to expand their businesses.
