Playing tribute to one of the most amazing fabrics: Lace.

I was always intriged by this fabric even when I was young. The meticulous detail is just a skill to behold. Though nowadays lace has become part of a woman's wardrobe its history would tell us it wasnt so.
Lace was used by clergy of the early Catholic Church as part of vestments in religious ceremonies, but did not come into widespread use until the 16th century.[1] The popularity of lace increased rapidly and the cottage industry of lace making spread throughout Europe to most European countries.
Traditionally, lace was used to make tablecloths and doilies and in both men's and women's clothing.

About the look: photographed by Cheka
I drew upon historical references and cultures to this look like: gothic fashion(using lace, victoriana, and black), Mask balls, imagery as seen in Chanel Spring summer 2010 ad campaign.

The real reason I wore this 'mourning' look was because I wanted to pay tribute to one of Cebu's most talented designers, Salvador Malto. His untimely passing was and still is a great loss for the industry.
I always have fond memories of Sal. Like every time I pay a visit to his atelier, he was always super accomodating. He has this exuberance which is so endearing. He was also one of the kindest designers I've met. He was also one of the few designers who inspired me,nurtured me to becoming who I am today.

Though I mourn his loss, instead of me feeling I wanted to celebrate his amazing life and express how grateful I am to have met him. For I know, even in the afterlife he will still be bringing joy to us all:) THIS IS FOR YOU SAL:)!!!!

You really did your homework there! It's really similar to having a breath of fresh air, seeing someone's ideas and initial inspiration BEHIND the overall look. Very few lookbookers manage to achieve this. You, fair Sir, have well surpassed that :) +1

It is the part of the movie by Sergei Parajanov, he was Armenian film director. The movie is called Sayat Nova (aka The Color of Pomegranates) and tells the story of Sayat Nova, who was an Armenian poet. The movie is highly symbolical, though. You can see it all here youtube.com/watch?v=yJUBu13o4lc. I'm so proud to be a part of your inspiration <3
