I was supposed to go to Japan this year. ITs one of those vacay moments where i can relax and soak in the culture of another country. But certain circumstances prevented me from doing so. I'm not sad. I'm just frustrated because I haven't been to an out of town trip or a short vacay since the start of the year. We all deserve some serious time out from all the work we are doing. The last time I went 'on vacation' last May during holy week ended up getting cancelled( urgent medical situation).
So i dreamt of Japan via clothing/styling. Departing from my usual Filipino designed clothes I chose three amazing Japanese designers to represent my look today. I feel like Im in Japan.

About the look:
The look is a nod to the stylish use of black as well as red in Japanese fashion. Also, it is heavily inspired from the Phoenix, a mythical creature that dies(burns itself) and resurrects again( rising from the ashes). My skirt symbolizes my wings and the the flames by the tinge of red and brown in the look.
Despite the dark, apocalyptic styling, It is an optimistic look because it symbolizes more than just japan fashion and culture but also their country's resilience, able to rise above the hardships their country is currently facing.
