I had been itching to wear these pieces for fashion week because of its dramatic shape/proportion. When you walk, the garments elongate your neck, slims your upper torso and elongates your lower torso. The shirt has this draped high collar which encases the neck ann frames the face perfectly while the trousers flare into a dramatic kite shape almost like a skirt in the most amazing cotton crumpled fabric. An added plus is how the trousers almost floats in the hair as one walks on the hallway of the fashion week venue.
I dont know why but both these pieces remind me of the arctic. Its not even fur or wearable in those regions. It might be the sleek pointy shape of the trousers and the angular checks and collar shape which remind me of icicles and piercing icy winds. Echoing the arctic inspiration my hair was fashioned to resemble the hair of Jadis of The Lion, the witch, and the Wardrobe meets the Snow queen. The arctic theme extends to the pale grey eyes and bleached brows as well. In a way the total look were also apt for the festive halloween where all these lightness in the clothes make me like appear like a ghost. How timely:)

i admire this type of profile distortion in general.

the leading image at the top is striking because it is atypical of your shots. very artistic and melancholy.

oh i just found someone in Manila who knows you!
