When I went to Cebu last April, I decided to do some fabric shopping:) there I found tons of amazing prints including the metallic check fabric I wore in the previous looks. One print which initially caught my attention was this gorgeous bright red zebra print overlaying a black zebra print on a deep rich cerulean blue base. Despite it was jersey, a slinky material that is mostly used for flowing gowns and dresses, I bought it anyway knowing it can be manipulated to be made into a suit. Protacio geniusly crafted this strong shouldered suit which had no buttons to achieve a rich printed suit which appears to have no cuts in the front. Mock seamless I call it. The pants were cut like leggings but it had trouser details like pockets and waistbands to it. Pure love.

I wore this look on the 4th day of Philippine Fashion Week. The blood red headpiece is fresh from Xernan Orticio's amazing collection shown on the same week. I knew I had to have it. It was a perfect accessory to the already amazing print look.

In a way the print reminds me of the savagery of the wild. It might sound too gorey to mention but I imagine how a zebra is hunted by a lion in the vast jungle, its blood staining its hide as it lays dying near an oasis, where its image is reflected onto the water.

The crown in itself reminds me of a bloody attack in the wild.
