Raquel



Raquel is super duper nice :-) she knows what she likes.. i admire her so much.. successful.. an epitome of an empowered woman!

I can still remember when we had our first meeting. She asked me to design her wedding gown and her theme was "modern filipinana.." not the typical, something contemporary and very feminine.. and i really liked the challenge! :-) Instead of the typical off shoulder neckline, i made her a loose structured band made of silk pina.. ruched bodice with side panels made of callado with handmade embroidery.. and the elaborate skirt had ____ (a lot haha) yards of organdy.. she also requested to have a very dramatic back detail: a corsage of handmade flowers made of mikado silk with ostrich feathers! :-)

and to complete the look, i told her to find a super nice vintage hair accessory and when i saw what she got, i couldn't say anything but "I LOVE IT!"
