Producing a fashion editorial is not a walk in the park, and I guess you know that by now. But lemme tell you, this particular project was twice as hard, because I needed to source out at least 7 identical outfits with huge price differences. It took me almost a week to go around different malls and scoured every single store to look for item duplicates. With my digicam as my secret weapon, I took photos of the clothes which I felt I can find similar versions of. Example, when I spotted this nautical top at Rustan's, I had this gut feeling that I can also find one in SM. Lo and behold, meron nga! :) So, by the end of the week, I was able to build outfits based from the loose pieces that I found. And the rest was history. :P
I was privileged to shoot this with no less than Sara Black. Man, she's amazing! Plus, I had my super team--Ria Gamboa for makeup, John Valle for hair, Krystle Rius and Lou Sison as models--to make my vision come to life. Check out behind-the-scene photos here!
