True to its name Camaieu, which means ‘multiple tones’, the quaint, French-themed launch was a showcase of lively and bright colors. Nicole Andersson hosted both events and introduced the highlight of the show: three collections styled in the unique expressions of Katarina Rodriguez, Bianca King, and Tweetie De Leon-Gonzalez, Camaieu’s brand ambassadors.

Katarina’s on-the-go personality showed through her collection, which featured versatile separates that can take one from the school, to the mall, to a night out in the city. Romantic yet easy-going was the theme of Bianca’s collection, her chosen outfits hinting at sexiness with some show of skin, balanced by classic silhouettes flattering many body types. Meanwhile, Tweetie’s collection was a display of sleekness and sophistication, with many of the pieces in black and white or in graphic patterns rendered in monochromatic tones.
