“LOST LOVE”

I can only do what I know. I can only create from what I feel.

And when sadness has taken hold of your heart and floods it, the only way to escape the drowning is to express it. Expression is a way to breathe whilst submerged in the ebbs and flow of sorrow.

I realize that the only way to defeat sadness is to embrace it, to let it envelop your being. If you don’t want it to overwhelm, you have to befriend it. You must understand it and know it’s intricacies.

This is what I’ve come to know:

Sadness is black. It is what is left when all the other colors are muted. It is the shade of emptiness when reflection dies.

Sadness is a force and it comes in irregular insistent waves. It folds the fabric of your being into irregular shapes, pleated like a scar or crumpled like a wound. Sadness is both gentle and unrelenting; the texture is sometimes soothing, sometimes rough, but always on the edge of something desperate.

And when you have come to know sadness, it becomes pleasing. Sadness becomes a friend. It becomes alive. Thus, sadness becomes Melancholia. Sadness becomes beautiful.

KAYE MORALES

A graduate of SOFA (School of Fashion and the Arts) with a background of production design as well as interior design from DLSU-CSB, fashion designer Kaye Morales has found a style that intertwines opposing designs with utmost taste – urban street wear with class, punk with sophistication and elegance with a wild streak. Fully expressing this fusion of creativity in her prêt-à-porter line, “Schizo” located at Makati’s shopping district, the Ramp in Glorietta, she also shows versatility in her very own made-to-order line stamped with her name. From cocktail chic to formal coats, Kaye’s signature of geometric patterns and shapes is distinct and her avant-garde touch is unmistakable.

Featured in fashion authority media such as Mega, Preview, Cosmopolitan, Sense & Style, Stylebible and major broadsheets Philippine Daily Inquirer and Manila Bulletin’s Style Weekend, Kaye has staged several fashion shows and has been a contestant in notable fashion competitions, like ETC’s Generation M: The Mega Young Designers Competition 2011, the Triumph Fashion Show and the Bravo Britannia fashion show. Kaye has also participated in prestigious fashion exhibits such as “Rags to Riches” at Greenbelt 5, which has pushed her name further in the realm of couture.

Kaye’s mark of craftsmanship has made her the ultimate choice of big Filipino celebrities. Currently furthering her studies at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London. , this lady’s inexhaustible zest to delve into the arts has also lead her to finish a foundation of makeup course in the Makeup Academy in London. With that said, one can only be certain that Kaye’s passion seamlessly flows into her daring designs. Without a doubt, great design is the only thing to be found at Kaye Morales’ atelier on 8862 Madrid Building, Sampaloc St., San Antonio Village, Makati and a promise that you get nothing less than a big fashion statement with an extra edge.

Preview Ball 2013

PREVIEWBALL2013IMG_8147 FashionAteTheLawyer

THIS IS SO DISCO!

In celebration of its 18th year, Preview gathered fashion icons and style mavens and transformed Hyve at the W Global Center into a music wonderland for the Preview Best Dressed Ball 2013.

The crazy crowd!

The crazy crowd!

Stylish dancing shoes filled the dance floor as one music genre shifted to another through the beats of DJ Mars Miranda (disco), DJ Funk Avy (top of the pops), and DJ Euric (hip-hop/R&B). International DJ Eclipse of Zouk Singapore was flown in especially for the event. This year’s Preview Ball was a night of musical journey co-presented by CK Eyewear, TRESemmé and Tattoo. Other partners include major sponsor Havaianas and official drink sponsor Belvedere Vodka.

“It’s been quite a while since we’ve had a proper turn on a dance floor, the kind that involves more than just fist-pumping to your favorite song,” Preview Editor-in-Chief Pauline Juan excitedly said about this year’s ball. “Preview turns 18 years old this month, and there is a need to party—to dance and drink amidst good friends and great music.”

Preview also introduced a new twist to this year’s Best Dressed List. “Style is essentially a product of the relationships we build. It is on this premise that we’ve built this year’s Best Dressed List. After eight years of doing the same format, we’ve decided to shake things up a bit by celebrating the relationships that lead to being ‘Best Dressed,’” explained Pauline.

In the spotlight for the Best Dressed List is the high-profile stylist-client relationship of Liz Uy, Vice Ganda, Belle Daza and Bea Alonzo, who also grace the July cover of Preview. Vice Ganda admits that during his second concert, he didn’t want any other stylist other than Liz, who happens to be Preview’s own fashion editor-at-large. Belle wanted to work with Liz, too, whose style she also admires. Bea, on the other hand, met Liz during her first Preview cover. She then requested her to be her personal stylist for the Star Magic Ball and in her other projects.

Where else would young ladies Betina, Selina and Juliana Ocampo get their looks and fashion flair but from mom Tina Maristela-Ocampo? Fashion seems to be in the genes in this family, and Tina is very much proud of her daughters. “The first time I saw Selina and Betina working together, I found it so cute, seeing them putting swatches and beadwork together.”

Also on the Preview Best Dressed List are fashion allies Joey Samson and Ivarluski Aseron; jewelry designer Janina Dizon-Hoschka and her client-friends Ruby Gan, Ria Bolivar and Ann Jacobe; business partners Kai Lim, Nicole Whisenhunt, Emi Jorge, Trisha Calma and Camille Ongpauco of home and lifestyle retail boutique Cura V; Everywhere We Shoot couple Ryan and Garovs Vergara; fashion bloggers and girl friends Camille Co, Laureen Uy and Patricia Prieto; twins and photographers Tracianne and Trasienne Estrada; designer Boom Sason and her muse and BFF Xtina Superstar; and mother-and-daughter tandem Sarah Meier and Kaya Albano. Preview’s July issue details the relationships of these Best Dressed groups, along with their respective fashion picks.

Fashion truly played a great part in shaping their relationships. “Indeed, fashion is the undercurrent that brings us together. Oftentimes mundane, occasionally profound, it is a cultural power many don’t acknowledge,” Pauline shared.
