Inspired by remarkable women like Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Loren Legarda and Boots Anson-Roa, designer Eddie Baddeo recently presented a collection that speaks of these women of power.
During Philippine Fashion Week at the SMX Convention Center, Baddeo showed his 10-piece collection made of stretch satin and silk cocoon. His statement? Sculptured sleeves he deftly shaped into sinuous accents for his jewel-toned gowns.
Models in Wilson stilettos looked luxurious in hair and makeup by Jinky Ilusorio and Rudy Adriatico. Director Raymond Villanueva set the evening to a romantic mood.
“The atmosphere is the ‘80s, when people were brimming with optimism and everyone was just happy! At that time, YSL and Ungaro came up with clothes that were vibrant and colorful,” Baddeo declares.
