HYD Update: Second Collection Launched + Friday Fashion Fever

Following the success of their first collection, Last January 25, the Hot Young Designers launched their second collection, with the aim of catering to young professionals. The pieces the designers have come up with aims to be flexible from day to night use.

Marc Blanco’s Collection

Inspired by the movie Fatal Attraction, as well as his friends from the Fashion Institute of the Philippines, Marc used pink and purple for this quarter’s collection. He said that he never imagined using these colors, as he has never been a color fanatic. This is a deviation from his favorite black pieces, yet remains sleek and edgy.

Bailey Agustin-Dava’s Collection – La Playa de Moda

La Playa de Moda, or when translated means, “The Beach of Fashion”, aims to incorporate swimwears into use outside of the usual swimwear scene. Gone are the days when you can only wear these sexy pieces to the beach.

Jackie Abueg’s “The Unusual Marauder” Collection

Jackie Abueg’s unorthodox use of materials typically used for trousers have made this collection effortlessly chic, not to mention practical. Her collections still very much reflects her minimalist design philosophy.

Klart Lim’s “Hello, Sexy!” Collection

The pieces in Klart Lim’s collection are characterized by its flashiness, generous in glitters and sequins, that will definitely catch your eye. I love this collection, and I definitely see these pieces being worn to bars and clubs. Nothing says party than these dresses.

Renan Pacson’s “Mama Carine”

Renan Pacson’s “Mama Carine” Collection is inspired by Carine Roitfeld, a former editor-in-chief of French Vogue. Renan describes Carine Roitfeld as a figure that evokes dominance, influence, and authority. In Renan’s words, his collection is “power dressing with lots of female charm.” Personally, Renan’s collection is the most wearable, especially in the corporate setting. I definitely feel that lots of girls would love to rock this collection.

I loved this quarter’s shoot. I felt the energy, and the strengths of each of the designers’ collection. Kudos to the brands, stylists, makeup artists, photographers, and designers who worked to make this quarter’s collection set look so awesome.

A treat to the HYD buyers: HYD would be raffling off fivce pieces from the five designers’ collections for those who have purchased from January 25 to February 25, 2012.

And another treat! Submit a photo of yourself in an HYD attire , and you might just get to take home a gift pack from Pond’s Philippines!

On February 3, the designers will be at Friday Fashion Fever, an exclusive bazaar to be held at Studio SnR, 3rd floor Millenium Plaza Building, Meralco Avenue. They would be selling their collections personally. Don’t miss it!
