Best in late post. Better late than never, right? ;)

Visit Peacocks at SM Southmall

Peacocks- a retail brand from London offers updated trendy fashion that ranges from clothes, shoes, PJs, and accessories for men and women with incredibly low prices.

Last November 19, we we're invited to style their store mannequins for a week long display. We're not really stylists per se, but our love for fashion and own styles does justice. At least I think so. ☀

it's so fun dressing up mannequins
Hoarding possible outfits from the whole store is like a dream come true! It's like a big big closet full of clothes and I was overwhelmed (haha!).  It took me almost 2 hours to finally decide what I wanted my mannequin to wear. While childhood memories flashes back when I was yet playing dress up with my barbies, then I realized it's easier to dress them than life-size mannequins. -_-

at last.

Thanks again for having us! The experience was fun especially being with Z & Mark :)

Be sure to check out Peacocks when you're in the area!

Michael Antonio

You're definitely living in a nutshell if you haven't heard about Michael Antonio. Especially if you're a fashion enthusiast or just a shoe lover you have to have heard of the brand Michael Antonio. In my case, I'm both so imagine my excitement when my partner & I got tapped to design their new store in Trinoma. It's our first retail project that we will be handling from design phase to completion, and we can't wait to unveil it this December :)

Our proposed perspective:

Our first concept was a Manhattan style inspired apartment but after a couple of revisions (with the considerations of the quantity of shoes to be displayed, the limited space, and long term design) it was best to go linear but with a twist (ALWAYS).

I'm most excited about the ceiling and the center display boxes. The contractor is seriously having a headache with our multi-leveled ceiling- no level should be the same height! Hahahaha! 

I'll post completed project ASAP! We go live on December! Be sure to check it out!
