What I’m wearing:
Glitterati Prima Donna Danceteria Skirt in White organza and Red Tulle
Shot at my house and our RED Christmas Tree.
Wore this outfit to a last minute decision to go with Nina for a fashion show featuring design collaborations of Ego and High Maintenance, which is composed of cocktail dresses by Bianca Zobel and chic chic chic EGO Laptops, a handbag skinned laptop which combines technology with fashion in a fabulous union for a mere $4000 Euros… OR MORE. Yes it cost an arm, a leg and probably my kidneys so even if it was fabulous, I had to restrain myself.
The event was at Member’s Only and Nina and I took advantage of the situation to wear our ballet tutus created and designed for our brand, GLITTERATI We both wore tutus, me in the A-List Collection Prima Donna Danceteria design and N was in the three layered tiered tutu I wore last week that we designed which will be part of the line coming out next week.
We wore red, black and white for no reason and we totally did not plan the color scheme at all. Our minds are just linked via Wifi and Bluetooth! Everyone thought we were HARAJUKU TWINS with the colors and the rouge lipstick.
WE STOOD OUT against the sea of LBDS (which I love too) but the skirts were too good to miss out seeing in the room.
WHAT MADE OUR NIGHT:
1) Socialite and Society page headliner, Maricris Zobel loved our designs and commented on our skirts.
2) Two words: OPEN BAR!
3) The handful of comments from random people on how they love the skirts and the inquiries on how they can get them.
4) The shocked faces when we tell them it was by us for our line.
5) The photos from newspapers, online style sites, magazines of us in the skirt which screams: PR!!!
6) KAISEKI! Or the idea of Kaiseki.
7) The good feedback from the creme de la creme of society… The Philippine’s very own glitterati.
WHAT DID NOT MAKE MY NIGHT ANY EASIER
1) The rain that I hate. I want the SUN!!!!
2) Going home to discover my Chictopia hacked and the hassle of editing the email address and password.
3) Spending 11pm- 3am at the Emergency room of Makati Medical Hospital with my mom, brother and boyfriend due to allergies that were too stubborn to go away and getting 3 IV injections then having a vein collapse while being injected. It hurt like hell but I was floating soon after. And besides, I’m alive. The trade off is better rather than the alternative!
Glitterati. [glit-uh-rah-tee]. n.pl. slang glamorous people: famous, rich, or fashionable people thought of as a group, especially those who are frequently photographed by the media
The name Glitterati possesses a certain allure that draws people in. The mere sound of the word suggests glamour and status, something most of us aspire for. For everyone else, Glitterati would mean exuberant, luxurious and lavish designs at friendly prices. Clothing that would definitely make the wearer stand out in a crowd.
The founders of Glitterati, Nina Estacio and Joanna Ladrido created the brand because of their passion for fashion. The clothes are for young women considered to be it-girls who epitomize the word “chic” as though the word was invented especially for them. Those who day in and day out, dazzle everyone with effortless style. Glitterati clothes are designed especially for the glitz and glamour lifestyle that can easily transition for the jet-set and on the go icond who are always in the scene. They can be either toned down or played up, for an ordinary day of high style and high fashion to hot nights painting the town red at the hippest new bars.
Glitterati designs are influenced by iconic pieces with a twist, a sense of selectiveness and high style without being pretentious or snooty. The clothes allude to subtle extravagance: timeless and iconic pieces we always turn to combined with a stunning surprise. It leaves its audience in awe and always begging for more.
“Divine decadence, darling!”
