Do what you love and love what you do. (is there even such a saying?)

Ms. Aries keeps on asking me every time I’m done with doing something for Erzullie, “Timmy, how’s your experience so far?” Even though I’m so tired na; I always answer her with the same reply, “Im fine Ms.Aries, I’m having fun!”.

Really, I am truly and sincerely having fun with what I do; I looove what I do! I know that she’s just checking if I’m still doing fine with the tasks, but there’s really nothing else I can say about it.(parang love ba, you just can’t describe it. Haha!) Maybe next time Ms. Aries asks me, I’ll add the words funtabulous or amazeballs to better express how I feel. =)))

I truly didn’t feel that I was working 7 hours straight during the photo shoot for the Corporate and Resort collection. I just felt super exhausted when I got home. (And really craving for a diet coke float) =)

During the photoshoot, I got to fulfil my life-long dream to be a Stylist. Yey!

I got to style the models by assisting them through the fitting and made sure they looked camera ready. I felt like I was styling my life size FULL-FIGURED dolls. To be honest, I don’t know anything about styling. Are there even any rules when it comes to style?

I just used some techniques that I learned from Art school like Balance, symmetry and opposition and made sure that the right accessories made the look complete; Simple!

So.. What I learned from this experience:

First, I learned that desperate times call for desperate measures; (learned this in a very pricey way) having the need to check-in in a hotel just to do hair and make-up. To make the long story, short; there was an issue with the general schedule so we had to do our hair and makeup somewhere else.

Second, It’s more fun to be the model rather than be the ones behind the camera! I realized that, even though it’s very hard to model (I’ve actually seen women starve themselves just to get a job). The feeling in front of the camera is truly very surreal. I’ll admit it, naingit ako sa kanila. Maybe next time I’ll apply as a model after this internship. Ha!

Lastly, (I didn’t learn 3 things lang ha! I just think the other things are more situational than the others and you really have to experience it for yourself talaga). I’ll repeat what I said earlier, Do what you love and love what you do. Whatever happens, don’t let anything/anyone stop you from doing what you love. If you really have the “passion for fashion”.. GORA!

See you on the runways.



P.S. Here are more BTS photos =)
