Bratz Tokyo A-Go-Go!

Chloe, Sasha, Yasmin and Jade
What you are about to read is merely my frivolous obsession over this silly doll... But I have just been in-love with them ever since! So please forgive this almost-30-year-old-who-thinks-she's-still-10 for drooling and obsessing over childish things such as these Bratz Dolls~
As I remember it, it was probably around 2004 when I gave birth to my son Atreyu when Bratz launched this Tokyo-A-Go-Go series of dolls out in the market. It was so unique especially during that time. Japanese / Tokyo Street Fashion resources was very scarce then. I remember holding on to an old 2003 fRuits Magazine for a very long time. When I saw this Bratz Dolls series I couldn't stop looking at it. I kept coming back to the toy store... not for my baby's toys! But just to keep on staring at all of them! I'm like a poor girl drooling for them. But since I was a new mom, unemployed and barely on my own, I just stare at them and get going to buy some diapers or something for Atreyu. I think I never grew up from obsessing about toys haha.

東京: The Neon Labyrinth

It's the 50th Japan Fashion Design Contest!
It's the longest running fashion design contest in Japan!
To be honest, I was a bit hesistant to join Japan Fashion Design Contest because of the very traumatic incident that happened last year when I came to visit and support.

(Totally, BV story but just be mindful if anyone wants to join these kinds of international contests... designers should also be careful that they are representing our country. If you can't afford it, you should find a way to make it work and not suddenly burden random kababayan's abroad over-extending and abusing Filipino Hospitality. Yes, Johnthony Iballar... You hassled me, my boyfriend and my friends in Tokyo wherein I don't personally know you in Tokyo)

ANYWAYS, LESSON LEARNED, steer-clear. Anyways that's a sad incident from my last Japan Fashion Design Contest memory that I didn't even join at, I was just an innocent audience. But it shouldn't hinder me from letting myself be inspired and just let my ideas come for another contest season. Designing and creating concepts keeps me "breathing" as a designer... So I just conceive creative ideas as my mind thinks it.

Tracy's Dear Diary: Reborn!

Hola! OMG!! It's been a long time! I missed writing to keep sane. I feel that my year entered the second chapters of ending works and now I'm yearning to find a new beginning.

So much to talk about. So little time today.

Will blog again soon about life soon. So much to talk about.

Good vibes y'all!
