It all started with my Fashion Designer-Oneesan, Kate Torralba's New York phonecall last week... I still couldn't thank her enough for the trust and for believing in me that she endorsed me to Maxene Magalona to make her a matching Hello Kitty and Dear Daniel Headpieces for her and Renz Fernandez. Above all, I was sooooooo happy to make these pieces just because I'm totally a Hello Kitty lover myself! Haha!
It was so fun making them actually... I enjoyed picking the perfect fur materials and the most stunning looking fabrics fit for Hello Kitty's Bow! I actually wanna embellish Dear Daniel's Ears more but I restrained myself... It's a boy's headpiece! haha!
Making the Hello Kitty & Dear Daniel Headpieces...
|Choosing among the cutest fabrics fit for Hello Kitty! Of course Hello Kitty is the MUSE!|
Hello Kitty sat by me the whole time haha! She's supervising what we were doing. LOL!
Inspiration Board for Maxene...
I always enjoy making inspiration boards for designs... It's like a conglomeration of ideas! It's actually my favorite part in creating my pieces!
|Of course I have to make a kawaii inspiration board! It's always fun to conceptualize cute ideas!!|
It's Finally Done!! So CUTE!
|Finally it's done!! Haha! So cute!!|
Delivery Time! Haha! #ootd
|Well, I just have to put this delivery-time #ootd don't I?|
I just like looking fashionable while working!
My next favorite part of creating designs is actually delivering them to clients! Haha! I feel like a parent taking her child to the first day of school! Haha! Like a big feeling of relief and sense of pride. LOL! So dramatic!
But it's true... It's actually priceless to see clients looking so pretty and satisfied... I always have this vision in my mind how they would look like and I feel like a fulfilled parent whenever I see any client in-sync with my vision as a designer...
Oh BTW, today is my birthday! (errr... may be by the time I get to post this it would be 'YESTERDAY was my birthday') Haha! Yes, my birthday is Halloween! But since I celebrated the whole weekend, I just fell asleep this evening. Haha! But the good thing was... I woke up with a very nice WhatsApp picture message from my gurlfriend Coreen...
|Thank you Coreen and CoRics for this photo!|
I'm so happy to see Maxene rockin' my creation! I remember her saying she thinks she's Hello Kitty... Haha! I must agree!! You really are the real-life Hello Kitty, Maxene! Super fits you perfectly!

This was a super fun gig to make and I'm so happy my fashion-oneesan, Kate Torralba and of course to the real-life Hello Kitty-chan... Maxene trusted me to make this! This was a really fun design to make, like a cherry on top of my formal and dainty wedding gigs... I got to make something I really like and so fun!
