In 2007, I started Style Anywhere. It was not planned to keep this up, until now. But, there is something about it that makes me carry on – I consider it as an avenue for me to share what I am most interested with; fashion and fashion photography.
Jump to 2012, a special year for me. I was able to cover fashion week from Milan, Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin and New York. At times when I reminisce, I still get ecstatic. Who will not be? Being in a venue with the people I look up to; all glued staring at beautiful clothes in a great Dolce & Gabbana show was just surreal. It was one of those cloud nine moments!
It is also my personal feat, as I am able to produce and shot more fashion stories – inspired by religion, life stories, sensuality, drama and cinema - for several print and online magazines. You see, there is something beautiful and rewarding in materializing a plot through creative direction, photography and fashion. When I start looking at the output and I feel I was able to achieve what the company – editors, writers, designers, stylists, hair and make-up artists, models and fashion comrades – aimed for, then it is an “Oh, wow!” emotion.
I believe that while fashion designers find joy in their collections – pieces of garments -, fashion photographers find it in stories – series of photos. I am grateful to everyone whom I worked with.
Features and interviews in 2012, including that with Marie Claire Italia, Female Singapore, Philippine Daily Inquirer to name a few, are very encouraging. It gives me more the dynamism and inspiration to continue. It is a pat on the back. Thank you.
There is an anticipation in 2013. Some changes with the website will take place. I will be adding more features including interviews of creative people and will be sharing more personal experiences in my journey. I hope to inspire you more, not just with visuals but with features and stories of creative geniuses. Hold on.
Thank you for the support and I look forward to seeing you again in 2013. Happy New Year, everyone. Cheers!
