from dusk 'till dawn

from dusk 'till dawn
fold canela x melanie lim's fashion editorial final project for basic fashion styling under ms marina benipayo, school of fashion and the arts
march 2010
styling and make-up:
melanie lim
concept, photography and art direction:
fold canela
iya consengco and bianca lim

for our styling class's finals presentation, our professor, renowned supermodel marina benipayo, invited patrick ty, mega magazine's then fashion editor, to critique our works. famous fashion stylist luis espiritu also dropped by and joined them. as they were going around our room and looking at the class's projects, mel and i were praying that they don't say anything bad about our project, that hopefully they would at least appreciate what we came up with. while they were looking at our project, we both noticed that they were all whispering to each other and looked at our project the longest. eventually, we had to say a little something about our project and listen to what they had to say. i found myself buckling, trying to find the right words to explain our concept, which is something i didn't really prepare for. we were really nervous that the judges won't get our concept. but lo and behold, patrick ty and luis espiritu commended us for a very professional looking project. all three even said that our editorial looked as if it was really shot for mega magazine and that it was certainly ready to be published. they liked the trend we presented (shiny neutrals), the models we got and the shots we used for the editorial. awesome!
