When I grow up I want to be an astronaut.
With my bayong on my back, I am packed.
In this neo-primitive space age of ancient aliens, I am an astro - not.
Lunar tic toc, tic toc.
The fabric of spacetime is textured like those orbs.
Hand-stitched embroidery and applique, machine quilted and patch worked.
Time travel only takes reflection.
In neoprene and Scotchlite flare.
I manifest meditation.
Creating this, my vision quest.
The Professional Collection for 2015 is about notions of adulthood from generations past compared to those of today.
This translates to fashion as conceptual workwear.
After a 13-year hiatus, we created as we had, on location in Manila, Philippines.
From the modern and literally clean representation of the Filipino home (in our last film, Deep Conditioning), we go to this historical ruin, Kasa Boix.
It is soon to be restored as a community center/creative space, returning our heritage today.
