Mahal Style

Oh how I love raining days sometimes.. it gives me a chance to blog...
I want to show some love and respect to "Mahal Style"... Rochelle and Minh Huynh are just amazing at it's best!!!! Make up and Styling of these photos are done by Rochelle Huynh. She does amazing work... everything is to perfection, not over the top, but just right.
Minh Huynh is a true genius, and a underrated photographer. I am so lucky that I have an opportunity in working with these two for my upcoming short film and near photo shoots.
Their work reminds me of real high fashion magazines, like Bazaar, and Vogue.
It's very refreshing to see, since it seems like nowadays everyone is stuck on the NYLON, and VICE magazine looks... the dirty nu-wave outfits.. Don't get me wrong, I love Nylon and Vice to but ideally I'm a fan of minimalistic darling pieces, that you can wear over and over again. So you don't have to look back 6 years later and think, why the hell did I wear that!!!

Philippines Fashion = Total Inspiration

Filipino Fashion is so under rated it's not even funny. These photos are taken from some locals in Manila, Philippines. Styled by local residents, it's amazing what they can do under some harsh weather circumstances.

Eyes Open or Closed, Just Dream

It's 2010 ... Dive in to the land of Bazar

Diane von Furstenberg
Zac Posen
Alexander McQueen

It's 2010 and everyone is pretty much on the same page... "Lets hope 2010 is much better than 2009!" (In fashion that is) This year I have dedicated myself fully to FASHION. With new opportunity rising for me, I have to make sure I am prepared for all life's hits, by staying on top of updated fashion trends, and keeping M. Dot's Collection Five Steps ahead of the game. As a designer and seamstress its tough to get ahead of the game, but I looked outside the box, presenting new ideas and mind blowing fabrics. My Spring 2010 collection "Futuristic Safari" has something for every fashion lover out there, be it high- voltage patterns, streamlined minimalism, and over-the- top futuristic romanticism. My collection will provide realistic comfortable garments as well as inspirational looks, when making your spring shopping list.

In the mean time however, my inspiration comes from Nouveau Tribal Prints. Some of my favorite Designers 2010 collection showcase this beautifully from Diane von Furstenberg, Versace, Alexander McQueen, and Zac Posen
