Veronica De Castro walking the runway of Arnold Galang for Philippine Fashion Week.
Beautiful things sprung out from Arnold’s love for peace. As strong as his beliefs, the I am For Peace collection celebrated the gardens of spring. It did not entirely speak of its literal meaning though. The deal that he chose for this is the post era of the world without conflict. Exquisite prints of flowers, leaves and bright colors are transformed into poetic clothing for the “my fair lady”. Some pieces paid homage to a visual painting, worn with black and white stripes. Others paired with the same colorful material resembled the birds of paradise. With color-coded sandals stomping the runway, it is a fact that he’s in favor of the serenity in walking comfortably. Talk about a big hooray for the summer high heel time-out.
For the last two pieces, Cassandra Laforteza strutted down in a black swimsuit with shredded blazer reminding us of a black vulture. It was followed by a similar design, but now in a form of a clean white dress as worn by Eriko Malabanan. The finale dress seemed to be a symbolism of his advocacy to his audience. True enough, he explained his creativity and idealism without a blur.
