Fashion Workshop

As promised, I'll share to you guys what happened during my first ever gig as a fashion speaker. It's not everyday that you get chosen to discuss about fashion and blogging in a workshop, so I'm really thankful to be given this wonderful chance. Surreal! *_* Anyway, I'll go na to the story! :)

Mediartrix, a university-wide multimedia organization at UST, had a whole day seminar/workshop last March 10, 2012. I was invited by Joy Rodriguez, a good friend of mine and one of Mediartrix's officers, to be a part of their afternoon workshop at Tan Yan Kee building.

Obviously, I do too much hand gestures whenever I explain something (same goes whenever I recite at school, haha). Thank God everything went well with my presentation! *_*

Sir Geo Esguerra, a freelance photographer and worked for magazines like Metro and Maven, gave a talk about photography after my discussion. He's just so natural and inspiring!

We were asked to do hands on styling and photography. I didn't have too much time to prepare for this activity so I just brought one of my favorite ensembles, my "Little Miss Carrots" look (which I blogged about here).

I styled Jay Pineda, a UST student and member of Mediartrix. Good thing we have the same body frame, my clothes fit her perfectly! Very Arnie ang peg, diba? :p

Geo shared his thoughts and skills about fashion photography. He also allowed some students to shoot Jay using their own cameras. Here are some of the amazing shots they did!

I love their shots and they're all so bongga, right? :) Now, I'll show you some photos with the team.

Thank you so much dearest Joy Rodriguez for everything!! You did great in hosting, by the way! :p Love you! I'll never forget this experience!

Thank you, also, to everyone who came to listen and I hope you guys learned something from me! I heard Mediartrix is planning to hold a fashion show on the 30th, so watch out for that! xx

Mediartrix worked for the following major productions at UST:
Miss Saigon, Bola Ni Totoy, Deja Vukol, Mamma Mia, Across the Universe
