Finally making his long-anticipated debut at the prestigious Philippine Fashion Week this season, fashion designer Pat Santos proudly unveils his Holiday 2014 collection, titled Orientidental.
In a grand Philippine Fashion presentation held at the SMX Convention Center Hall 3, Santos paraded his first-ever collection for Philippine Fashion Week.
Indulging his penchant for enhancing the natural seductiveness of the female physique, Santos focuses on the use of lace, particularly with the organdy-cotton base lace material that fits like a dream. Subtly provocative, most of the dresses make use of a beige lining to mimic the skin’s color, while the lace overlay in lilac, ice blue-gray, black, and gold provides vivid color variations perfect for evenings out.
Each design from Santos’ 10-piece repertoire demonstrates both the traditional and modern aesthetic of the East and the West “Orientidental is an amalgamation of Asian and European design concepts, particularly the Asian culture’s preference for the simple and streamlined, but interpreted in European fashion language, which implies a more daring, fashion-forward approach to design,” explained Santos.
With his trademark luxe embellishments of sequins and Swarovski crystals, Santos adorns every creation in exquisite beadwork, a style for which he has become well-known. Finally, the he adds an unexpected, yet refreshing finishing touch to each piece: the classic belt, which he uses as this season’s must-have accessory, elegantly and glamorously contouring the woman’s shape.
Santos remarked, “One thing I’ve learned about myself as a designer is that I have a natural inclination to want to flaunt the Filipina’s natural beauty through my creations. So with this collection, I designed with the strong, smart, and sophisticated female in mind—I suppose in a sense it’s also about unleashing the beauty that’s within.”
