Bicol Fashion Week Wave 2

Bicol Fashion Week has come a long way and is now happy to announce its Wave 2 which will be this September 5 to 9, 2013 to be held in Naga and Legaspi.  The event aims to promote the industry of fashion in the Bicol region by introducing different styles and trends of the present and showcasing the creations of world class local designers that has paved the fashion industry.
The event will have a fashion bizarre, fashion party, inauguration of the newly established Association of Bicolano models and fashion shows featuring Bicolano designers and four of Manila’s best designers namely Simon Ariel Vasquez, Chris Jasler, Zandra Lim-Emasa and Xernan Orticio.

As part of this event—no, not as a model (not gifted with height lol) but as part of the team of Bicol fashion bloggers who will help in disseminating the event to our readers (yes you!)—each of us is tasked to feature one of the designers who will take part in the Bicol Fashion Week and with this, I chose Chris Jasler.

Chris Jasler, according to The Cartel, is the creative director and founder of Jail Jeans. He was a former runway model who pursued living his dream of providing the world with great fashion translated in denim wear. His creations are nothing short of a spectacle and each piece is a physical manifestation of his vision. Jail Jeans set the runway ablaze with designs reminiscent of the brave visions of fashion mavericks like Alexander McQueen and John Galliano.

The brand is the embodiment of both edgy and luxury denim—cut for the non-conformists that express their individuality through the clothes they wear. Jail Jeans’ recent showing in New York, Seattle and Vancouver earned it a strong following and fans in North America, which include Hollywood celebrities like Apl.De.Ap of The Black Eyed Peas.

Honesty, I am quite new in the fashion world. I am still learning about the local designers here in the Philippines with world class creativity yet I was drawn to Chris Jasler because of his edgy designs. I didn’t know that denim can look this good. He truly revolutionized the jeans industry.

His visions are clear and one of a kind. He creates edgy and futuristic pieces one can dream of wearing. I for sure would want to wear one of his creations! My style as you have noticed leans toward edgy. Oh how I wish to have one of those awesome pants!

            I’ll surely look forward seeing his collection at the Bicol Fashion Week this September! I encourage you guys to watch too! Don’t miss this chance to see the latest trends this year. Hope to see you there! ^_^
