Canon Pro Night: Fashion Revolution

We all know Canon as a trusted brand for all kinds of imaging and optical products.  From cameras to camcorders to printers, Canon has provided the world all the hardware it needs to document every aspect of our lives. Why, it has even made me look like a professional photographer on social media, thanks in large part to the high quality photos my Canon camera produces.

Last week, I was reminded once more why I love Canon.

Last October 2, at the SM Aura Samsung Hall, Canon users and fans were treated to a night of mini crash courses and hands on sessions on photography and lighting! The Canon Pro Night: Fashion Revolution, held in cooperation with Digital Photographer Philippines, included different activities and workshops for those who want to learn from the Canon Crusaders of Light such as a live shoot with a model, the Advertising Beauty Shot workshop by Jun De Leon, and a session with portrait photographer, Ibarra Deri, who shared his expertise in lighting and portraiture.

The highlight of the event was the Fashion Shootout between Wesley Villarica and Sara Black! 

They even had a product auction where those who participated in the event got a chance to purchase amazing Canon products at much, much lower prices! 

I must say it was definitely a learning experience for everyone who was there especially myself and also Team Girl About Town's resident photographer,  Nicco. Thanks for all the awesome tips and tricks of the trade we got from some of the country's top lensmen!

Thank you Canon Philippines for hosting such a worthwhile and productive event!

Be All the Rage in RAGA

Feminine, free-spirited, chic and stylish -
and yes, I'm talking about today's look on the blog featuring this lovely dress from RAGA of LA!
What I love most about the dress? Why the print and the cut-out shoulders, of course!

I am completely enamored with the fashion brand! Who else can better describe the soul of RAGA but the very people behind the brand:
"Rooted in a vintage spirit, with wings for a hopeful future!" 
Don't you just love it? I do!

Based in Southern California, RAGA is a young brand founded in 2012 by designer Krishan Chaudry and her sons.
The word Raga we are told is Sanskrit for both melody and color. Quite apt, I should say, for their clothes are at once soft and playful, a happy combination of eastern and western touches, and a play on the hip and the traditional.

But even their designs  guaranteed to ignite the inner Bohemian spirit in you can be versatile and can be easily transformed with bright pink stilettos and matching pink bag for a more modern urban vibe.

Drop Red Gorgeous

Over the past two weeks, I've sat through a couple of fashion shows that saw top brands unveiling their Fall/Winter collections. A vintage style that has caught my eye as it stages a strong resurgence is the drop-waist dress, first popularized in the 1920s when glamour girls strutted around wearing this style in soft silk fabrics with long pearl necklaces and headdresses and and high heels. It reappeared in the 1960s much, much shorter, looking more sporty chic and great for wearing during the daytime! It made another comeback in the 1980s when no less than Princess Diana made it fashionable to wear the style in midi-length just covering the calves.

This one from MOSSIMO is all business with a just above-the-knee length, perfect for looking smart and in control for those all-important, high-powered meetings. You'll look like a winner and all set to close the deal with the striking deep red color, and trendy exposed front pocket and back zippers.

Best of all, as with all dresses in this style, it is flattering on most figures, gives the appearance of a longer torso, which makes you look taller than you are! Now, that's a winner in any book, don't you think so?

Bag and earrings, CHANEL
Heels, ALDO
