Let's take a look at the dresses and their corresponding designers!
My personal favorite is the Boss of Paradise and the Peplum. Know that these comes in different colors too!
What made these ladies win was because they captured the essence of what an Ensembles woman embodies. “One who is confident, knows the trend and can carry it well. She can stand on her own and can stand out at the same time”, as described by Mymy.
I personally feel like I don't look good in red and I'm glad they have this peplum dress in teal.
This was designed by Pamela. She's the only one who didn’t take up a design course. When she was asked if she had a hard time coming up with a concept, She answered "Not quite. I just thought of a concept that would fit a stylish woman in a corporate world and something that is understated yet elegant and would add a stylish twist to a normal office outfit.”
Surely, all the hard work and effort these designers have put into their creations were all born from an inspiration. For Regina, it took a sentimental purpose for her to get that creative spark. What was her inspiration? “My daughter who passed away. Her name is Iona, which is why Iolana is the name of my entry”, she said.
When it comes to the obstacles they encountered, meeting the deadline was a common problem. “It just so happened that I had other commitments to do at that time, that’s why I ended up submitting the garments on the very last day of submission”, answered April.
Also, they got to play out one of the key aspects of Ensembles, which is versatility. “The dress can be worn from day to night. Just put on a blazer for work matched with stunning stilettos then take the blazer off for night outs”, Michelle said, pertaining to her dress.
The winning creations are to be released as part of the Spring 2013 Collection of Ensembles and is scheduled to hit the stores nationwide this February 2013.
