I got a call a week before that Tribe of Net 25 is interested to feature me and Versaheel on their show. I was shookt!
Things have been really wonderful for me ever since I appeared in News5 of TV5 and Pambansang Almusal of Net 25.
I got a lot of messages and inquiries. The attention was something I was hopeful, but not expecting.
I mean, who am I anyway. I’m just a girl who loves shoes very much.
Anyway, I was frantic to find the perfect look for this interview since this is going to be shown on primetime. Plus, I was given some days to prepare.
Ms. Leyah Ortiz of Beauty Talks by Leyah was my hair and makeup artist that day. She was wonderful! It was the first time we worked together, and I was really swept-away on how she made me look like a mermaid.
I mean, look at the hair! 😀
The shoot locations were set to be at our house, at the factory and Shoe Museum.
The crew of Tribe went to our residence at around 2PM. It was overwhelming honestly. Before I knew it, they started filming the shoes and took the liberty to set the lights and the cameras.
I was quite nervous at first because I don’t want to pain the crew with a lot of takes. I had to muster all the confidence and spontaneity in me, to do away with unnecessary cuts and second takes.
The lights added more drama to the whole set up but wasn’t helpful enough in keeping me fresh. My face was sweating with all that heat! Hehe 😀
Our next location was the factory. I was excited to go there because it is going to be my first time to see the new collection too. Some were already formed, while others still needed more work. The patterns were beautiful as well! 😀
I still can’t believe these shoes are going to Tokyo next month! 🙂
You don’t know how much I want to share these new designs with you merfriends, but I guess we all have to wait after the fashion show! 🙂
My collaboration with Marco Not Polo is launching my shoe designing career to greater heights, and I am so humbled by the trust of Marco Not Polo and the opportunity given to me by Tribe.
We weren’t able to go to the shoe museum anymore, well maybe on the next Versaheel TV feature? Haha 🙂
Catch everything on September 24, Sunday in Tribe at Net 25 at 5PM! 😀
See youuuuuuuu! ❤
