It’s safe to assume that fashion is a foreign concept for perpetual frumps like me. I’d pick comfort over couture any day. But since I support my friends’ endeavors (and free booze), there I was at Prive last Thursday to attend the launch of Gemini, the latest collaboration by Glasnost and Alati.
Inspired by the mythology of Castor and Pollux, this summer collection represents the two sides of every woman, namely her “well-mannered graces and untempered passions”. These traits are present in every female, and while they are polar opposites, they are not mutually exclusive.
And these are the very traits that the brands’ respective owners, Stacy Rodriguez and Gabbie Tatad, sought to bring out in their collaboration – each item reflective of this synergy.
Adding an extra touch of flair to the proceedings was this visually-arresting short film produced by the designers and OVERMIND Creative Consulting. It features models Pauline Prieto and Helena Belmonte wearing the creations:
The event also served as an instant reunion with my MDAFI colleagues and a bunch of other friends I haven’t seen in a while. I can’t remember the last time I had that much fun with these people:
Paulie (who did the awesome cinematography) along with former child wonder, Sheena.
Ivan whipping his Elvis hair back and forth.
Joey A all the Way!
Gabbie possessed by Adele.
Make-up artist and the night’s scene-stealer, Carla Avancena
The DJ wasn’t the only one who got her falling love again. 😉

Congratulations to everyone involved in this fab event!
