She said she wants a different kind of Filipiniana.
I said - "yehey!!!"

and this is what we came up with :
love the entourage gowns too! made by Rosalyn Lagdameo

I'm a huge fan of Ginny's dad, so imagine my "kilig" when he tapped me on the shoulder and said - "good job... good job" I wanted to hug him - "tenchu dad!" ahahahah! :-)

Kumusta from Canada! Upon "Google-ing" "Filipiniana gown. I came across a tiny picture of Ginny's gown. It took me two nights to find out it was created by you. I found your blog and read it in one sitting. I just couldn't get enough. This dress is an exquisite masterpiece (all of them really are, but this one speaks to me. The modern yet traditional elements marry so well, the meticulous details in the beadwork, the use of traditional fabric, the versatility, I could go on and on). I'm a HUGE fan and am truly inspired to bring back Pinoy fashion to Canada in a totally elegant and modern way that you have. I hope to see you surpass Vera Wang one day and show the world that Filipinos are great couturiers too! You are IMHO thee best in Wedding Couture. Much Love, Jerilynne (jL)
