Remember my previous post on the Rajo for Parisian and Milanos Collection? Well, here’s my follow up post. :)
I was fortunate enough to be invited to the Rajo for Parisian and Milanos Grand Launch a few weeks back (Thank you Rai!). *Scolds self for blogging about the highly successful event only now. hoho.
Anyway, let me take you to the Japanese Wonderland Rajo Laurel created with his stunning pieces.
One of my favorite looks from the show, a modern take on the kimono.
Don’t you just love the brocade wedges? They’re very pretty close up too!
By 8pm, the function room was already full of Rajo fans eager to see what he has in store for Parisian and Milanos. We were served hors d’oeuvres, petit fours, basically, bite sized food by Bizu catering. The food was soooo good. haha I actually wasn’t able to eat dinner at home, so I took advantage of all the free food I could get. Michael was actually amused at how much I ate. He was supportive anyway, kahit nakakahiya na ko. LOL A mobile bar was also present at the event, Swizzle if I remember correctly, so even if the program started a bit late, guests could move around, mingle, eat, drink, and get into the groove with DJ Callum’s beats.

I was actually right at the edge of the runway, so I saw everything up close, twas a spectacular show indeed. In the photo above, a short dance number to keep the mood going. :)
And, the man of the hour, Rajo Laurel himself!
To give all the guests the chance to own a pair before the shoes are made available in SM dept. stores, Rajo opened another showroom, complete with salesladies, displays, and cash registers, so everyone present can own a pair right then and there!
Spotted a lot of bloggers/personalities present so I took a few photos with them.
With the great Divine Lee!
I just had to take a photo with these guys because theit outfits are sooo awesome. (with Jujin Samonte and friends)
DJ Callum in the house!
