High Life Magazine’s Fashion x Art Watch

Behind-the-scenes of the latest fashion editorial for High Life Magazine featuring some of our country’s best artists and pairing their works with our talented Filipino fashion designers.


Our wonderful and gorgeous models, getting ready and internalizing their many roles and looks for this shoot…


Watch in horror of this crown made of nails by artist, Marionne Contreras. It was actually nerve-wrecking putting on the headpiece and making sure it would not fall through, therefore injuring my model! No fashion victims allowed please!


But we did it! And it made such a fierce opening spread paired with Jose Joya’s “Dimensions of Fear”, don’t you think?



Spreading the love of art and fashion with these other gorgeous spreads…

What I love about this issue is the fusion of fashion and art and how we weren’t mimicking existing paintings but rather complimenting them in terms of color or style. I did want to have an off-beat feel when it came to the styling, and at the same time, not allow the fashion to be overpowering. The art works and the models should be able to enhance each other and not compete for attention.
