A workshop that inspired me even more to create another fashion design creation like the one below:
That would definitely describe the experience I had during the Fashion Illustration workshop of Ms. Tin Iglesias sponsored by Rio Mints at Thaipan Restaurant last November 24, 2012. It was a spectacular afternoon of colors, lines, food and lots of fun. This was the first fashion illustration workshop I have attended and I must say that never have I enjoyed an occasion as much as I have enjoyed this workshop wherein I barely know the attendees.
The workshop was even made more fun by the perfect ambiance of the restaurant which is located at Tomas Morato in Quezon City. The interiors are just so cozy with all the soft, mellow light from the hanging lamps and of course, how could I forget the delicious Thai meals served while we were drawing. Although it was not my first time to taste Thai cuisine, I must say that it never fails to please my appetite. Thus, if I am to rank the ambiance and the food, I must say that I will give it a perfect score of 5, 5 being the highest and 1 being the lowest. The place is just suitable for any small group meetings as the limited space makes it more convenient and cozy for the attendees to socialize and acquaint with one another.
The workshop started with a short introduction of the speaker and host, Ms. Tin Iglesias. She is a graduating BS Clothing Industry student at the University of the Philippines, Diliman. But she has already been invited to numerous fashion events and been featured in several fashion magazines both local and abroad. She has also received several fashion awards and been making a lot of fashion designs for clothing companies here and internationally.
After the introduction, Ms. Tin showed us a selected few of her art works. And here they are, lifted from her website (tiniglesias.com):
Truly talented – I know that is what you are going to say upon seeing her art works. And at such a young age, I could not help but admire her and admit that she is going to make a big name and be among the best in the fashion industry. Afterwards, we were then given the chance to create our own fashion illustration after learning the basics of figure drawing and portrait sketching.
All I can say afterwards is this – SUPERB! I am looking forward to yet another Fashion Illustration/Fashion Designing workshop with her. Never thought that fashion can be made as exciting as this. And the best part is, I got to meet other fashion enthusiasts who are passionate in bringing today’s fashion to a whole new different level. 😀
Thank you Rio Mints, Ms. Tin Iglesias, to my fellow fashion aficionados/artists and of course, to my ever beautiful friend and herself a fashion icon, Jeai, for this wonderful opportunity. Thanks to Thaipan Restaurant for the delicious Thai cuisine as well. 🙂
Until the next fabulous fashion event my fellow fashionistas!
We got freebies too! 😉
