|Pre-show, people settled in on benches that allotted a tiny square for each butt (seriously, we were like sardines on those seats!)|
Proenza is a much buzzed about brand and now I know why. Their prints are genius! Moving forward from their pre-fall collection, the most of the pieces are rendered in prints that take their cue from Native-American patterns, their take on the ikat and tribal trend that was such a hit a few seasons back. Frankly, it reminds me of our native banig and Ifugao costumes, but in a good way. Our Igorots are creative geniuses in their own right.

My favorites would have to be the embroidered dresses and tops. Like eyelet but the darker palette and geometric openings make them more glam than granny. And I love the glazed silk jacquard dresses. They look like laminated banig tailored into sleek, structured dresses, but oh so sexy!

I'll let the photos speak for themselves. They might be blurry ( sorry, I only have a point-and-shoot that's ready to give up on me!) but that doesn't detract from the beauty of the collection.
