MANILA, Philippines – Byzantine opulence met sleek modernity at the Albert Andrada show at Philippine Fashion Week Holiday 2013 last May 26.
Luxurious purple in sheer fabrics and metallic hues were used for sleek officewear, cocktail dresses and coats. Gowns in light fabric were offset by clean geometric cut-outs and structured collars, while lace capes made a sweeping fashion statement on the runway floor.
Gold and silver details jumped out from suits and gowns even as an emperor-worthy crown stole the show.
