In celebration of its 75th year in the retail business, National Bookstore collaborated with seven Filipino design influencers including myself. The result were seven collections of limited edition stationery, accessories, and gift items launched under the campaign Inspire with Passion. Among the talents that joined me were Amina Aranaz-Alunan, Cat Arambulo-Antonio, Cecile Van Straten, Patty Eustaquio, Rajo Laurel, and Rissa Mananquil-Trillo.
“Their unique styles and design philosophies are reflected in each of their lines,” says National Book Store managing director Xandra Ramos-Padilla. “These limited edition items can be gifted to anyone’s family, friends, and loved ones, so that everyone can receive and be inspired by the gift of passion.”
As I wrote in my previous post, I was inspired by “my tropical life”. For the DAPHNE® set, we came up with three prints all reflecting the tropical blooms and textures in and around my home.
I wore a K&Company dress from the current Holiday 2017 collection.
