Penthouse Designer in Focus: MARY TY

8:10 PM

Last Wednesday ushered in another installment of the Penthouse Fashion Series, and as previously promised, you know me and my lovely cohorts were there! It proved to be another impressive fusion of r n' b, a great designer, and Cebu's best dressed fashionizers as only The Penthouse can provide. I am definitely looking forward to this week's designer, and of course, what everybody will be wearing as well.:)

The Penthouse gave rise to the charming Mary Ty and her Very Mary collection. The set definitely embodied its namesake as the designer dug deep down her roots and gave the fashionistas and partyphiles an in-depth smorgasbord of culture and colour, the very things that Mary apparently adheres to in her design aesthetics.

Keeping her silhouettes to a minimum and sticking to rich earth tones like ochre, saffron, tangerine and deep browns, the designer clearly highlighted the decadence and the rich colors of the Orient. The designer knows what she does best and sticks to it, carrying uniform tones and shapes with so much flair.

Mary's collection is as timeless as it is being exquisite, and they will remain relevant in any fashionista's wardrobe now, or even ten to twenty years from now. Kudos to the designer for a collection that rings true to her personal style and colorful je ne sais quoi.

Much can definitely be said about Mary Ty's budding career as a young designer, and I'm sure they're all most definitely accolades and acclaims. I can't wait to see what this stylista has in store for her next outings. Kudos as well to Dino Lloren for meeting expectations of a great show, plus much more.
