See you on the next Kawaii in Manila Convention! <3

Kawaii In Manila 2 (Part 1)

Kawaii-7

After months of planning and daydreaming, Kawaii In Manila 2 was brought to life last September 6 2014. A Convention for all Kawaii stuff and Kawaii loving people of all ages.

I want to thank Kuya Eric (Ate Kaila’s brother / Inverstor for KIM 2/KPH) for making our dreams turn into reality. ♥ #kuyangbayan

☆*:.。. o(≧▽≦)o .。.:*☆

What is Kawaii for me? Kawaii is not just about the cute stuff, it’s about something that once you see it, It makes you happy and for me,Kawaii is a lifetsyle, it is where you can express yourself, where you dont need to think of what others may say. You can grow as a person and make your dreams come true. For me, I’m on my way to achieving my dreams by being living a Kawaii lifestyle. Kawaii is all about happiness , being happy in your own simple ways. Well, I’m not good in saying/explaining things. hahaha. I hope you understand it haha lol.

☆*・゜゚・*\(^O^)/*・゜゚・*☆

Anyway, it was a dream come true for the whole team, for me, and It was heart warming that we expected only 500  attendees but it turned out that we had a 1500 attendees that day. So much feels and happiness. We cant contain our emotions for the warm response from everyone.

I was assigned to be the Fashion Show Director for the event, and I also have a collection to show to everyone,I am one of the designers that will showcase Japanese inspired collections :) ( Me so Lucky! <3 ) so mostly I was inside the dressing room / backstage the whole event. I was assigned for the all the Fashion Show Plans and everything / everyone inside the dressing room, It was fun / tiring / happy experience. I met so many people, made friends and admired some. haha. ლ(́◉◞౪◟◉‵ლ)

Ⓗⓐⓟⓟⓨ❤ヾ(◍’౪`◍)ノ゙

Here are my babies :) My Dolly Kaye babies <3 My collection was inspired from the playful style of Pastel Kei /Fairy kei Fashion in Japan <3 Accessories are from Whimsicute! ♥

Pastel Kei / Fairy Kei – A more sweet lolita, decora blend, with a hint of 80’s. It uses mostly bright pastel colors (like lavender, baby blue, light pink, mint green, pale yellow, etc.) – (Wikipedia)

Let me introduce to you my pretty models/friends <3 from Left to Right ♥ Say Hi to Ghey, Gene, Oh that’s me haha , My BFF Wynona (My baby unicorn), Geneva and Ate Chay <3

They looked so kawaii and I’m very happy that they liked it! No fittings for us so I was kinda scared that it might not fit them properly, but it did! Yay!♥

Here’s the description for my collection: :D I called it Pastel Play. haha

” Debuting in a kawaii fashion show is a dream come true for DollyKaye, that’s why each piece in her “Pastel Play” collection has dreams and sparkles weaved in every fluff and ruffle. These playful pastel-kei inspired pieces reflect the designer’s bright and fun outlook towards her dreams and life in general. Let’s play! “

And then my dream of having my collection featured on the runway, came true. ♥
