Escalating to gigantic proportions for The Ramp show are tons and tons of shoes which were all provided for. I love it because fashion shows rarely provide the shoes (considered sold when damaged) and this event is one of those rare occasion. A look can never be complete without the proper pair of shoes. Bold brights ruled each step brightening up any ensemble with their most attractive designs. Wedges and platforms paraded the runway with so much towering style, fashion in Manila has never stood so tall. These shoestoppers brings you a step ahead from the pack and makes you a standout in a crowd. What's even great about them is that the comfort they bring, so need to worry about suffering in style. Even the men's shoes by Mundo were quite brave in the most striking colors and prints.

Accessories are modern style essentials that complete a look. Backstage Mrs. Paras had a table filled with stellar-like accessories all under her label-Cosmopolitan. Trendy, luxe inspired in the most precious tones, these pieces were definitely making a statement. Don't be fooled by how it looks, these style forward pieces are cheap chic one-of-a-kind must-buys that's so worth it. I have always admired Mrs. Paras for being a dedicated fashion follower from the way she dresses up to how she manages her business. I met her way back when she would consign with Anthology ( A fashion store I used to be part of as a co-owner with industry stylists Noel Manapat, Chechel Joson and Millet Arzaga) and could evidently see her keen eye for fashion and distinct sense of style. Her dedication and passion for the fashion business is quite admirable--always in search for the next big thing. Even her children have picked up her good business sense. One of the them is considered one of the most promising and talented among the young designers--John Paras--who's designs have appeared on top fashion glossies or worn by celebrities. No doubt that her brand is doing well, after all passion equates to success.
