The muses thru the lens of Devi de Veyra

I am fortunate enough to count Devi as one of my friends. I was looking thru pictures she's done and was amazed at how beautiful she made her subjects. She came by before Prive and took these wonderful shots of some of my muses and the jewellery they wore..










and Dorothy

Thank you so much Devi! We thoroughly enjoyed the experience!

Hongkong International Jewellery Fair

Last September, I joined the HK Jewellery and Watch Fair as a first time exhibitor.

Already Asia's biggest show of its kind, the Sept HK Jewellery and Gem Fair took its leadership further by becoming the world's biggest jewellery fair in terms of number of exhibitors. The fair featured over 3,000 exhibitors! You can imagine how daunting it was for a newbie like me. Still it was very exciting and I hope that my jewellery reaches a broader international audience.

I debuted my sliders and stingrays which was quite successful due to the orders I've received plus the amount of other exhibitors trying to take pics of our products. As they say, imitation is the most annoying form of flattery.

My sister Candy and Ginny helped me out. We had peking duck almost every night!

our booth

I'm happy to say that my collection appeals tremendously to Europeans and Indians.
I am definitely showing again next September!

Dennis Lustico Fashion Show

I am bowled over by Dennis' first solo show!! The creations were a mixture of heavenly and frothy to earthy and dramatic. If I only had a gajillion dollars (pound sterling na lang pls) I would buy each and every one. I would buy a body to wear it as well..
Here are some excerpts from the show.

for some reason, this works really well

loved the mesh net top and the shoes! They were made especially for the show.

look at the black lace detail.. *sigh*

Ria Bolivar the model + Dennis Lustico the couturier + Jul Dizon for the jewellery= match made in heaven.

This top is calling my name, too bad I didn't get to take a pic of the back detail..

Congratulations Dennis for a wonderful and superb show!

on another note, thanks Rajo ( for the sweet compliment!

HSBC forum

I was invited yesterday by Hongkong Shanghai Bank to share my experiences as an exporter. I was quite nervous since no 1. I am a newbie and no 2. I was sharing the panel with Anton Huang of SSI (the local distributor for all things luxe: Hermes, Prada you name it) as well as Mr. Hiro Asandas who is a big time exporter.( he holds the licensing for all the linens of Disney as well as the brand Canadian)

It was held at the delightful Sala restaurant. We were asked questions such as how globalization affects our business (my answer: jewellery has always been a global business- diamonds from Africa, rubies from Myanmar, emeralds from Cambodia, need I say more) and plans for the future.

It was a great experience for me and I am glad I was there to listen to these pros talk.Mr. Asandas was a witty natural story teller and Anton was eloquent and charming.

Thank you HSBC!

All smiles
Mr. Junie Veloso of HSBC, Mr. Hiro Asandas, me and Anton Huang
