Filipina designer Sari Lazaro is set to make waves in Paris as she brings her bespoke creations to the 100-meter floating runway over the River Seine on January 26.
The rising designer will represent the Philippines in Jessica Minh Anh’s J Winter Fashion Show 2017. Minh Anh is known worldwide for producing fashion shows in the world’s most extraordinary catwalks—at the Eiffel Tower, on the sundeck of a cruise ship and over the Grand Canyon, among others—on which she struts as well.
Lazaro, together with other innovative designers from Europe, Asia and America were chosen by Minh Anh to showcase their creations on the Seine’s giant glass boat—while the ship is cruising.
With the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame and the Louvre as her backdrop, the Instituto Marangoni-educated Pinay designer is set to stir up romance with sophistication through her gowns and dresses that flatter the female silhouette. Using delicate lace, luxurious fabrics and shimmering details, her set is envisioned to look like a royal wedding in an enchanted garden.
Filipinos will certainly be proud of this feat. James Younghusband, Lazaro’s boyfriend, sure does.
