Last January 24-26 had been a blast. Phnom Penh Designers Week had just recently presented 3 days of fashion show with the theme: Reinvention of Tradition at The Plantation Hotel. as a fashion blogger, I was privileged to attend the 3 days of glitz and glamour. What did I witness? Read on.


It was an honor to have been invited in the fashion shows by one of the designers who is also a Filipino designer but based here in Phnom Penh, Don Protasio. The three day fashion show was participated by 12 designers. Read my previous post about it HERE.  I will be featuring each of the designers I witnessed during the event. Unfortunately, I was not able to attend the Day One due to conflicting schedule. However, I will be sharing with you the runways during Day Two and Day Three.

Here's the first installment. First designer is Armada.

“Armada” by Reynier Necesario Abello
“The concept of my collection is mainly based on the Spanish Armada. I was inspired by a painting of a Spanish captain, and my love for theater and drama: I see this concept to be an avenue for me to show and express my passion on that area and translate it into clothes.”

Feast your eyes on the photos.

Armada's collection here is truly high fashion. Not everyone can wear them but they are wearable in public. The black and white colors give out a rock and emo-like kind of vibe. I would love to wear any of the sets but I wouldn't dare wear the headress in public.
