'Monks in Riot on the runway by Don Protasio during
the Phnom Penh Designers Week Fashion Show at The Plantation Hotel.

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.

“Monks In Riot” by Don Protasio
“My spring/summer 2014 collection is called ‘Monks In Riot’, inspired by a photograph I saw. It’s an exercise in layering tailored and draped clothing, sometimes independent of each other, and in some pieces fused together into one, often using cold dyeing treatments. I have always been fascinated with clothing styles that evoke a darker sensibility.”

Hearing the collection named 'Monks in Riot' to me sounds like a picture of peaceful monks in rebellion and chaos. Black and gray color dominating the collection is like the dark side of us revealing. The cuts and pieces of each set maybe appear difficult and unusual to wear for the common people but if you want your alter ego revealed, why not dare put on this collection. The overall layers when worn maybe overwhelming but it may become wearable and stylish at the same time if you take a piece and add up to your casual wear.
