ELLEN Cuadra decided to give up her job in the private sector more than year ago to open her fashion boutique named Collar & Lace located at L’Sea building, beside L’Fisher Hotel.
Her love for the arts and fashion lead her in this kind of business. Ellen was a model in her younger days and had joined beauty pageants in her prime.
She regularly travels abroad for pleasure and business, where 95 percent of her Ready-to Wear (RTW) collections come.
Ellen named her boutique Collar & Lace for it is a part of fashion pattern; her collars are for the gents and laces are for the ladies.
It sells chic and trendy casual and summer wear for both genders and classy semi-formal wears for ladies. It also sells classic bags, shoes and fashionable jewelries.
Ellen is a generous lady; when I approached her if she can dress up my two good-looking and stunning models, Snookii Thiel and John Ismael Amar, she immediately said yes.
So I called up my good friend fashion designer/makeup artist Chino Ledesma Christophers if he can do the makeup of my modes in the photoshoot.
This colorful fashion shoot is dedicated to Summer Season. Although the pictorial was made under the heat of the summer sun, it was still fun. My special thanks to two budding photographers Ryan Castillon and Marc Darrel “Dhurt” Espina who helped in the photoshoot.
Have your shopping with style at Collar & Lace boutique.
