REG­U­LAR AC­TIV­I­TIES I med­i­tate as soon as I wake up and have been do­ing this since I was about 5 years old. On a reg­u­lar day I draw, work on my jew­elry, and meet po­ten­tial and ex­ist­ing clients. I love to so­cial­ize so my evenings are usu­ally spent at events or meet­ing up with my friends. I read vo­ra­ciously and travel ex­ten­sively. I can’t live with­out do­ing sports—at the mo­ment I’m do­ing yoga and start­ing mar­tial arts again soon. I am in love with learn­ing, so it’s not rare to find me in classes and work­shops. On the side I teach mind and spirit con­cepts such as hyp­no­sis, Theta heal­ing, and life coach­ing. CRE­ATIVE IN­SPI­RA­TIONS Lit­er­ally ev­ery­thing, but en­er­gies that go be­yond the phys­i­cal most of all. DE­SCRIBE YOUR PER­SONAL STYLE It de­pends on my mood. FA­VORITE BRANDS Lo­cally I’m a huge fan of Pia Gla­dys Perey and Ryan Madamba for clothes, and Gerome Sta. Maria for shoes. I love dis­cov­er­ing young de­sign­ers. My fa­vorite lo­cal painter is Melissa La O’. The Philip­pines is a very cre­ative coun­try and pretty much ev­ery craft is fan­tas­tic. In­ter­na­tion­ally I’m de­voted to Zuhair Mu­rad, Alexan­der McQueen, and Toxic Vi­sion—I like things that are unique and quite ex­trav­a­gant. FA­VORITE SHOP­PING DES­TI­NA­TION I only shop when I need some­thing, but I can find what­ever I can think of in the U.S. FASH­ION IN­SPI­RA­TION Steam punk. STYLE RULES TO LIVE BY First, el­e­gance is an at­ti­tude. Se­cond, fash­ion is tran­si­tory. Third, real beauty comes from within. Fourth, carry your­self like a queen and you’ll be per­ceived as such even if you’re wear­ing a potato sack. Fifth, only wear what suits you and what you feel com­fort­able in. One of my strong­est val­ues is ex­cel­lence. I also be­lieve that ev­ery­thing em­anates from the spirit and that’s what gives you beauty and pres­ence, and it de­fines your en­ergy blue print. If all is aligned, fash­ion just com­ple­ments your grace and glory. STYLE AD­VICE Be cre­ative and com­fort­able in your own skin. FA­VORITE WARDROBE ITEM A black leather belt I bought 17 years ago from an Ar­gen­tinian fash­ion de­signer. I wear it day or night and it looks amaz­ing with ca­sual and for­mal out­fits. It has a soul of its own. PRIZED POS­SES­SIONS The clothes my men­tor and best friend made for me while he was alive. I have been a model since I was 14 years old and my men­tor was a very fa­mous Chilean fash­ion de­signer, Jaime Tron­coso. Sadly he left the Earth in 2010 but ev­ery­thing he ever made for me I trea­sure dearly to this day. I CAN’T LIVE WITH­OUT… The con­nec­tion I have with the higher realms of en­ergy, peo­ple, animals, plants, and laugh­ter. I don’t do well with peo­ple who don’t have a sense of hu­mor. SEA­SON An emer­ald bracelet I am mak­ing for my­self.
