Hi, everyone! I was able to attend the launch of Parisian's new collection, Rajo! for Parisian, at SMDC last week, Nov 9. This collection was scheduled to be released in seven SM Department Store branches starting Nov 11. Thank you, MissGennD for the invite!
Top Filipino fashion designer Rajo Laurel, in collaboration with SM Parisian, came up with 14 creative new styles of shoes that are sure to be a big hit to many shoe-lovers out there.
It was my first time attending a fashion-related event. I was overwhelmed and excited at the same time. It was definitely a fun experience!
The event started with models/DJs Mia Ayesa, Sanya Smith and Ornusa Cadness (The Zombettes) cranking up the night. Then we got a sneak peak of the collection by watching this short video.
Here's Rajo Laurel introducing his new collection.
Here are the models showing off some of the shoes. Sorry for the cropped legs, though. As much as I tried, I couldn't get a clear shot of the shoes from where I was standing. But don't worry! I didn't go home without taking clear shots, of course! I'm warning you now... this post is picture-heavy :]
|Van Der Rohe Heels|
|Kylie G Open Wedges - A crowd favorite!|
|Kylie S Wedges|
Did the Kylie wedges catch your eye? Well, they certainly caught mine! And that's not even half of the collection!
After the "show," we were given the chance to take a closer look at the shoes, and to shop even before the collection came out in SM Department stores. There are a total of 14 shoe styles in this collection, and each style comes in different colors. This is a limited edition collection, by the way. There are only 200 pairs available per color for each style, so you better hurry and get the pair/s you like ASAP. All styles come in sizes 5-10 only.

|Kylie G Closed Wedge|
|Kylie G Open Wedge|
|Van Der Rohe Heels|
|Van Der Rohe Flats|
Although I don't consider myself as a very fashionable person, I do know a good style of shoe when I see one. The Kylie wedges are goooorgeous, especially Kylie S and the red open Kylie G, but I don't think I'd be able to pull of wearing them. I'd probably get the Strutt heels or play it safe and get Eames. For flats, I like Van Der Rohe but not in black... I like 'em in gold :D
So have you picked your favorite yet? If you have, then go visit any of the seven SM branches that carry this new collection. This collection was scheduled to be released on and at:
- November 11 - SM Mall of Asia

- November 15 - SM Southmall, SM North Edsa
- November 19 - SM Cebu and SM Cubao
I wouldn't have enjoyed this event without my fellow bloggers! It's always nice to see familiar AND new faces!
