Fashion series premiers on Lifestyle Network
REDWOOD CITY, California — Lifestyle Network launched an all-new series, “Haute the Record,” on the journey of Filipino fashion designers from around the world who have stitched their way to international fame.
“In every corner of the world, Filipino craftsmen and artisans have been creating the fashion world’s trends and setting the bar for international couture,” said Olivia de Jesus, managing director for ABS-CBN North America. “These mini-documentaries tell their stories that rarely come through the velvet ropes.”
The series premiere features American fashion mavens Carlyn Nuyda Calloway, Alexis Monsanto and Rafe Totengco.
In her Sherman Oaks atelier, bridal designer Carlyn Nuyda Calloway designs romance. Her muse, the bohemian and amorous bride, is the inspiration behind her work that is known to be timeless, elegant, vintage and the living legacy of generations of love stories. From bridal headpieces to made-to-measure evening gowns, handcrafted and carefully conceptualized designs are her signature.
Alexis Monsanto is dressmaker to the silver screen’s stars. Known for his dramatic runway events and 3D fashion shows, Monsanto is a trendsetter whose fashion forecasts have landed his designs on headlines, TV shows and best dressed lists. The line of exclusive clientele that wraps around his Melrose Avenue showroom follows him for his creations that are perfect in fit and impeccable in design.
For style architect behind statement handbags and minaudières, Rafe Totengco, it all starts with inspiration. His collections are tokens of wanderlust, designs that have been spurred by the bold, nostalgic and generational elements of everyday life around the world. The masterful manipulation of stone and shell and his compositions that mimic treasures of the world, be it garment, flora, or architecture, have catapulted him to the forefront of supreme designers of this generation.
In this glossy segment, designers showcase their inspiration, signature style and craft that have made them some of the fashion world’s most anticipated and recognized designers.
