i am giriish

painter, writer,
designer, martial artist,

and these are my jottings...

bows and flows of angel's hair

Elements of sky and water often inspire my work. I looked through images of garments that i made in the past and realized how they were often interpretations of what i saw...

travelling on a boat from Bantayan Island to Cebu, the shimmering reflection of the moon on the blackness of the sea was echoed on a cocktail number (which vanished backstage after the show) for Metrowear.

jet beads and silver paillettes on tafetta

on a quiet day in panglao island, clouds hanging just above the horizon saw recreation on a vest, again for Metrowear (this one i managed to keep)...

and finally, on a boat ride to Manila, the hazy colors of the bay at the break of day reverberated on this ensemble for MEGA magazine.

tafetta top, ultra suede trousers

this image still percolates in my head... perhaps for the Amorsolo retrospective. But really, bucolic this is not.
