Cannes, mainly famous for the Film Festival that has been running since it started back in 1946, saw something new happen this year. This time, Cannes had a Fashion Festival, which was the first of its kind. Nestled between the Cannes Film Festival, which started on the 13th of May, the Fashion Festival saw many new models, performers and designers showcasing their collections.

Among all the designers showcasing their collections was Andres Aquino. Along wth being a Fashion Designer, he is also an Editor, a Writer, Producer, Poet, Theater Director, Business Entrepreneur and an Artist.
The theme of Aquino’s collection was the most unique this year. instead of starting off as a traditional fashion show in which a model walks on the ramp, it started and ended with a very brief theatrical perfomance. The dresses were of dark, sinister and smart theme. Long Robes and flying capes, smartly sewn long dresses and sexy suits showed as if some characters living in the mythical city of Gotham had come out.
I met up with Charlotte Gressier, a model/actress who performed in the brief theatrical show. This is what she had to say: ” Andres Aquino chose a non conventional way of doing the fashion show. He had advised his models to not to pose, but to perform and have fun and smile on the cat walk, which is a very rare thing to do in a traditional fashion show.”

I asked Charlotte Gressier about her part in the brief theatrical show: ” I met up with Andres Aquino in the bus on the way to Cannes, and their he proposed to me to finish the fashion show in a very dramatic way. Thus I integrated my idea of putting myself into Harley Quinn’s style and got my make up done in that way. I chose not to wear shoes so that i could raise a question of stability and the expectations in a traditional fashion show.”
Andres Aquino wooed the audience by his unique concept and design. His experience in being a theatrical director and artist paid off with this show. Let’s wait and see what else Andres Aquino has in store for his next collection.
