1) Fashion designer Tippi Ocampo. Tippi Ocampo is best known for her fun, playful designs and use of color. She takes inspiration for her designs from everyday objects, and turns them into something lovely. Looking at Tippi's work has taught me two things. One, Fashion doesn't necessarily have to look extravagant or "faaahbulous" to
look great, and Two, It's good to give your imagination a box of crayons and let it play.It's all part of the creative process, after all! The surprising things your imagination can bring out is what makes it fun.

Plug! Plug!

Tippi Ocampo will be holding an exhibit of her work (hark! not a fashion show, but an exhibit!) from November 24 to 30 at Greenbelt 3, Makati. the exhibit will bring to life the contents of her newly-launched book Not By the Book, all snug and cozy in a sumptuous chocolate cloth cover and an embroidered title. (ooh-la-la!) It lets the reader into her creative process. the book will be available for the duration of the exhibit, and will be found in leading specialty bookstores after. I do dream of procuring a book for myself.

2) Zuda Comics' Bayou. Lee is an African-American young girl working with her dad on an estate in 1930s Mississippi -- a place where justice and due process is overturned by the color of your skin. Strange things have happened before Lee's eyes, things that she herself cannot explain. Now, her friend is missing, a white girl her age, her father has been unjustly accused and faces the fury of a lynch mob. Only Lee has the courage to seek out the monster who took her friend Lily hostage and prove her father's innocence. What horrors and wonders await as she steps into the misty, murky world of Bayou?
