The Launching of Style Icons x I Love Koi

I was at the Complex Lifestyle Store in Eastwood Mall in Libis, Quezon City to attend Keds x Style Icons last Friday. It was an intimate event attended by lifestyle and fashion bloggers, a few people from media and selected guests. Style icons Patricia Prieto, Tricia Gosingtian and Plump Pinay (Dawn & Stacy) were there to talk about the swimwear they designed themselves.

Complex Lifestyle Store carries labels like Sperry Top-Sider, Ralph Lauren, Havaianas, etc.

Keds shoes and I Love Koi swimwear are also available at Complex.

Being the first blogger to register gave me enough time to take photos and even chat with designer/ blogger/ style icon/ model Patricia Prieto. If you follow my blog, you know I already met her HERE and HERE. I'm a fan :)

Gathering around.. the program was about to start.

Entered Miss Jan Nicole Solo who greeted us all with words of welcome and a genuine smile.

Like I said, it was an intimate event so the store had enough room for everyone.

Miss Karen Ong followed with her presentation of Keds' history and achievements.

Then it was time to see the newest designs for I Love Koi swimwear.

Tricia Gosingtian talked about what inspired her in creating a high-waisted two piece swimsuit called Lolita and a maillot called Slumberdoll. Both swimsuits are available in different colors and fun vintage prints.

Plump Pinay's swimsuits are called Plumpinup, a high-waisted bikini, and Viderlina, a maillot with asymmetrical design. They are available from XS to XXXL sizes.

Patricia Prieto's designs are called Paradigma and Normandie. The first is a two-piece swimsuit named after her blog, while the latter is a beautiful cutout maillot, the one she's holding in the photo.

After the presentation of the designs, we were treated into a light snack of cupcakes and iced tea and juices from Happy Lemon. Guests had a chance to have a photo op with the designers and utilize the photo booth where one can get instant souvenir photos. Lastly, a raffle was made where I was able to win a pair of Havainas. Yey, so lucky!

Complex Lifestyle Store is in Eastwood Mall, Alabang Town Center, Ayala Center Cebu and Festival Mall.
