Known for her quirky yet feminine approach to design and cheerful desposition, Tippi has made a revered name for herself in the Philippine fashion industry, but it seems that she's got much, much further to go.
"When I received a surprise overseas phone call about the possibility of being part of a global campaign that has long championed women’s uniqueness, diversity and authenticity (along with being the top ad campaign of the 21st century), I was thrilled! Personally I’ve always believed in celebrating creativity and personal expression, as well as embracing and enhancing women’s diverse beauty through the clothes I design—so it’s not everyday that what we hold true aligns perfectly with the opportunities presented to us," Tippi writes of the experience in her blog.
And like every true-blue fashion girl, Tippi could barely contain her excitement over meeting Mario, who has shot countless photographs for the likes of Vogue, Vanity Fair, and GQ, as well as campaigns for Gucci, Burberry, Versace, Chanel, and Lancome.
As if that wasn't enough, Mario even posted a photo of himself with Tippi on Instagram! "Very exciting to work with women from different parts of life. Such unique stories," he captions it.
