Philip Rodriguez brings ladylike dressing to 2018.

From the very first model that Cebu-based designer Philip Rodriguez sent down the runway, it has already been made clear that this was a season of the eyes, beauty-wise. The girls walked the runway with powdered faces, graphic winged eyeliner, and subdued lips. When not covered by large hats, their hair was neat, unadorned and kept away from the face. The image harked back to the time when the women adorned themselves with feathers and embroidered flowers, gigantic bows, and bishop sleeves, like this one particular look below.

Breaking down the look to its individual pieces, one would find them far more wearable for everyday life as opposed to, say, waiting for an invitation to the Manila Hotel's Champagne Room. The pencil skirt was a pretty mix of textures. Fringe and glitter in soft colors of pink, white, silver, and even black would pair nicely with a silken spaghetti top in a deep jewel tone. The leg o'mutton-sleeve top could be worn with no-nonsense black cigarette pants for an office meeting; it says serious business without having to compromise style.

The models hardly had to wear any jewelry, given that the clothes were statement-making enough: full skirts, floor-length palazzos, tiered tulle dresses and cage necklines. See for yourself below.
