Not By The Book

Designer Tippi Ocampo launches her new book.
Not By The Book Designer Tippi Ocampo launches her new book.

Inspiration is a tricky thing. It comes and goes, and is often nowhere to be found when you're in dire need of artistic hits. With "Not By the Book" Fashioning Design, designer Tippi Ocampo sheds some light on that little thing called inspiration.

Tippi invites us into her world to find out just what catches her eye, and how she translates these into sketches and then into actual products. You'd be surprised at how this whimsical Filipina designer has managed to find fashion in the fugliest of things.

"Not By the Book" is designed in collaboration with celebrated graphic artist Cynthia Bauzon Arre, as well as Chinggay Labrador and Lizza Guttierez. Together with the book's official launch, a week-long fashion exhibit of custom designed gowns and dresses, curated by the Ateneo Art Gallery's Yael Buencamino, will take place at the Greenbelt 3 lobby from November 24 to 30. Watch out for book signings and meet-and-greet activities to be held here too!

A sure cure for mental blocks and artistic droughts, and a downright informative and entertaining good read, be sure to add this one to your book shelves.

"Not By the Book" will soon be available in leading specialty bookstores for P950. For limited-edition orders, email order@notbythebook.net or text 0915-7100357.

Happy reading!
