Fashion Designer Happy Andrada has been the talk of the town because of her world-class talent. She has won several international awards including International Artist of the Year 2016 in the International Fashion Art Biennale, Seoul Korea, Miami Fashion Week International Emerging Designer and she won two major awards in the Asian Weddings and Arts Competition in Hong Kong.
No doubt, people swarm over her fashion shows all over the world and I'm one of them. I can still remember attending Philippine Fashion Week back in 2011 and 2012 just to see her edgy, elegant designs featuring sensual silhouettes of the everyday woman.
Now that she's getting married, her lovely sister Viva Andrada O'Flynn and friends, threw her a Havana-themed bridal shower+bootcamp and I am very happy to have been a part of it! There were tons of fun activities, awesome prizes and food.

And...the highlight of this wonderful occasion: Miss to Mrs. by Happy Andrada! :) Soon to be brides, this collection is for you! Happy Andrada specifically designed modern dresses for young and lively brides who want to express their bubbliness as their big day approaches. These are the outfits for pre-wedding events such as meet-the-parents, engagement parties, bachelorette parties, bridal showers, pre-nup photoshoots and even civil weddings.
My eyes glistened as I saw the models walk the runway. I was totally sold! The prints in bright and bold colors, intricate fabric and creative details are truly stunning. Everything oozes in femininity, speaks chic and flowy.
Even how Happy visualized and created this collection is one-of-a-kind. Happy Andrada's team created nature-inspired patterns based on a photo shoot showcasing movements of dancers with Artists and Company's photography, Shaira Luna. The patterns were then digitally printed with Kornit Allegro the world's first single step roll-to-roll digital textile printing system, revolutionized fabric customization that makes it possible to print on different fabric materials ranging from on any type like chiffon or abaca. It displays the creativity and ingenuity of Happy as a designer.
Psyched about the collection? It will be available soon at Fashion ART 24 J. Erestain corner K-1st Kamuning, Quezon City.
