STALK FEATURE: BLACKDEWA gets STALK’d

“It is a BLOGGER’s ultimate GOAL to COLLABORATE with an INTERNATIONAL BRAND to WIDEN his MARKET and EXPAND his CONNECTIONS”

This is the TRUTH.
The truth that I’ve learned from this young entrepreneur JARROD ADAMS..
Who’s making waves across the fashion industry – one connection at a time.
But for me there’s more to business than just random connections..
It is the FRIENDSHIP that is built through every shoot..
Every interview..
Every writeup..
yeah sounds cheesy but you really could find colleagues with the same level of passion through these connections..
Nowadays connections can be built through different mediums..
One of which is what we call – INSTAGRAM.
INSTAGRAM has truly changed the way people market themselves..
Either their PHOTOGRAPHY..
Their LIFE..
BODY..
TRAVEL..
ART or HOBBY..
This is actually how I’ve gotten to know Jarrod..
Perhaps through the crazy hashtags that I’ve been placing on my posts..  
And everything else was HISTORY.

Jarrod has started his own Australian label for about a couple of years now..
A controversial label that he started back in INDONESIA..
He had a few ideas in mind but two ideas stood out..
It has to be RELATABLE w/ an INDEPENDENT feel on it..

Jarrod was actually quite brilliant with the idea of using an upside down cross as his print..
But please don’t get him wrong he respects every religion and is fascinated with it..
(or else I could have turned down this feature.. haha!)
He used it to show the REBEL side of his label..
He wanted to break the mainstream shirt appeal..
And to show people the importance of FREEDOM OF SPEECH..
This is just something that made his label CONTROVERSIAL..
He actually named his label BLACKDEWA which meant “MYSTERIOUS GOD”..
According to his story putting the Indonesian work DEWA which meant GOD with the ENGLISH word BLACK was another controversy..
He had only chosen the word DEWA because he wanted to give back the country who had embraced him so much and helped him become the artist that he truly is ..
And he placed an ENGLISH word BLACK to describe his label as MYSTERIOUS..
(in a good way ofcourse!)

The thing that I admire most with Jarrod is that he is really ASSERTIVE in reaching his dreams..
I remember telling him about plans of mine such us printing my stuff and selling it..
Long and behold a few months after he sent me his printed lookbook..
One time I told him about my favorite male blogger here in the Philippines..
And a few months after this male blogger has posted a look while wearing his label..

Now after a year (if I am right?) of chatting and talking about our passion..
he finally came here in the country to collaborate with STALK!
Yeah cuuuuraaayyzee!
He just recently went to Singapore then here in our country and his last stop Bangkok in the search for fabrics that he could use for his latest collection for his show in an upcoming FASHION WEEK in Australia.. Which just made me so proud of this man!

He had stayed in one of the posh hotels here in the south and a few weeks ago that long wait finally happened!
We worked with STALK’s cover boy David Olson for this collaboration..
And I must say that David improved a lot..
He actually nailed this shot in less than half an hour..
that ROADTRIP all the way to Tagaytay was just epic..

Anyway I am soo proud to show you guys our editorial for Jarrod’s BLACKDEWA..

BLACKDEWA x STALK

One of a BLOGGER’s ultimate GOAL is to ATTRACT brands..

For a COLLABORATION..

Or for SPONSORSHIP..

One is that it widens your BLOG TRAFFIC and it broadens your NETWORK..

So I’m really glad that I’ve finally got the opportunity to shoot the work of this young man..

Jarrod Adams from Australia..

What I WORE: Basics “The White Tee”

Men’s wear is as BASIC as we guys are..
As much as we want to make things complicated it’s all about being GWAPO (or handsome in English)
MEN want to dress up because we want to look FRESH..
Kinda like the guy out of shower.. (please nod your head..haha)
So this year my “WHAT I WORE” entries would be the BASICS..
How to build your strong WARDROBE fit for all occasion..

So to start with what’s the most basic of them all?

The FRESH WHITE TEE..

Or during my college days it was called the ZANJOE MARUDO look haha! (from PBB a local show that I watch..)

There are a lot of variety when choosing a white tee..

1.       COMFORT
I’m sure most guys would agree that we prioritize comfort than any other thing (right?)
My choice would be the one which is made with cotton..

2.       BRAND
Don’t get me wrong I am not that brand conscious but there are certain brands that I personally TRUST (big word! haha)

3.       FIT
Since I am not that guy with a small waist then FIT is important for me..
I would normally choose the fit that’s tight on the arms and a little loose on the torso..

So given these criteria in choosing a white tee here’s how I would rock this basic item and make it mine..
I paired it with a FADED GREY PANTS..
Then I chose to make it fun by using SNEAKS instead of a more serious footwear..
Then to add up that “ME” vibe I accessorized this basic look with a NAVY BLUE TRENCH (just to maximize the cold weather for the past few days)
 And a BROWN BELT + BLACK WATCH & BLACK SHADES..













This look is so wearable in a lot of ways..
Either hitting the MALL with FRIENDS..
Casual OFFICE LOOK..
And a lot more..

So that’s it STALKERS for my first look inspired by the WHITE TEE..

STALK FEATURE: How To Ace A Pageant Shoot

It is such a privilege to actually be trusted to shoot this pageant that we have at work..

Being a manager at work is a totally different story but the fact that I have this outlet to share my talent with the company that I chose to work for just feels amazing..

Anyway since summer is coming up I figured that it's time to post these shots from our fun at work activity called A**Y Beach Bodies (I apologize if I cant mention the name of the company here due to.. never mind haha!)

but I'd like give you guys a few pointers on how you could ace a shoot (esp if you guys are working with an amazing photographer??! haha.. kiddin!)  

So let's start with the head shots..

·         PREPARE.
o   It's time that you become the king / queen of SELFIE by practicing with a mirror or your phone.. have a hair cut.. and make sure you are on your best look by sleeping
·         LEARN MAKE-UP
o   You can’t expect the pageant to give you the best make-up artist (vice versa) you cant expect the make up artist to bring stuff that suits your complexion
o   For guys learn the art or concealing (it’s less complicated for us so be happy.. haha) 
·         SMIZE
o   Take it from TYRA – smile with your eyes and make your eyes do the talking
·         MOVE
o   You have to give tour photographer VARIETY bymoving your head a little.. chin up here and chin down there.. look to your right..look to your left etc.
·          TALK
o   A model with a great personality has most likely a bigger chance of winning than someone who looks perfect but can’t survive a small chit-chat with the people he/she works with
·         BE YOURSELF (your best self atleast)
o   We all know that we could smell a faker a few meters away so don’t fake it.. be real and have fun! 













and here are the rest of the shots!

Enjoy browsing everyone.

So we have a fresh batch of stylish folks coming from my Alma mater LaSalle Dasma..

These we’re actually shot a longtime ago so I apologize for the uber long delay.. haha

STREET STYLE is something that emerged from CULTURE..

something very personal..

EDGY and has that extra SPUNK..

Something that will set you apart from the rest of the crowd..

Be either PREPPY..

GOTH..

PUNK..

And a lot more..

and yeah we live in a world where INTERNET presence is very important..

FACEBOOK..

INSTAGRAM..

TWITTER..

and the way we present ourselves to this MEDIA is very important..

not because we want to please everyone..

It's just because IT IS  YOU.


Anyway here are some of  my favorite shots from that shoot..
