I went to Kika Style in Aoyama yesterday for Mich Dulce’s exhibition.
Just to feed everyone with some info, Mich Dulce is a young Filipino fashion designer who’s internationally acclaimed in the world of fashion especially with her delightfully eccentric hats. With her impressive educational background in fashion and design (London College of Fashion, Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, Fashion Institute of Technology in New York) , her curriculum vitae boosts more sparkle with her nominations and victories in different fashion designing competition in the Philippines and even abroad. She was even considered one of the most promising young Asian designers.
Currently, she released her newest collection of hats for AW 2011-2012, which she entitled as Story Telling. All of the pieces are made with tinalak which is originally from Mindanao, the southern island of the Philippines. With its neutral palette and pointy edges, Mich Dulce’s hats for AW 2011 definitely have a very strong vibe.

This black and white bunny inspired hat is my favorite piece from her collection.
I even tried it for myself. What do you think? Will I pass as a Playboy girl?
I really like it. It gives an illusion for hobbits like me grow up a few inches.
If you’re interested with Mich’s hats and you’re here in Tokyo like me, please do visit Kika Style in Aoyama.
