CARY SANTIAGO: HAUTE IN COUTURE-Metrowear Bridal’10



CARY SANTIAGO is contending himself, struggling to revive couture, a renaissance; a rebirth of classicism’s dying trade. With his fine tailoring sensibilities, Santiago challenge the establishment, the old cliche’… with lots of skill at his fingertips, merging innate talent and his no nonsense attitude to creativity.

CARY SANTIAGO’s BRIDAL COLLECTION has his name written all over it…his finest contribution so far to fashion.
His unmistakably ultra glamorous pieces of organza and chiffon plumage origami, was something so exquisite.


Santiago’s signature: sculpted bodice and gravity defying origami folds harmoniously moulage to form a voluminous fluid skirt, resonates operatic fluidity only a CARY SANTIAGO could muster.

The breathtaking columns of grey pleats in a well structured knee length dress masked carefully without any glitters and further embellishment…pure genius.

Given the attention to detail in those chiffon pieces, the over all simplicity translates exquisite haute couture procedure: painstakingly stitched bias cut-outs that unsurprisingly costs hundreds of hours to finish.

CARY SANTIAGO’s audacity to create art to art…is his natural, creative porn. He has arrived. Definitely.
