Written and photographed
By Jude Thaddeus L. Bautista
Dennis Lustico is one of the most revered designers we have today, in and out of the Philippines. As his recent SALON show with Lulu Tan Gan, Jojie Lloren and Cesar Gaupo last September 12, 2013 proved they are among the most creative and enduring designers. Jo Ann Bitagcol however, as a model has become one of the most sought after faces in the runway. She is in the elite class that is why she modeled the finale piece in Dennis’ collection. Lustico’s style is quite wearable and sexy at the same time. Clean classic colors of white and beige are accented by revealing small linear cuts on the skirt.
In the documentary EDITOR’S EYE, Vogue proudly proclaims it launched the era of the supermodels. Models have become true collaborators on fashion shows and just as much focus of attention as the designer. Jo Ann is a talent and beauty that has earned that right as a supermodel herself. Apart from her skills and presence on he ramp she is an established fashion photographer and upcoming cinematographer. More than any words I can write, here she is in pictures: Jo Ann Bitagcol for Dennis Lustico.
