"...It can be pretty tough deciding which clothes will look chic while keeping one’s self warmed up for the chilly weather. Finding ways to stay dry without giving up style can be tricky. But this should not be that huge a problem with some fashion tips to make the raindrops seem like lemon drops and gum drops.
Rainy days already come with a certain depressing feeling.How much worse can things get if one wears something depressing as well? Opting for the bright, colored outfits will definitely turn a gloomy day into a glowing one. Just have in hand the basic protective gear like umbrella or raincoat.
Designer Yves Camingue has some fabulous ideas to reign supreme even through the rain. He calls this rainy day collection, “Trickskater.”
If the name seems a bit puzzling, knowing where Yves drew his inspiration from could help clear things out. Unusual as it may sound, but Yves’ muses were appliances, skateboarding, sportswear, Dubstep, songs of Skrillex and Eva Simons. It is evident that the “trick” was coming up with a fashion idea from a fashionably irrelevant item.

Hi! This is Yves Camingue. Clothing designer from Cebu City.
I am currently based in Manila designing for STOKEDINC. In my free time, I'm also accepting various garment orders for my own namesake line.
I was a finalist for PROJECT RUNWAY PHILIPPINES Season 3 last 2012, being eliminated 5th after the Kidswear Challenge.
I'm letting you have an exclusive access of what's it like to be IN the local fashion industry; living and sometimes breaking the rules of it, breathing fashion everyday and dealing with disrespectful novices and respecting seniors. Outfit posts are testaments that every moment in life is an opportunity for fashion. Also included here are photo journals outside my job area: parties & trips, which are chockablock with true friends and experiences that make life a refulgent heaven and truclent hell.
I love the urban sights, marketplaces, flea markets and London pop/rock music, dancehall & reggaeton, as well as New York alternative. These are incorporated in my editorials, creations and more fashion-related endeavors.
