Monsanto presents his collection, “Belles Fleurs” in vibrant colors and exciting elements of the garden. Monsanto will take the audience on a journey of fancy eye candy couture in this runway opulence with visuals of the season’s flora & fauna, playful mix of palettes, textures, and fabric processing. The collection will feature unique pleating and classic sunburst to add texture on the fabrics. The palette has a myriad of intensifying color hues such as avocado, purple, magenta, burgundy, turquoise, teal, gray, pink and yellow. His collection also features blacks, ivory and nudes for a more timeless and classic fashion.

The collection will feature Monsanto’s signature combination of feminine creative vision and timeless appeal as he uses the finest luxury fabrics as his canvas, Monsanto, Laser cuts techniques, pleats, weaving, embroideries, and hand paint. In addition to his luxury and contemporary lines, he features,”tribute to Philippines” to celebrate Filipino-American History Month by showcasing high fashion Philippine inspired designs and weaves that reflect the country’s rich cultural heritage. Monsanto collaborates with artisans and craftsmen of Noble Creation for the garments made in pineapple, jusi and cocoon fabrics, Viktorya for the minaudiere and Jojo Bragais for the shoes. The Monsanto look is his signature sensuality, verve & sophistication. Sexy but not gauche, sophisticated but not eccentric, embellished but not flashy.

“I embrace a style that is irreverent, unafraid, existential and provocative. With fashion I aspire to create challenges for myself, while creating a whimsical world for my client. Ideally, they’ll tap into a form of expression that would otherwise seem unattainable. I am inspired by everything in my life, from the cold black objectivity of commerce to the warm subjective embrace of the muses.” says Monsanto.
