I am from a province in the Philippines called Baliuag, Bulacan but I usually spend my time in Metro Manila because here is the center of my work.
Was fashion always a part of your life since you were a child growing up?
Yes. It has always been a part of me because when I was a little, my mom always dressed me up like a model on the television so now that I am all grown up, I have learned on how to style myself with the help of the people and the environment that I’ve been seeing every day.
Where do you get your fashion inspiration from?
There are too many people to mention actually. I am always fond of checking various sites wherein they feature fashion travellers and I am inspired or should I say influenced by their styles. It’s not that I copy their styles and outfits but I am always looking for the aura and the impact of their clothing through pictures.
I make it to the point that I make my own statement, depending on my mood and personality. I love to mix and match—from fabrics to colors to styles. With that, my learning still continues up to this day because there will always be a trend when it comes to fashion.
Do you have any other hobbies or interests?
Of course I do! Aside from traveling and fashion styling, I also love to cook (usually Italian), I also do reviewing and promoting beauty products online under PR/Marketing companies/agencies because skincare and makeup are the things that I am in to nowadays.
When I have my free time, I work as an online tutor to various university students that mainly focus on Arts and Humanities. I also teach Math online, specifically Algebra and Geometry. I used to do voice overs, acting gigs as well because I was part of a theater guild when I was in high school and college. So yeah, there are pretty much things that I want and love to do.
If you could travel back in time, is there something you will like to experience or change?
If I will be given a chance to go back or change something in the history or in the past, I will not change anything because I am myself right now because of what I’ve been through. Good or bad, I am thankful that I have experienced all of those because for me, learning is a process wherein you have to at least make mistakes for you be honed and shaped for the future.
What is your fashion style like and where do you usually shop at?
Green and orange are not my best friends. When I travel I usually go for nude, mauve, blue palettes. Sometimes, I am hippie, then there are days I want to be sultry but most of the clothes that I wear are purely chic fashion style. For some days, I am being experimental. I’m trying bohemian, artsy or vintage fashions that will surely suit my personality and body.
I think you wouldn’t believe that I am a fan of thrift shopping but in reality, I am. There are a lot of nice clothes out there waiting for you. You just have to find and try them on. I usually shop at Forever21, H&M, Mango, and other shops similar to those but ever since the pandemic came to our lives, I am considering shopping online as well.
On a scale of 1-10, how much of a risk taker are you?
I am in the max of 10. I know there are disadvantages of being a risk taker but I think being adventurous and curious has always been in me. If I fail, my thinking is that at least I’ve tried. There are a lot of famous people today that they won’t be famous, rich and successful if they didn’t take a risk for once in their life.
What is a funny or lame attempt a guy has tried to know you?
In my social media accounts, I have always put my email address to my bio or profile for the people who wants to collaborate and work with me won’t have to slide in my inbox anymore but instead will be directed to my inbox mail which I really use for my personal and business matters.
One time I was scrolling through my mail and I saw a message from a stranger stating that he wants to know me more and be friends with me. I was a bit surprised because the message was composed in a very formal way as if he’s pitching a business idea to me. I don’t consider it lame. In fact, it was funny and I appreciate the effort of that guy who approached me through my email posted on my Instagram account.
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Camille. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
Being sexy for me is more than just the physical or what our naked eyes can see. It is more of sense of humor for me. Having someone be engaged in your conversation and make it last forever is sexy. Eyes, themselves, are sexy. It depends to people on how angle they will look at it.
