MANILA – Heart Evangelista has appeared on countless magazine covers, which sealed her status as a local fashion icon.
She considers her latest magazine stint, however, as a milestone – for the first time, the actress wore clothes that showcased her own paintings.
Evangelista appears on the December 2018 cover of Mega, donning a dress from her newly launched collaboration with the homegrown clothing brand Kamiseta.
Love Marie for Kamiseta, which is based on her real name Love Marie Ongpauco Escudero, features prints from the actress’ artworks.
“This is such a major moment for me!” Evangelista said in an Instagram post on Wednesday. “I’m so incredibly humbled and grateful to be wearing my own work.”
Here are photos of Evangelista in Love Marie for Kamiseta outfits, as shared by Mega:
Dubbed a “real crazy rich Asian” by the American fashion magazine Harper’s Bazaar, Evangelista is known for combining her passion for art and fashion, using designer handbags as her canvas.
She has also held exhibits of her paintings in Manila and Singapore.
