Stylist to the Matrons (Kilabot ng mga Matrona)


Stylists are interpreters of fashion. They select the wardrobe for advertising campaigns, television shows, music videos, concert performances, or any public appearances made by celebrities. Some stylists become personal shoppers of celebrities. This is why every fashionista should maintain stylist friends because they can always help resell unwanted fashion pieces.

A bag collector has been doing business with this certain stylist for more than two years. She has purchased several designer bags from him and he has also helped her sell some of her pre-loved bags. Her problem with him started when she entrusted him several designer bags amounting to 250,000 Php. She endorsed them to him before leaving for the U.S.A. for a vacation. When she came home after a few months, her attempts to get in touch with the stylist to check on the status of her bags all failed. The stylist ignored her SMS messages and phone calls. She never got back her bags nor received any payment.

This stylist also borrowed several items from a jewelry store to show to his clients. When the jewelry store owner was requesting him to return the items, he started ignoring her.  Out of anger, the owner sent SMS messages to their common friends informing them about the sad incident. She never heard from him again and never saw the items as well.

Apart from not returning bags and pieces of jewelry, this stylist is also known for selling bags and jewelry to his matron friends at exorbitant prices. He also has a habit of asking them for gifts. There was one time when he was a guest at the mansion of one his matron friends, he raided her closet and begged her for a Goyard bag. She ended up giving it to him.   

This male stylist's celebrity clients include a veteran television hostess and a young female pop singer from a giant television network. Do you know this stylist?

  1. I hate stylists and all the Rachel Zoes in the world. It's unfair they get paid more that the designer. They have no talent, They only have good taste.

  12. Love the comments especially from the loser designers and fashion wannabes who finally have a venue to vent. Sa wakas, their opinions are heard even if not believed. If u can dish it out, learn to take it. Bow.

  13. @Xander Isisdro: this is what blogs have going for them, "anonymity". kaya nga hindi sya FB post diba? also, did you you just get in this thread w/o bothering to read the article? everything in there is proven tru by the way, because i know the people who have been inconvened by you "friend". and di ba nga, we've been trying to contact him, he has a cruel way of ignoring those people that he owe. he's been in the industry longer than i've been alive, Zander Isidro. he's an old dog, he should know what to do. alright? now run along!

  17. I agree with @dragonred. If what you negative people are saying is true, then I don't think people especially those in the fashion and showbiz industry would still trust him. As an evidence to that his friends, colleagues, and clients are STILL there and a way bigger percentage than those Haters that you can probably can count by your mere hands.

  18. ARE YOU SURE ABOUT THAT ANONYMOUS WHO AGREED WITH DRAGONRED?!? ALMOST ALL THE SOCIALITE THINK THAT HE IS SO WRONG. WHY NOT CHECK IT OUT FIRST. : ) PENGE NGANG GOUYARD. : )

  20. This is another sad revelation about someone in the fashion industry.

    I hope some of you wouldn't think that ALL stylists are like this because I believe most stylists can be trusted and are really hard-working. Also, this is an eye-opener to EVERYONE (not only those in this business) to be careful with whom to trust as well as to always know your business ethics and values.

    Great blog, by the way! :)
