Good news everyone! I will soon launch my first clothing line called DinoX next year. It has been a very busy month for me doing everything from scratch all by myself but at the end of the day I am in love with this project and I must say that it is going to be worth it. I am extremely proud and excited and I just cannot wait for you to see my coolest street wear line yet. Here's a sneak peek for ya! Have a happy holidays! ^_^

This video was shot largely without edits. The dancing is remarkable but so is the sensation the girl gives of just barely being in control as her feelings begin to overwhelm her to where she is, literally, at times crawling up the walls. It’s haunting and eerie and compelling. The video gives the tune that extra dimension that if you sit still and watch it from start to finish and concentrate on the lyrics with the visual is sure to give you goosebumps and a new appreciation for what Sia and her co-director Daniel Askill did here.

I recently joined this OOTD competition from H&M opening its flagship store for the first time in Manila. I'm a big fan of H&M and Alexander Wang so i felt very excited about the chance to be part of the well known H&M VIP party everytime a new store opens around the world. Basically all I need to do is to post as much fashionable OOTDs as I can, so I decided to post MY best OOTDs hoping that i would get selected as one of the 10 lucky people to get the vip treatment. Looking fashionable doesn't mean you always need to wear expensive clothing. For me fashion is about expressing yourself and being comfortable with what you wear even if it's from a thrift shop or hand-me-downs from other people. I felt very confident just by looking at other guys' ootds, I really wanted to win really bad haha, I was checking my Twitter (@bancorodino) every single day until one day before the announcement of winners I received a message on Twitter from H&M requesting to get my contact information then they called me and I felt like I won the lottery. Another dream is gonna come true. Sadly, I received a lot of hatred from other people saying I don't deserve to win because my photos are edited. Yes my photos are edited. I enhanced every single photo making an extra effort so my OOTDs will stand out from the rest. H&M did not say that you can't post edited or enhanced photos. I own these photos and nobody can tell me that I cheated because I did not CHEAT. I joined a lot of competitions, 95% of the time I lose but losing is not a reason for me to be bitter and hateful to others. When I lose I learn something from that experience and strive harder to be better the next time. This time I felt like I really deserve this win. Goodnight everyone. ^_^

Good news everyone! The Paris Hilton liked 2 of my designs on Instagram and said it was cool. I wasn't expecting that big of a celebrity will like my design, like I just started designing and I didn't get much compliment from people I do everything on my own, I don't even have a mentor and to get that compliment from Paris Hilton is just a jaw-dropping confirmation that I am doing something right. I was so amazed when I saw that notification pop up I almost dropped my ipad, at first I am hesitant to believe that it was the Paris'official instagram account, upon doing my research I found out that she was the real Paris Hilton. Wow!!! So, check my new designs. ^_^

Hi! I'm about to show you an overview of my designing process. First part will be the base which is obviously a model's body from Google, I would usually pick photos with nude models or with skin tone almost bare undergarments on them, that way it is easy for me to lay the design on the body. Next up, I pick the fabric on Google, you will notice I only lay the design on one side of the model's body that's because as of the moment I am in love with the mirror effect. These two designs are part of my Spider Design Collection. Goodnight!
