Aside from the lingering fear and spreading worldwide belief that year 2012 could be the year of the much awaited event of the religious fanatics, particularly, the fanatics of Christianity, that is, ”End of the World/Judgment Day” but to spiritual mystics it is the “End and Beginning of New Era of Consciousness”, what could be the last fashion sense of the present humanity will wear before the old era will explode and give birth a new era of consciousness on earth if in case the predictions and prophecy regarding 2012 could be true after all?
Actually twenty one fashion designers forecast or predicted what will be the trending clothing this forthcoming year (year 2012) and presented a glimpse what to expect on fashion world on the year 2012 like the spiritual mystics presenting information what could be expected on the year 2012, on twenty one shows (one show per one designer per week) presented by Fashion Design Council of the Philippines on their Annual Fashion Series at the Rizal Ballroom of Makati Shangri-La Hotel.
Here are what some top designers on this fashion gala show has to say about what will be the vogue dress up this coming 2012.

But these are all forecast what people would be in trendy this coming 2012 but of course few only will have to show it off if they could carry the dress lest they will look drag and just resort to what they usually dress up and accustomed to wear. But sometimes one have to comply forcibly on the latest trends in dressing like you can wear anymore gowns today as your daily dress, is not it? or can you wear g-string while shopping in malls today, no more is not it?
To wrap up, according to world renowned Filipino fashion designer in the Philippines, Inno Sotto : “Fashion changes, and Fashion Watch is committed to these changes that are altogether new. This fashion series showcase the creativity of various individual works. It is a show of fashion designers for fashion designers; featuring the creations of the best and the brightest,”
Yup, fashion changes whether one like it or not; one have to comply the latest clothing to wear else what I have said above, you will look out dated or living in another time frame though you are not only because of your own fashion that never changes. Thus, one is forcibly should comply and look for the latest trends in dressing up.
However, there are fashions in the past that can be reincarnated back and be the latest vogue, so fortunate are you if you dislike going on the flow of latest fashion, for you might not know that your old fashion way of dressing up could be the next vogue in fashion.
