Theme: Cupid and the Red Strings of Fate
Objective: To create a collection that will suit a church wedding
The theme ‘Cupid and the Red Strings of Fate’ was inspired by the book Karmic Hearts by Jhing Bautista. Love is always involved in every wedding, and Cupid is always associated with love. In Greek Myth, Cupid is the god of love. This role was retained in Karmic Hearts where Cupid is a matchmaker who was punished because he fell in love with a mortal. Being an expert in the love department, Cupid pointed out many things such as the existence of the red strings of fate. He said that everyone has an invisible string attached to his/her finger and the other end of this string is connected to the person’s soulmate.
“When strings connect and glow, it means true love. Kapag malayo na ang minamahal ng isang tao sa kanya, the string fades as if the other half is lost.” —Cupid
Cupid’s arrow and angel wings, as well as the red strings, can be incorporated into a collection. Worn in a church wedding, the ensemble will surely make the ambiance more romantic and magical.
