Carla Zimbelman, Professor of fashion courses at Monterey Peninsula College, recently invited Evelyn Sineneng-Smith, a Fashion Entrepreneur based in Silicon Valley, to lecture to her fashion students, the couture fabrication techniques utilized by designers Francis Libiran, Oliver Tolentino and Monique Lhuillier. The three featured designers created special occasion gowns for the red-carpet, modeled by celebrities at the recent 2012 Emmys in Los Angeles and the 2012 Blossom Ball in New York.

Oliver Tolentino created a blue gown worn by Maria Menounos, the co-host of the dimpled Mario Lopez of EXTRA. Evelyn described to the fashion students the "jusi", the unique fabric used by Oliver Tolentino. "Jusi" is made of fibers stripped from the stalks and leaves of a banana tree. These fibers were then carefully woven in an old-fashioned hand loom to create the fabric. It was then dyed into royal blue, intricately put together and worn beautifully by Maria Menounos at the recent 2012 Emmy Awards.
 
World-class designer, Monique Lhuillier, the amazing genius behind her own global brand, created a champagne beige gown meticulously hand-embellished with persimmon-orange vines all over the gown.    This was worn elegantly on the red carpet at the recent 2012 Emmys by Hollywood actress, Ginnifer Goodwin, of the popular "Once Upon A Time" television series.
 
Finally, Evelyn "introduced" Francis Libiran, on the giant screen, to the amazement of the fashion students of Carla Zimbelman. Francis, an architect by profession and who is also a fashion designer based in the Philippines, created his own special occasion fabric using strips of bias cut fabric and individually arranged to create the linear effect. This architecturally-inspired black and white gown was worn by statuesque supermodel Tyra Banks at the 2012 Blossom Ball in New York.
 
Carla Zimbelman, also herself a fashion designer, teaches fashion courses at the Monterey Peninsula College in Monterey, California. She is currently working with the Department Chair of the college to revamp the Fashion Program of the college. She designs couture handbags with her own label, "Carla Renee". A fashionista can choose from Carla's portfolio of over 300 leather swatches, all made in the USA.    She is an alumna of the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) in San Francisco, California.
 
Evelyn Sineneng-Smith is a Fil-Am Fashion Entrepreneur and intermixes her Legal, Business and Internet Marketing skills with her Passion for Fashion! She is based in San Jose, the capital of Silicon Valley in California.
