of our colorful and vibrant JEEPNEY! It even has reflective details incorporated
into the design that is reminiscent of car sunshade insulators,” she said.

the show,” she added.
Kim also wore a colorful, maximalist “fit” during the exclusive premiere of the
series later that night.

reworked and upcycled into a couture-like creation.

in the show, designer of this dress @ehrranmontoya used recycled scrap
materials that were reworked and repurposed to make this couture dress,” Kim

the design,” she added.
