The chic Zamoras
Posted on

Prior to our Grand Zamora Reunion last December 29, where more than 800 Zamoras attended (including spouses), my view of Zamoras was quite limited.
Prior to the reunion, I would describe Zamoras as being curly-haired, near-sighted, being smart or smartass.
Zamoras love the latest gadgets as well as munching on chicharon and using cuss words.

After the reunion I realized that aside from lawyers and politicians, we also have a few singers (Paolo Santos and Rannie Raymundo are cousins), hairstylists (Piandré are also cousins), a couple of actors (Rem Zamora and Lance Raymundo are cousins), and at least one priest.

We have no beauty queens. We are not known for our looks, so whenever we spot a good-looking person in our reunion, the joke is, it’s an in-law!
My cousin Ana David Coscolluela, who led the planning of the grand reunion also compiled old photos of Zamora ancestors into a Facebook album. From these I was surprised to see a little bit of chicness from our family line.
Check out the girl in the tiered skirt—very Comme des Garçons

This family has that pre-war Hayao Miyazaki feel to it, fashion-wise

True chic looks effortless (even if it’s not)

White suits for men are from a bygone era I would’ve loved to live in. I still wear bobby socks myself

These girls were probably more daring than the usual

Of course nothing is chicer than studying painting in Paris—Juan Zamora, he also died in Paris.

Keri Zamora (below, left) is very chic in that she wears whatever she wants and always has great shoes.
My Japanese friends think she’s a doll. She’s also an in-law which explains why she’s pretty, hehe.
(I’m just kidding)

So now you know how fashion runs through my veins
