Just at the outskirts of the city of Laoag, after a trek through a long dusty road, is one of the Philippines most surreal landscapes – La Paz, the Desert of the North.  With one side providing a spectacular panoramic view of the cool waters of the South China Sea, and the other side stretching to inland Ilocos Norte, the 85 sqm geological monument of undulating sand dunes, and beach is a serene other worldly spot quite unique to the archipelago.

Here, the barren earth meets the endless blue sky and calm waters in one dramatic moment of silence providing perfect backdrop to smoldering frocks with nomadic inclinations.
