With some help from fellow celebrities, Love Marie, aka Heart Evangelista, is fast-becoming a brand in the fashion world.

It began as part of her painting hobby in July last year, turning one of her bags into canvas.

The "beginning"...

My first ever...??? shall we begin? #lovemarie

Then came the demand for Heart-painted bags.

See how the Love Marie art did a quick overhaul on Carla Abellana's old Prada bags.

Now, she charges her clients in the Philippines, Hong Kong, and Singapore at least 99,000 pesos per bag.

In January, she announced that her hobby has become a business. She launched her limited-edition Love Marie clutch bags.

And from the bags, she ventured into Heart-painted dresses in a collaboration called MBxLM with her friend/ designer Mark Bumgarner.

The latest: celebrities wear her dresses.

She was thrilled to see her design on Carla Abellana.

And Heart was so "kilig" to see Maine Mendoza wear her hand-painted dress for her Manila Bulletin's Style Weekend pictorial.

The reason we do what we love...#MBxLM #lovemariehandpainteddresses on @mainedcm ??????@markbumgarner *kilig*
