"Glamorous, eccentric, and prima donna of the rag trade…" - Julie Yap Daza, Manila Women's Wear, 1979
"Azabache is a look, a mood, a fantasy that is not for the tame, neither is it a style that can be compromised… much like its creator Helena Guerrero. A lady who is constantly creative, forever innovative." - Jennifer Schoon, "Fashion: Manila's Azabache in Singapore"
"Guerrero says she believes in drama. And the clothes show this conviction." – Sheryl Fitzgerald, In Fashion, December 1, 1981
