Philippine Fashion Week is over, with me attending the closing show by the famed Cesar Gaupo last Sunday. It was definitely a must-watch. But for today, let me share with you the opening show of PFW:
The invite says "Gates Will Open at 6:30." When they say gates, they really meant "gates" hehe...
The piano man played his music to keep us company. Food and drinks were served as well, but I used the waiting time to take photos of the opening show attendees :)
The Preview team from left to right: Lyca Puno, Cit-Cit Sioson, Cindy Go, Anna Canlas and Eugene
Manila Bulletin colleague Cherry Tan
Stylebible.ph's Nikki Santiago who was part of my staff before. So proud of her :)
Photographer Sandro Paredes working it
Meg's Carla Villanueva and Teej Nepomuceno
Puey Quinones, Leah Puyat and Bibai Gasaino
I love this set of siblings, so cute in leopard prints :) Daryll and Andre Chang
Photographers Daniel Tan and Noel Pabalete
Me with my godsister and Senior Brand Manager of Pond's, Jacqueline Yuengtian. The show is sponsored by Pond's Gold Radiance, BTW
Finally, the gate opens with host Tessa Prieto-Valdes doing a short intro
Will talk about the show proper in Manila Bulletin, but here's a photo of what the collections were all about: shades of gold as presented by four designers (Dennis Lustico, JC Buendia, Jun Escario and Rajo Laurel) and modeled by 12 handpicked muses. Tweetie de Leon-Gonzales was also presented as Pond's Gold Radiance endorser.
I just had to take a photo of Liz Uy and Pauline Juan after the show. Lovin' the fur coat and the Fendi Peek-a-Boo bag of Liz; Pauline's sheer leopard printed dress is subtly sexy, too!
And finally, a photo with some friends: Charmain Tan, makeup artist Cherry Pacheco, me with fellow blogger and schoolmate, Nikki Tiu of askmewhats.com
