Future Fusion

It’s been a while since anything big happened at the NBC Tent, so it was a delight to see fashion again in the area recently. The MEGA Young Designers Competition celebrated its culmination with a finale showcasing the final six’s collection, with the theme of “Megamorphosis,” wherein the finalists were tasked to present a collection on how they envisioned the future of Philippine fashion to be.

Directed by Robby Carmona, and hosted by one of the country’s top models, Sarah Meier, the show featured the collections against a black backdrop filled with the designer’s sketches of their showcased entries. Simple, yet powerful, as this invited the guests to a journey of sorts, from conceptualization to the finish product.

Robin Gundran came in second runner-up, with Mara Chua as the first runner-up and who was awarded Best in Show as well. Gundran showed off his talent for curvaceous patterns that highlighted the feminine form, while Chua mixed plastic with fabrics (and ruffles) for a futuristic vibe.

Renan Pacson, who has been one of the crowd favorites since the start of the show and the competition, proved that he deserved the top spot. His utilitarian chic collection was amplified with the use of patent leather and sheer fabrics. His jackets with big lapels added a powerful aura to his women-on-top assemblage.
