               I opted to wear a designer top since I it’s a fashion show and I like how designers remains the simple yet classic type so my top was from designer Alexander J. Bitong and paired it with a maxi skirt from an online shop at http://www.rosegal.com. I choose to be in a monochromatic style for this event because obviously in a fashion shows, black and white ensembles really do stand out. Everyone will be in their best edgy look. This is not really my style but I guess I have to consider also the event where I am going  in choosing my style and I think I was able to surpass the monochromatic challenge. Since it’s an all black challenge, good thing I have this black pair of heels from Kenneth Cole and this one is one of favorite pair of shoes most especially in attending events because it’s very light and easy to carry though it’s high and I don’t have to carry flat shoes anymore. Plus I got the chance to use this Coach bag that I got from my tita as my Christmas gift because as I’ve told you earlier I don’t have to bring a pair of flats anymore so now just my foundation,camera, purse and cellphone you will see inside my bag.

             It’s been a long time since I attended a Fashion show but this one is one of the biggest Fashion Shows I’ve attended aside from Philippine Fashion Week few years ago. Manila Fashion Festival comes back on the runway for Fall/Winter 2015. Manila Fashion Festival is a 4 day event but sad to say that I wasn’t able to make it the first 3 days because of graduation practices in school. I only attended the day 4 evening show, Filipino designers Mark Tamayo, Ziggy Savella, Vania Romoff and Jaz Cerezo. All their collections were amazing and all I can say is WOW, what a magnificent collection!

               Scroll down to see the collections of our Filipino designers.

IMG_3988          Preview Magazine on Manila Fashion Festival. Preview magazine conducted three sessions last March 20, 2015 at The Eye and Axon Function rooms of Green Sun Hotel, Makati City, Philippines- How I Started In Fashion, Fashion Editorial Styling and Building a Brand. I was kinda late for the first session because I went first to my graduation practice and I thought they will not strictly follow the time but atleast I was able to catch half of the talk for the first session.

          For the first session, It’s all about how did they started in the fashion industry conducted by the panelists BJ Pascual, Owen Sarmiento and Francis Libiran. It’s a 1 hour and 30 minutes talk. Well, BJ Pascual was one of the reasons why I am looking forward to this event to know more about him. BJ Pascual is one of Manila’s most in-demand fashion photographers. According to him his skills were discovered through http://www.multiply.com wherein he just posted his works. Another panelists is Owen Sarmiento, a freelance make-up artist who worked with MAC Cosmetics for 6 years and has done numerous editorials and covers for Preview. And lastly the most awaited for this session is Francis Libiran. He is one of Manila’s leading fashion designers, and a red carpet favorite with a strong celebrity base. According to him, he was an architect before turned fashion designer. Well, he’s really a natural born fashionista. No doubt that he is now successful in his career because he is so down to Earth guy. He approaches everyone. According to their talk for those people who are starting out in fashion industry take your time and know your identity first. Have time to observe because quality matters. IMG_3979

Yey I have a selfie with Francis Libiran.

IMG_3980 IMG_3970 IMG_4012          The next 1 hour and 30 minutes session is all about editorial fashion styling with speakers Daryl Chang and Vince Uy. Vince Uy is in Russia that time so he wasn’t able to make it on the talk but to give you a background about him he is the Creative Director of Preview Magazine and the brother of Celebrity Stylist Lizz Uy and Fashion Blogger Laureen Uy. Since Vince Uy wasn’t around, this session was all led by Daryl Chang who is the Fashion Director of Preview Magazine. Daryl Chang went straight to the point such as the five stages that should be known in the process of editorial fashion styling-Moodboards, sourcing, pull-outs, shooting and post-production. The whole talk was just fun because she made it simple it direct to the point. Daryl Chang also showed some of their works: IMG_4014 IMG_4016 IMG_4017 IMG_4023 IMG_4028 IMG_4032 IMG_4033 IMG_4034 IMG_4036 IMG_4037 IMG_4039 IMG_4040 IMG_4042 IMG_4060

          Selfie again with her!

          And for the third session it’s all about building a brand with Rissa Mananquil who is a co-founder and partner of Happy Skin Cosmetics and Jappy Gonzales who is the Managing Director of H&F Retail Concepts Inc., the local franchise holder of Carven, Lanvin, Balenciaga and Comme de Garcons. In this session, it goes all around the topics discussed from the previous sessions of Francis Libiran, Bj Pascual, Owen Sarmiento, Vince Uy and Daryl Chang. As mentioned in the first session that know your identity first because knowing your identity will help you determine your brand. Also, social media is great tool when it comes to building a brand as it empowers your likers and followers about your brand and product.
