Visualzine Fashion + Art Exhibit with Fashion Academy Manila

Philippine Fashion Week was already finished but still the Fashion Style still goes on and on. Last May 27, 2011 I was invited to cover the Visualzine fashion and art exhibit.  The exhibit was star-studded with local personalities named Maxene Magalona, Rich Asuncion, Bubbles Paraiso, Tim Yap, Raymond Gutierrez and some fashion models of Visualzine.

Visualzine together with Fashion Academy Manila intends to bring it all together under one roof to become a springboard for anyone who is passionate about modeling, design, photography and beauty. Featuring seven specialized curriculums focusing on Photography, Make-Up, Hair Creatives, Fashion, Styling, Modeling, Artists’ lab and Personality Enhancement, the academy provides a platform by which an inherent skill can be developed through practical application.

The exhibit was a rich showcase of photography, graphic design, light and fashion. Check out some images I taken on the said event.

Philippine Fashion Week 2011 : Penshoppe Trailblazer Fashion Show

Philippine Fashion Week 2011 is almost over. Another update that I will share to you guys was the Penshoppe‘s Fashion Show for the PWF 2011. I receive an invite for this so I’m a bit closer to the catwalk compare to Wrangler’s Fashion Show that is open to the public.

A little information about Penshoppe Clothing, It provides a variety of styles to choose from and constantly update its collection. Started in 1986, today Penshoppe is recognized as one of the market leaders in the Philippine fashion, accessories and personal care product industry.

This season, Penshoppe steps up with its campaign, “Trailblazer” — the collection depicts those who conduct their lives off the beaten path: an innovator and pioneer, as it were. A leader is innovative inasmuch as people WANT to follow him or her, and DO — thus, a trailblazer must be emulated, so to speak. A test for an ultimate trailblazing assignment involves the ability to turn over a fruitful discovery into the hands of others.

The idea for the title was born out of a James Bond aesthetic and persona. Thus, TRAILBLAZER actually resonates comfortably as a Bond-film title of sorts. This aesthetic is reinforced further in the catwalk with traces of James Bond themes that will surely trigger vivid associations with the dapper secret service agent.

The given title flows from a natural progression from previous ones — i.e., Revolution, Elevation, and Arrivalist. Once a person has remarkably arrived, setting an example for others to emulate would be the consequent challenge. The title not only describes the brand thrusting forward; but, extends further to those who choose to wear PENSHOPPE merchandise —creating a brand and style loyalty among peers.

After updating so many news about Philippine Fashion Week 2011, now I’m sharing you guys the Wrangler‘s Fashion Show for the PWF 2011. The Show was open to the public that’s why there are so many people that night, but it’s good because I still captured some of the ramp models of the Wranglers.

A little information about the Wrangler, it is the iconic American denim brand that been known for advocating the importance of the free-spirited individual, filled with adrenaline and passion to be who he is — and express this in his fashion choices

This season, Wrangler steps up with its campaign, “My Fit, My Edge” — the collection that sets out to match every individual personality.  Wrangler believes that aside from finding the perfect fit of jeans — the right cut that flatters your body type — it’s even more important to find the color, style, and treatment that fits your attitude, lifestyle, and unique personality. With the perfect fit, the clothes don’t define you — you define the clothes.

Philippine Fashion Week Partnership with L’Oreal Paris Philippines

“No man is an island”, and “two heads are better than one”. It’s always better if you have you partner on what you do. This may be the reason why Philippine Fashion Week made a decision to have partnership with L’Oreal Paris Philippines. This is a very important partnership!” boasted Joey Espino, founder and executive producer of Philippine Fashion Week (PFW).  He was referring to the event’s team up with L’Oreal Paris. “The trust and commitment of a global brand like L’Oreal Paris means that the creativity and talent of the Filipino designers and models are truly world class,” he proudly declared.

For his part,  Arnaud de Fontgalland, country division general manager of L’Oreal Paris said the Philippine Fashion Week will be a great venue to show how committed his company is to coming up with products that exceed their customers’ expectations. “Anything and everything we have done has been fuelled by the desire to elevate the world of cosmetics,” he added.

Luc Olivier-Marquet, managing director of L’Oreal Paris Philippines, said the partnership will result into an extraordinary event. “We at L’Oreal are thrilled to be partnering with one of the biggest and longest running fashion event in the country. Together with the people behind PFW and its supporters, L’Oreal Paris’ vision of tomorrow’s beauty will resonate during the shows,” he noted.

Fashionistas who flock regularly to the PFW shows will be in for a treat as L’Oreal Paris, under the creative direction of make-up artist Jigs Mayuga, will compliment the clothes with the finest in hair and make-up. “Finally, the shows at PFW will set the trends not only in clothes and accessories but also in hairstyling and cosmetics. A complete look with fashion and beauty trends will definitely be translated from the runway to the streets.” Espino said.

The excitement is certainly building up. Beyond discovering new talents in the fashion industry, I am looking forward to the final creations of the great Louie Mamengo. He designed his collection while he was confined to his hospital bed in Los Angeles, California just before he passed away.

Over 25 shows from 101 Philippine Fashion Designers from all over the country will be showcased at the Philippine Fashion Week Holiday 2011 Collections to be held at the SMX Mall of Asia on May 8 to 15.
