As you know, I walked last week, November 29, for Plains & Prints during the New Glorietta Vibe event. I’m a very small girl, I admit, but it has never discouraged me from attaining a dream meant for statuesque ladies alone. Like I’ve said a million times in this blog, fashion is for everyone. And I’ve always held that belief.
I know when I came to the place for the rehearsals, I’d be seeing real models and that thought excited me rather than intimidated me. I was hoping to see my favorite Filipina models Ria Bolivar, Pauline Prieto, and Jasmine Maierhofer. And I did, actually I waved at Ria Bolivar like an excited kid. I was too shy to say hi to Pauline and Jasmine, but seeing them waiting for their turn to walk the runway just beside us was enough for me. Maybe next time. Onto the show…
I met Twinie (left) and Princess (right) during the fitting and we hit it off immediately. I’d say we were almost inseparable during the event proper. Here we are smiling for Princess‘ camera while waiting for our runway ID’s.
After 4 hours of waiting, we finally got our ID’s and fell in line, waiting for our turn. Meet my fellow Plains & Prints models. Thanks, KC, the girl in black skirt, for letting me grab this photo. 😀
Unfortunately, it never crossed my mind to take photos, I swear. That’s what insomnia can do to you. Haha. So I am yet to find (or receive) a clear shot of me walking the runway, but here’s a screen-grab I managed to snip while watching the video (below).
And of course, mandatory picture after the show at the Plains & Prints shop. Below is a video of us by Rafi Quisumbing. You can find me at the 19:44 mark, that is if you wanna see me. Haha.
Indeed, 2012 has been very good to me. I made it to magazines, a billboard, and this. Above all, I met new people and great friends. Special thanks goes to the boyfriend for being simply awesome, and to the people who voted for me during the selection process—without you guys, I wouldn’t be in the event.
