2011 Philippine Fashion Week

VANS x Philippine Fashion Week S/S 2012

Last week, Connect Agency provided me passes to VANS’ fashion show. I was quite surprised that a brand like VANS will participate in an event such as PFW, blame it on my ignorance. I figured later on that despite its popularity with extreme/action sports, VANS is still categorized under ready-to-wear. Though it is associated with active lifestyle, this does not necessarily mean that brands like VANS cannot be runway worthy. The photos below are proof.

During the penultimate day of the Philippine Fashion Week, VANS Philippines showcased its OTW (Off The Wall) collection.

What I love about the show production is that it stayed true to VANS’ character. The runway was a skate ramp and there were actual skaters and BMX riders displaying crazy stunts! How awesome is that.

Now on to the collection. Below are some photos I was able to shoot. Get ready for some color feast. Hehe. I was on front seat yo! 🙂

And who could best represent VANS? Jhong Hilario. Just look at those moves!

VANS is all about checks and solid colors this season, which are perfect not just for the summer but for the whole year! One awesome thing with apparels like VANS is that anyone can use them at any season. Talk about convenience.

And speaking of convenience, look at what VANS treated us with. Thank you, VANS!

Oxygen x Philippine Fashion Week S/S 2012

I was one of the 50 (55?) bloggers invited by Oxygen to witness their spring/summer 2012 collection. Upon entering the hall, I was amazed at how organized everything was. There is a seat for everyone! Yay!

However, since I was late, I had to situate myself in the farthest corner. It was alright though; people were on their seats so I was still able to take some photos.

Oxygen’s spring/summer collection featured androgynous cuts, lots of blue and green hues, and graphic tees using Marcela Gutierrez’s artwork. I’ve noticed that artworks are becoming a fashion fad.

This one-piece I like!

IMHO, Pauline Prieto, one of my favorite local models, best carries the androgynous look but still manages to look classy.

Danica Magpantay, 2010’s Ford Supermodel of the World, begins and closes the show. She looks way younger in person.

Very wearable! This is one of the reasons why I adore Oxygen. I am a sucker for anything that’s edgy, trendy, but at the same time, wearable. Oxygen gives me all.

Since Oxygen is all about edge, I decided to wear the following for the show:

Top from Oxygen | Ripped leggings from Cocco | Heels from Tiffany

Scarf from Shopaholic at SM Department Store | Gold flower ring from Zeros and Fives | Connector ring from Stylebreak

Thank you Connect Agency for the invite! 🙂

October Target: Score an Invite for the 2011 Philippine Fashion Week

I have never seen a single show of the Philippine Fashion Week. I could say I’m a lot more “adept” in foreign collections. The Philippines is a rich country, not just in values and agriculture, but also in aesthetics. We’ve seen and heard about Filipinos taking the fashion industry by storm, such as Danica Magpantay who was recently crowned as Ford Supermodel of the World, besting approx 70 other contestants from all over the world, and Rajo Laurel whose cobweb dress landed the cover of  Womens Wear Daily, the fashion industry’s bible, on February 9, 2010 :

17-year-old Danica outshines over 70 models, winning $250,000 modeling contract with Ford Models.
