This year’s PH Fashion Week is by far the most enjoyable experience for me. First because I finally saw Marie Claire creative director and Project Runway judge, Nina Garcia! I’m a big fan of Project Runway and the idea of seeing her in real life honestly never crossed my mind. So I want to applaud JAG Jeans for bringing her here in Manila. The interview was wonderful! Boy Abunda manage to put everyone at ease and it is less an ‘interview’ and more like two friends just having a conversation. Nina is so grounded and passionate that is almost inspiring and refreshing. And she just came across as so humble, honest, and nice!
The second reason is because I got approached by STATUS Magazine and a pretty redhead girl for an outfit photo. Never really thought they’ll notice me ‘cause I think I’m slightly underdressed haha. (super level up ngayon kasi last year southsartorial.com lang nag approach sakin, this year dalawa na & STATUS pa! hahahah)
See that redhead girl? She’s the one who approached me (such a sneaky shot, i know -_- haha). She’s so pretty and effortlessly chic. Saw her sitting in the front row near Nina Garcia and it can only mean one thing, she’s a VIP! Hmm…I wonder who she is.
I’ll be one of those photographers. Soon. But probably long time from now or maybe never.
I’m going to be perfectly honest here and say it’s no easy feat to attend a fashion show, snap photos, meet the usual stylish and fashionable crowd. But still, my aunt and I had a really good time, a little tired though. We actually waited for a bit longer than we anticipated, but it was well worth it :) More PhFW blog post here!!!
