DAY 3 – I really have to admit it, Manila Fashion Festival has showcased one spectacular show after another, the overall production from stage set, visuals, lights, music, choreography – is seamless, and it is not over yet, there are still two more shows. With just on its sophomore season we’ve already seen seasoned(and still friendly) fashion designers, professional models walking the runways, cool fashion editors you can take a selfie with and an awesome crowd of fashion creatives from stylists, bloggers, photographers, make-up and hairstylists up to a one proud grandmother, each day the number of enthusiasts swell with a good reason. Celebrating local fashion and style has never been this exciting, breath-taking and successful.
Much like the previous two shows, the roster of today’s designer collections is unique from each other, there’s allure, ready-to-wear, menswear and sportswear, significantly keeping the interest and energy high. Coincidentally, the same goes with each designer collection, the color story, head-to-foot styling and design cohesion surprisingly remained intact on a wide range of garment options. With that being said, each designer collection has its own highlights – Rhett Eala’s harem pants, Cheetah Rivera’s boldly colored dresses, ARIN’s punk statement glamour, Pablo Cabahug’s sexy athletic charm and Mark Bumgarner’s sweet, young, happily-ever-after fascination – for some reason I can’t stop thinking about Cinderella, I’m not sure why. I’m thrilled to see Heart Evangelista Escudero on the runway, walking for Mark Bumgarner!
Take a look at some of the best looks:
