So, as perks of my middle class job, I got tickets to see the Guess' fashion show at Philippine Fashion Week last Monday at the SMX Convention center. Seeing as it was my first time attending such event, I was thinking that it wasn't much big of a deal and that everyone also thinks that the attire, which was semi-formal, wouldn't be followed anyway. I was wrong. It was fashion week. DUH. So everyone really goes there dressed to impress. And me being me went there in my work clothes. Gosh, I was really embarrassed to be even there with my outfit. I was with my friend, Eimee, and my sister. All of us were struck as people around us are so glammed upwhile we stay normal. Our self-esteem went downhill as we went inside. HAHA.
Guess, which I think had been kind of down in terms of news and publicity, wow-ed everyone as they are part of this year's fashion week and getting local celebrities to showcase some of their collection, nonetheless. Guess' Vice-President Anthony Courchet opened the show that featured their Fall-Holiday 2011/Spring 2012 collection. The music that rocked the show was by veejay (should I say DJ) Sanya Smith which matched the futuristic-techno-ish feel of the runway. Foreign models walked the ramp showcasing Manilyn Monroe and old hollywood-inspired collection this season. Celebrities like Zia Quizon, Bubbles Paraiso, Paulo Paraiso, John Hall, Jay-R, Jamilla Obispo and the night's center of attraction, Maxene Magalona, also modelled the brand's collection.
Not only was it star-studded on the runway, fellow celebrities and socialites were also there to watch and support as their friends go walk the ramp. Raymond Gutierrez, Laureen Uy, Bianca Gonzales, fashion bloggers like Kryz Uy and Camille Co were there to watch the show as well.
Imagine how low my self-esteem was going to that show not fully dressed and ready for the event. I DIED. LOL. Well, I shall redeem myself tomorrow when I watch SMDC's show. Oh how I love my job. <3
