I don’t really consider myself a fashionista. In fact the closest I’d get to being one is when you see me browsing some fashion magazines or watching makeover shows on Velvet or Lifestyle channels… You can say I’m not the type to want to be first in sporting the latest trend since I’m already comfy in my jeans and shirt and basic footwear.
So… when I received an invite for Fitness.Fashion, at the Waterfront Hotel (Lahug), I was confused. Hahaha. What do I wear to such an event??? The dress code said: “Wear something chic”. Right… What’s chic these days? That’s very ambiguous.
After deciding on a top I already had and a good pair of jeans (yep, dark skinny denims) and stilletos, off I went with my friend Dahlia.
The show was a mixture of collections from several designers, the likes of Joey Samson, Louis Claparols, Tonichi Nocom, Protacio Empaces, Jun Escario, Rajo Laurel, Philip Rodriquez, Vic Barba, Rhett Eala, Arcy Gayatin, Randy Ortiz, Cary Santiago, James Reyes, Lord Maturan, and Edwin Ao (list of designers lifted from StyleCebu.com).
There were really nice clothes on the ramp but Dahlia and I, along with our other lady-companions on the “green section” were aww-ing and ahh-ing at the buff and lovely (male and female and Cebu celebrity) models more than the collection. Hihihi.
So much for fashion watching. It was a new experience for me and taught me a bit about style (which needs to be put to practice I suppose). I hope I don’t see myself in pictures with a blacked out face and labelled “what not to wear to a fashion event” or “caught by fashion police”. 😉
