Piolo Pascual and menswear designer M Barretto.
Eeeek. I die. Sorry, pero diba naman! That smile was for me!!!! Eeek. hahaha. Backstage at the M's collection. His show explored a different concept from the usual runway setting. The models just trotted out, positioned themselves in a U formation, and stood still for 20 minutes. In a more intimate gathering, this would have worked, a sort of clothes on display like a gallery. But as it was a big crowd, I don't think the objective was achieved. The only thing it was able to do was, make the models more accessible to photo opportunists. We couldn't even see the pieces because the mob was so thick. Good thing Pauline, Preview's EIC, had the foresight to drag a team backstage to take a sort of lookbook snapshot of the clothes. Will post mine here after my article on M Barretto comes out this Saturday in Phil Star Supreme. In the meantime, Piolos photo will do. =)
