Maaaaaaaaaaaan. I missed blogging. I survived Fashion Week--it felt like a month. i watched ALL shows, except for one, the first show on Saturday because I had an earlier engagement that required me to be in Antipolo. But other than that, yes, I watched ALL the shows. I wouldn't be in a position to pick the ten best collections if I didn't see all yes? And I do agree with Pauline that every designer deserves to be seen. And even though i rant every night that I'm exhausted, that my ankles hurt from walking in heels, that i haven't had enough sleep, i wake up the next day with excitement to see what the collections are going to be. I love fashion. With all it's schizoprenias--and the Filipino geniuses behind it.
I would like to say Congratulatioins to the 101 designers who slaved over their pieces to come up with their best. And thank you to the people who helped us through the mad 7 days that was Fashion Week: Niko of Buensalido, you are THE goddess who opens all the doors for us. Thank you for always giving us the best seats in the house. The L'Oreal team: Alvin, Martin, Pam and the lounge, for giving us a place to hang out in with refreshing iced tea--or wine if we felt like some alcohol was in order. And, for the best closing party, EVER!!! Alvin, it's you na talaga. I've got photos to prove it too. Haha. Ouch, mad laughter makes my head ache, I'm nursing the hangover now with some hot soup. Ugh. Kat Reyes of Oxygen, The Misshapes was insane! Thank you for inviting us to the show and the after party. And the style soldiers who came up to me saying that you guys read my blog. You're awesome!! I was pretty impressed by what you guys were wearing! I would have taken photos of you too but we were always in a rush to get in to the next show. Sorry. =( next time defo! Maru at Macapagal, for awesome Korean food, our staple dinner at midnight for the past few nights. And my boyfriend for understanding that Fashion Week is girlfriend-less week. Thanks B.
