What. an. experience. If I could designate a theme song for this, it would be Moment 4 Life by Nicki Minaj. Here are some things you need to know about how insane this experience was for me:
1) I have a dream book – a compilation of dreams I want to achieve in my lifetime – and a huge ass ticket from PhFW 2010 is glued to one of the pages. I’ve always, since the moment I set my eyes on my very first Fashion Week show, wanted to try walking for Fashion Week – which was completely absurd coz I stand at about 5’2″.
2) When SM told me that I was gonna walk the runway for the SM Ladies’ show – along with Patricia Prieto, Lissa Kahayon, Camille Co and Laureen Uy – I was jumping for joy. That and one helluva crazy dance.
Oh, if you were wondering why we’d walk for SM, well, I’m happy to announce that we’re the newest brand ambassadors of SM GTW – Girls Teens’ Wear. (There’s another ambassador joining us, but can’t announce it yet, that’s a surprise.)
3) Two hours before the show I was terrified. Really terrified.
4) One and a half hours before show, I had to change outfits. The rest of the bloggers got to style themselves but since my picks were too big, SM’s stylist Millet Arzaga gave me a new outfit.
and next thing I know, we were walking Fashion Week!
The experience was so surreal. Definitely #BlessedBeyondBelief.
Here are some pics after the show with the people I love. 🙂
A pic with my ever supportive Momma (who usually takes my outfit shots!)
a pic with my other momma! haha meet my boss, Sarah Meier-Albano, who helped me get through that day (and who stayed after her PFW show to watch mine. Best boss ever. *sigh* )
and a pic with some of my closest friends, Danika Navarro and Rocky de Castro
and loooook! We had no idea our pictures were gonna be put up, much less how HUGE the pictures would be. See how pint-sized I am compared to the pics? (p.s. that’s Patricia walking on the left )
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS, SM GTW and Justa! No bias, they had a lot of great stuff that I’m definitely looking forward to owning. Prints- florals, paisleys, scarf-prints, pastels, and bold colors are just some of my favorites from their collection. Do check them out at their GTW facebook page http://www.facebook.com/#!/SM.GTW and GTW website http://www.sm-gtw.com/ 🙂
