Team Manila

June 11, 2013









I barely stopped myself from headlining this post “A Walk to Remember” – but it kind of rather was. Team Manila was kind enough to invite a few bloggers to walk the runway for their fashion show last Saturday at SM Manila. And though my nerves didn’t bring me to tears this time unlike the last show I was previously part of, events prior were very interesting.

It’s funny – my hair turned Goldilocks at one point and my brows were filled in an unforgiving shade of charcoal. Thankfully, no photos were snapped of that pre-intervention stage and everything was resolved with a thorough hair whipping and relentless brow wiping. And though there were a couple (okay, a lot) of on-stage (and backstage) blunders, it all sort of worked out in the end. I think.

One thing I really looked forward to though was being styled by Proudrace‘s Pat Mosby and Rik Rasos. For some reason, stylists hear the term blogger and next thing you know you’re decked out in neons, mullet skirts, bib necklaces and matching drop earrings that seem to be as heavy as the weights you refuse to lift. Okay, that was slightly exaggerated but true. I knew with Pat and Rik it would be different – confirmed by my predominantly black outfit. I trust their tastes 100% as I am pretty much an avid consumer of it in the form of Proudrace goodies I love so much.

I realized Team Manila is a store I would love to tinker around in more. I gravitated towards their Lomo cameras that I’m pretty certain I can’t optimally use but am very tempted to purchase anyway. I honestly thought they only sold slogan tees and was pleasantly surprised they had cropped shirts and pieces that don’t necessarily refer to my Filipino meal preferences. (Although, shall I find you in one, I’d probably agree that I, too, enjoy my balut). On a more serious note, I’m glad I got to be a part of it and I think I found a brand I’ll be posting a lot more about. Rumor does have it – Team Manila’s future is looking bright.

My modeling career? Probably not as much.
