Pilipinas Men's Fashion Week

The Pilipinas Men's Fashion Week is the 5th Men's Fashion Week in the world and 2nd in Asia. Cycle 3 Spring Summer 2014 was held last September 26-29, 2013 in Midtown Atrium Robinson's, Ermita. 


It was my first time to watch a legitimate fashion show for men. I was a curious cat who couldn't wait to take good photos. So after an awesome morning in church, I dragged my friend to come witness the bonanza with me.

Admittedly, I know little about men's wear (all the more, men's fashion) so I watched in silence and in awe as I tried to absorb as much brilliance from the creative crowd surrounding me.

Men sashayed their way through the catwalk with well-thought of fashion pieces ranging from a little over the usual casual to the rad. It was a fusion of good quality materials, keen eye for precision and pure creative genius. Although if you ask me, I'd prefer that men shy away from short shorts and tights. They were designed to flatter the curves of a woman's body but they tend to lead the eyes to the wrong places when worn by the modern man. I don't know about you but I think seeing something poke down there is AWKWARD. Well, that is unless the gents' idea of a fashion statement is by saying hello each time the dark knight rises.

The fashion show was founded by Nico Augustin Menswear and MJ Alminanza of Project Runway. And though I think it has a long way to go, I'm glad that the local fashion connoisseurs are in active pursuit of progress in their craft. And I can't wait for it's golden era.

NO. I can't tell you where to go and how to get there. But I do understand the burning desire to build a life of significance and the crippling fear of falling short. We'll figure it out OR NOT. I wish I could be a good friend and tell you that life is gonna be wonderful and that you are gonna be amazing. I won't. Because I don't know that. But I would like to believe I'll be a better friend telling you this--- I will be with you through our 20's haze and beyond. We'll bask in the confusion, conquer demons unearthed by impulse, climb mountains (literally and figuratively), go to places we've never been and see the world in hopeful eyes wherever it leads us. So be a little kinder to yourself. Let's just LIVE in the NOW.    

YES. I still think our 20's will be our best decade EVER. Aye! Aye! Let's make it count!  #NotetoaFriend #AsPromised
