Let me start off by showing you what I wore.
I wanted to wear something really comfy at the same time chic and weather appropriate. This printed maxi skirt was just perfect!
Okay so here's what transpired during the talk. As we all know, Project Runway Philippines is on the look for the next Filipino Fashion Designer. Set to premier on ETC in February 2012, this season is said to be more centered on Filipino pride, character, materials and culture. Their main goal is to inspire each designer to whip up something Filipino that can stand out among other global brands.
This third season sets the runway on fire as iconic Filipino model Tweetie de Leon- Gonzales takes over as the host bringing her years of experience as a model here and abroad. Joining her is Acclaimed designer Jojie Loren as mentor as well as internationally renowned designer Rajo Laurel and top model Apples Aberin as returning judges.
Let's expect more extravagant challenges, bigger celebrity guests and creme de la creme of Filipino fashion to take the spotlight. I've heard season 3 also goes "high-tech" as they partner with Asian Institute of Fashion iACADEMY which boasts of a new fashion design program that make use of modern IT tools in design. Great move right? Can't wait to see that!
Of course I didn't go by myself. I went with Pax and we were surprised to see we have matchy outfits! =) I love her expensive kind of look! A couple of agents selling a condo tried to talk her into buying and we were laughing thinking how the outfit kind of worked! haha! Achieve!!!
I had such a great time chatting with Aisa over coffee after the press lauch. See photo below, Coffeebean gave me a new name. lol!
Saw some of my friends from Solar.
Aisa and Kate
Cora was there too! =)

With ETC's free TV, all of us can catch each and every episode and witness how they showcase the uniqueness of Filipino designs on the global stage. I can't wait to see who gets to own a 10-page fashion spread in Mega Magazine, P500,000.00, start up business package of 10 sewing machines, a short term fashion design course at a top European fashion school, a two month apprenticeship with Asian Institute os Fashion's top industry fashion designers and a full scholarship for a four year fashion design program at the Asian Institute of Fashion iACADEMY. February please come fast!!! =)
PS: Aisa and I were interviewed and we answered quite a few questions. You know how awkward my face looks on TV and I don't think I can ever master speaking with a camera poked in my face lol! So if you ever see the vid by chance please don't judge wahahaha!
That's it for today! Have a great day loves! =)
