MANILA, Philippines – “Every personality has a style, and every style has a personality.”
With the heat of summer fading into the humid night, several of the country’s top fashion and accessory designers and brands showcased their latest collections at the Greenbelt 5 Fashion Walk last Thursday, May 2. The show marked the start of Style Origin 2013, Ayala Malls’ series of fashion and lifestyle events that runs until July.
In a dapper suit and tie that foretold the looks to be seen that evening, television personality and sports enthusiast Marc Nelson hosted the one-hour fashion show that saw more than 50 models sashaying down the runway. The show paid tribute to some of Ayala Malls’ innovative Filipino designers as well as luxury brands.
From bags to jewelry to suits and swimsuits, the event was eye candy to everyone who saw the show — fashion lovers or not.
