MANILA, Philippines - Philippine Fashion Week Holiday 2012's 1st day last May 22 was a considerable success, despite the fact that there were afternoon rain showers and the 2nd day of Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" ball. (Surprisingly, there was no traffic to and from SM Mall of Asia that day, either.)
The SM Food Group presented the Ms. Earth Philippines 2012 contestants in a show at the main atrium at 6:30 PM.
The Ramp Crossings followed at 7:30 PM, with a collection that delighted the mixed fashion audience of families, editors, bloggers and business partners.
RAPPLER Life & Style editor, Kai Magsanoc, tweeted live from her front row seat.
We've also compiled tweets from netizens present at the event. Check them out:
