MANILA, Philippines – They called it an event “25 years in the making.”
On September 13, 8pm, the SM Mall of Asia Arena was transformed into a fashion extravaganza haven as fashion retail brand Bench celebrated their 25th year with the first of a two-night denim and underwear fashion show dubbed “Bench Universe.”
The brand is known for staging unforgettable fashion shows. Their bi-annual underwear fashion show featuring top celebrities and models is something that fans and fashion aficionados compare with the US’s annual Victoria’s Secret fashion show. In terms of concept, production design, styling and actual staging, Bench has set the bar in the local fashion industry.
RAPPLER’s Kai Magsanoc live blogged straight from the mosh pit of the Bench Universe catwalk.
