Ipanema presents its Resort Wear Collection for Spring Summer 2011 at the Philippine Fashion Week last Thursday, October 28, 2010 at Function Rooms 2 and 3 of SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia. I got an invite from Cel Mabalot who allowed me to bring my sister along to this event.
The Philippine Fashion Week, which is now on its 13th year, is the most awaited affair among fashionistas. The event showcased Ipanema’s colorful and chic resort sandals together with the creations of four of the country’s top resort wear designers, namely: Anthony Nocom, Ramon Favila, Ricky Abad and Simon Ariel Vasquez.
I have to admit I had a difficult time getting good shots of the models on the catwalk from where I was seated. I even complained to my husband that perhaps it was because of my outdated camera. What do you know; after a few days, he bought me a new one! LOL! Good thing Cel Mabalot sent me nice pictures of the models wearing their stylish Ipanema resort sandals and modish resort wear.
I was happy to see Michelle at the event, too. And Earth was kind enough to give us two passes for the Freego show. My sister and I were not able to see it, though, because it was already getting late, and my sister had to drive all the way to Dasmariñas, Cavite from Mall of Asia, so we missed that event.
