When In Manila and excited for MNG’s F/W 2011 collection so I saved the date and rushed to The Plaza at Resorts World Manila to give you the low down on one of Manila’s hottest brand’s new collection fresh from the runways!
Went backstage to check out the preparations, accessories and personally, the fabric choices!
The show was styled by 5 of Manila’s up and coming stylists: Teej Nepomuceno, Myrrh Lao to, Patrick galang, Bianca santiago-Reinoso and Preview’s editorial assistant Anna Canlas. They were all tasked to showcase Mango’s collection through different aesthetic feels and trends: Modern Mystique, Alluring Androgyny, Nudes and Neutrals, Glamorous Getaway and Oriental Opulence.
Familiar faces and supermodels Ria Bolivar, Pauline Prieto, Jessica Yang and the likes were prepping for the catwalk during technical rehearsals. Models ranged from different ethnicity and race. It was refreshing to see this. Proving Mango’s shades, tones, cuts and most importantly, fit really was for every woman.
The Plaza of Resorts World glimmered in modern European interiors and beautiful people all over!
