It’s Fashown!

I’m really not what you would call an “Embuh” person. I wouldn’t be caught dead gyrating to the beats of “tugz tugz tugz” in a sea of sweaty, inebriated clubbers. But last Friday, I found myself doing just that in the controversial club, when ETC held the press launch for Project Runway Philippines Season Two.

Despite the larger venue, the launch wasn’t really as full-blown as last year’s. There were no afternoon cocktails, no special preview of the contestants’ sample designs, and no press conference. This year’s event was just one huge gala, comprised mainly of interviews and a sneak preview of the first episode which could have gone a lot smoother.

But at least the technical problems did not distract from the real highlight of the event, which was the introduction of the 13 designers:
