The Pilipinas Men’s Fashion Week Season 4: Unleashed in Style!

Menswear fashion shows recently rocked the runways
across the globe featuring the trends to watch out
for this coming season. And definitely the Philippines
wouldn’t be left behind without featuring our equally
world class Fashion Designers whose innovative creations could be
at par with those who presently dominate the
international catwalks. And this was all possible
through The PILIPINAS MEN’S FASHION WEEK
which is the brainchild of our local Fashion Industry’s Fashion Maven
Nico Agustin. This is the 5th Men’s Fashion week in the
world, the 2nd in Asia and the 1st and official in the
Philippines.
Now in its 4th season, The Pilipinas Men’s Fashion
Week held last July 12 and 13 at the Midtown Atrium of
Robinson’s Place Manila featured highly talented fashion designers
who unleashed their creativity and presented their
stylishly diverse collections. The successful show was
divided into two segments , the Menswear Night and
the Menswear Rave that impressively showcased
the designers’ individual aesthetic and imagination from formal wear, street wear,active wear,ready to wear basics to androgynous couture that are all unique,appealing and wearable.
I undoubtedly enjoyed the whole show and
can’t wait what’s in store for the next season!

TOYCON 2014: 13 Years of Pop Culture Fun!

My curiosity with cosplaying and cosplayers started years ago when I got hooked with some anime shows during my college years. I may be fascinated with it, but I’ve never been to any cosplay event since I don’t have friends before who are really into it ( Hello.. I only know people in the Dental and Medical field before haha! 🙂 ). Well not until a friend of mine who was a cosplayer recently asked me to accompany him to the 13th TOYCON and Cosplay Event which was held at the Megatrade Halls 1,2,3 of SM Megamall. This is perhaps the biggest pop culture event in the country to date with huge doses of fun and thrills!  The Philippine Toys, Hobbies and Collectibles Convention, or TOYCON as it’s more popularly known is in its 13th year already which started from 2002. It is Asia’s biggest and longest running convention for collectibles, toys, anime, comics, cosplay, gaming and anything and everything related to hobbies and collections. The 13th TOYCON features the biggest and coolest exhibits and merchandise from apparel, life size and small collectibles, memorabilias, graphic novels,comics, cosplay paraphernalia, the latest gaming versions of the top gaming companies and of course a multitude assortment of TOYS!
