Fashion equinox

CEBU, Philippines — Modelling debutants walked the walk last Saturday, July 14, in “Fashion Equinox”, a made-to-measure fashion show that drew all sights on Cebu’s evolving street fashion sensibilities and the pinnacles local designers are gunning to crown in its trail.

Staged at the City Wing Atrium of SM Seaside City, more than 30 kids and teens decked the fashion runway with a number of the metro’s modelling pros, presenting in-season styles by Cebu’s favorite fast fashion brands and the in-season creations of Cebu’s Ryan Dumago, Jongz Loquinario, Griffins Malazarte and Janice Warner.

Applying what they’ve learned from modelling workshops and enrichment sessions with Stacy’s Model Management and Vee Models and Artist Management, the occasion’s models did well in clinching the fashion presentation’s goal to underscore dynamism in fashion.

Coalescing that just as the design sensibilities of brands run in parallel with that of couturiers, last Saturday’s fashion presentation intimated that the same could generally be said about models and modelling – that in as much as models are perceived to be the fashion industry’s front-liners, the distinction that sets them apart from “real people” is not necessarily as gapping as it is portended to be.

In a way, “Fashion Equinox” went beyond presenting design catchets that are pervading the consciousness of designers, as it exemplified how wearers are adapting designs to fit with their personal stylistic quirks – earmarking that the pretext in being fashionable is not just about what designers make, but what wearers make of what has been made.
