MEGA Fashion Crew Ep 10: Exuding Beauty in Threes

Exuding Beauty in Threes

Hype is building as the remaining teams feel the pressure to prove that they should be MEGA’s Top Fashion Crew. As a final twist last episode, no teams were eliminated during the last challenge. But for this week, good will not be enough.

The teams have made it this far and the judges are expecting only the best among the best. People always view beauty as seemingly effortless. In reality, it requires a lot of work to create an image worthy of perfection. It also needs quite a great deal of attention to achieve. This week’s challenge will show beauty in different aspects and stretch the contenders’ creative ideas further.

A three pronged challenge awaits contestants as they strive to be the final two. Contestants will have to show beauty through three different mediums: a print ad; a television commercial; and a fashion show. The teams have already executed fashionable photos and a stylish runway show. But will they be able to pull-off a tv commercial for a product feature?

MEGA's Magic 4

In just one challenge, teams have to display their strengths in the three challenges to wow the judges. The teams also need to convince judges on a product feature through a tv commercial. Will the challengers survive through three challenges in one episode? Veteran director Joey Reyes and top creative director Mr. Manuel Villafania share their ideas and expertise as a guest judge for the episode.

The teams must be bold enough for a beautiful triumph. The four remaining teams will have to show only their strongest to make the final cut for the grand finale. Who will be the last two teams vying to be MEGA’s Top Fashion Crew?

Stories are like genies...They can carry us into and though our sorrows. Sometimes they burn, sometimes they dance, sometimes they weep, sometimes they sing. Like genies, everyone has one. Like genies, sometimes we forget that we do.
Our stories can set us free...When we set them free.

Denim, Bling, Camel.

Wore this for a busy bee Saturday where I had to work for an upcoming project I am so excited about (but kind of have to keep under wraps first....) Had a great time shooting at he rooftop and helipad (hello, hello, Vertigo) with Myrrh and Aisa and the rest of the team as they were a blast. I cannot wait! Anyway, I had to wear this outfit as I needed to be comfortable and capable to move around but also, I didn't want to sacrifice style or glamour, so I went oversized denim button down shirt and caramel toned trousers/leggings and piled on gold, silver bling to glam it up!

Sometimes you fall, spinning through space, grasping for the things that keep you on this earth. Sometimes you catch them. They can be the hands of the people you love. They can be your pets- pups with funny names, cats with ferocious old souls. The thing that keeps you here can be your art. It can be things you have collected and invested with a certain sense of meaning. A flowered, buckled treasure chest of secrets. Shoes that make you taller and, therefore, closer to the heavens. A suit that belonged to your fairy godmother. A dress that makes you feel a little like the Goddess herself.

Sometimes you keep falling; you don't catch anything.

Sometimes you fall, spinning through space, grasping for the things that keep you here. Sometimes you catch them. Sometimes you don't.

Sometimes they catch you.

Smoke and Mirrors.

All Black and Pink.

I wanted to keep a simple and classic look so I went for the staple: ALL BLACK. The outfit I have on has that "jumpsuit" / "pantsuit" effect which was exactly what I wanted to achieve. To do so, I combined a black tube top and high waisted trousers from one of my favorite local brands, MOONSHINE, owned by my friends Kato and Audrey. To make the look not all too somber and plain, I styled it up with pink accessories from my cousin's accessories brand, +RUCKUS and my pink Sparrow Miu Miu satin maryjanes...which I just adore.
