Manila Design Week: What’s In Your Bag

I was one of the people featured in Manila Design Week’s What’s In Your Bag. The event was sponsored by Bratpack and since they’ve been giving away prizes over at Saabmarine Teleradyo, RA and I decided to do a live broadcast from their store in Greenbelt 5 because the exhibit was held just downstairs at the Fashion Walk.

The concept: a photographer takes photos of the model, the bag and its contents while a graphic designer interviews the model and does the layout of the whole thing to suit his/her personality. Model: Saab Magalona. Photographer: Niko Villegas from Edge of Light. Graphic Designer: Ramon Vizmonte.

I was busy broadcasting so Julius was entertained by these fabulous people.

My wonderful gay friends Adrianne Nyko and Lui

They're such natural models :p

He also took photos of the store. Bratpack is a pretty cool store.

What a cute bacon watch!!

We went downstairs for the exhibit itself and here are photos of the finished products:

    Saab, I’m curious — why is it that your photo shoot’s theme is (literally) trash? Especially when you said that the layout was designed to suit the model’s personality? Hehe. Pero in fairness, you look fab kahit basura yung background! 🙂

    Keep blogging! 🙂
