A couple of months back, we got to attend our first uber fabulous fashion show, The Global Pinoy by Fashion Avant-garde of Baguio (FAB) Inc. In this recognition night and gala show held at the Baguio Country Club, the best and most creative fashion designers from Baguio got to showcase their couture masterpieces.
There were 16 designers in all, namely Karu Villanueva, Jheo Rapanan, Tedd Mabitazan, Mark Tamayo, Dave Ocampo, Andrew Visaya, King George Bueno, Joey Sadsad, Edwin Uy, Paul Sanglay, Rian Fernandez, and Harvic Dominguez.
The runway was laden with patches of moss and wood, making the models look like they were gracing a forest with their exquisite gowns and suits, serving Disney royalty fierceness. Many of the outfits were faithful to Philippine themes and fabrics, while still remaining modern and relevant. We were positively gagging the entire time as the models slayed the catwalk.
The event also recognized three outstanding individuals, all from Baguio, for their lifetime contributions to their respective fields. These influencers are none other than the legendary Narda Capuyan for fashion, world-renown Eros Goze for fashion photography, and Champion MMA fighter Eduard Folayang for sports.
Oshare, the premium lifestyle Baguio magazine, also unveiled the launch of their website, which we are also proud to have some contribution to. Check them out at www.osharenabaguio.com
Finally, the leadership for FAB Inc. was also handed onto designer Harvic Dominguez for his outstanding and award-winning work in the fashion world.
All-in-all, we were absolutely stunned by the dazzling talent that is present in these Baguio designers. We were also inspired to further pursue our own creative passions, be it in art, fashion, or photography. The aim of FAB Inc. is to elevate the fashion scene in Baguio, and we are witnesses to see that vision coming to life.
