Manila X Founder and Creative Director John Lozano’s inspiration to give every Filipino an access to fashion and to help them discover and embracing their individuality with the help of music came to life with the staging of Manila X Festival last June 4, 2016. Four themed fashion shows were styled by duo Rain Dagala and Em Millan, Bang Pineda, John Paul Dizon and Myrrh Lao To. Hip retail website Zalora also held its own show.
Manila X Festival was under the helm of Paolo Valenciano, each fashion show were scored by live musical acts from The Juans, Thyro and Yumi, Kjwan, Kiana Valenciano, Up Dharma Down, Gloc 9 and Yeng Constantino. To keep the night alive, DJs Badkiss, duo Curse & Bless, Jessica Milner, Marc Marasigan, Mars Miranda, Tom Taus and Ace Ramos spun their best beats.
Our guest photographer Yummie Dingding was in the forefront of the show and took amazing shots of the event. Here are some of the ManilaXperience moments during the show.
“Kjwan became one of the highlights recently concluded Manila X Festival last Saturday, June 4 at Globe Circuit Makati. Kjwan rocked the stage along with male models representing “grunge”. As if Marc Abaya was still not enough for giving you some doze of sexiness in one night. The event was called fusion of “rock and rave with style”, directed by Paolo Valenciano. The festival was packed with different themes. Cat walks of clothes from the metro’s top designers and brands with live performances of music artists from different genres of rock, pop, and edm,” mentioned Yummie on her Facebook status.
