Chicdriven Women Empowerment Expo Fashion Show BTS

Something that I really looked forward to this month was my chance to walk the runway once more. Last time I did was back in 2014 as a candidate for Mrs. Philippines-Globe.

So I was absolutely thrilled when after joining Chichdriven's Instagram contest, I won a place in their F&F and Butterfly Twists Fashion Show which would be the grand finale of the expo that was held last July 16 and 17, 2016 at the Glorietta Activity Center.


I loved the busy time to do a fitting with Sidney Yap at the F&F store two weeks prior and then the day itself my call time for hair and Make-up was 11am backstage.  I was giddy and excited. All I was thinking is that I should relax and have fun.

Hair was done by Fred from L'Oreal, where I fondly said "I leave in your hands to make me a Goddess" haha. He surely did that by giving my hair body.

I sat in the chair of Aiky Nar who was actually a finalist of Mega Fashion Crew! I was so grateful that he allowed me to video live my make-over.

We were guided by Issa Litton who directed us on our positions on stage. There were four sections of the show: Boho, Corporate, White and Pink.

Even more amazing was when I saw who I would be ramping with and it turned out to be non other than Phomela Baranda, Suzi Abrera and Sam Oh - who I have long idolized!

Sam, Suzi and Phoem!

I was assigned to the pink group where we ramped to the song "Girls Just Want To Have Fun!"


The final look: Dress by F&F, Shoes by Butterfly Twists and Styling by Sidney Yap
It was very much an exhilarating experience for me and I really felt empowered with all the wonderful women I got to share the show with.
