I will again be styling for this so hope to see you guys there! Text BNS at 09175707808 or 09175179172 to reserve slots. :)

So anyway, I had a last minute styling gig last Wednesday for a big "sporty" brand (thank you argie and jear for passing it on to me) at The Collective, Makati. Think Jansport but not Jansport. Guess it's obvious. Lol. I was so nervous coz I only had a few hours to prepare (yes, it was that last minute!) and the models are not really models but real people who've achieved a lot and have different advocacies. I'm such a sucker for that. This is also for their 2010 campaign which will be advertised and distributed to the media. Think posters, stickers, parties, etc. etc.! So, yeah I nearly had a panic attack. Especially since I'm used to going to shoots prepared with the clothes already in sets. It was a good thing that their organizer helped me through it and explained everything to me. So I made a quick run to SM department store to buy some props. I also hate going to shoots alone coz it makes me sad, so I'm really glad that Melai tagged along to also help. Thanks Melai!

This is one of the best shoots I've ever been to. One, because it's for a huge campaign which I'm all for. Two, it's for one of the best brands in the country. Three, the models are all inspirational people who all stand for something. And lastly, the team was sooo supportive and fun to be with! The photographer Dix Perez took amazing photos and edited the pictures right then and there! I already saw the final photos or more or less how it would look like when released, so I'm already excited for it's launch. Will let you guys know how the media launch on Nov. 11 will go:)

Lunch was provided by The Pasta Box! Yum.

 I wasn't able to take more photos coz we were all busy chatting and eating. Hehe. Here are some more BTS...

 After the shoot, I had to run to SMX for 2 meetings--one is with the fashion week team for a last minute (again) styling stint for the Ipanema show the next day, and the other for my new job as web editor for Fashion Depot!

with the owner of Auxmanila!=)

Surprisingly, that day, I really didn't give a shit as to how I looked even with all the fasyon people around. I love it. Haha. Haggardness galore but so what at least may fab reason! =P Melai and I also watched SM's show but we were so tired that we weren't able to really enjoy it. So we went home afterwards.

I suck at taking runway photos, I'm either too slow or too obsessed with deleting ugly photos that I miss important runway moments.  

 Jessica looks cute!
