Coke-Bench Fashion Show

I felt really lucky and honored to have been chosen as one of the few bloggers who were asked to cover the Coke-Bench Fashion Show last January 28 at Trinoma, as part of the Coca Cola 100 Years project. As a Fashion Correspondent we were given the VIP treatment talaga! Bongga. But more than that, it's not everyday I get to be a part of a truly unique and momentous event, wherein 2 iconic Filipino brands who've been part of every Filipino's lives joined forces to bring a complete, new line of hip, energizing a co-branded apparel and merchandise collection for the new breed of Filipino teens and teens-at-heart- the Coca-Cola Originals by Bench. Here are photos from the event!

 The Coca Cola's Happiness Ambassadors!

As fashion correspondents, we went around the activity area doing fun things while being filmed where it was shown live on the screen on stage! Highlight of our night was when we, the 5 blogger correspondents, were introduced and called on stage for a quick interview! NAKAKALOKA. 
 hate my face. lols.

Did you know that this was the 1st ever digitalized fashion show? This screencap was sent by a blogger who watched the whole event on her computer at home via Coke's website!

The best part of the night was our quick chat with THE Ben Chan! He's soooo nice:)
