I don’t know if I have what it takes to become a MODEL. So when my model cousin (yeah, she’s a GilEx model) told me that Sophie Paris Valencia Branch is looking for models, I didn’t hesitate to apply and check if I could be accepted. Luckily, I was chosen as one of the eight Sophie Paris Models for the Catalogue Launching last September 8, 2013 at CAP Building Valencia City.
We were given t-shirts to wear during the fashion show and we are to model their latest products. The latest fashion bags, wallets and sunglasses in their 61st catalogues were the products that we have modelled for the event.
This is my first time to be a ramp model and yes it was quite hard and overwhelming. I am not used to wearing 5 inches high heels so it was quite hard for me. I have watched a lot of videos about catwalks in YouTube to make myself more presentable for the event and to check if my catwalk is right.
I met new friends and I am glad that I was part of this Catalogue Launching. I realized that it is not too late to reach for your dreams, it is not too late to do what you really wanted to do from the start. Everything has its own time.
I have already shared to you a lot of my photos during the first photo shoot that I had with my friend. And we had another photo shoot a day before my birthday. Actually, we had a photographers’ event and it was FUN. We had a photo walk in the morning and a photo shoot during the afternoon. A week before the event, I kept on asking my friends and checking on the internet for more photo shoot ideas while I was checking workflow management software at eoncode.com. And I came up with “The Hunger Games” theme. Yes, I really liked Katniss Everdeen in the movie The Hunger Games that is why I chose to copy her look.
Here let me share with you some of the the result:
Yes, FINALLY, we got it! I mean, the background is now more presentable than before. We have finally made an effort to clean the background before taking a lot of photos of the clothes that my friend is selling online.
My friend is selling these beautiful dresses at a very low price and the good thing is you can see it worn compared to other online shops that only fits in the mannequin.
She is also selling cardigans, and you can see the designs and the fitting here:
I am glad that the outcome for the 3rd pictorial was FINE and that the background was a better area compared to the first two pictorials that we had. I think the next thing that we should prepare for the 4th one is that a GOOD LIGHT, we should have a bright light or at least we should do it during the day so that we will not rely with the phone’s flashes.
I am not a Fashion Guru and never a Fashion model, but I am a Fashion enthusiast and I do love to watch people and celebrities who have the right Fashion sense. This is my first time to watch a Fashion Show and I was amazed. I was amazed because I never thought that a Fashion Show could showcase such elegance and beauty in just a matter of time.
Ms Phoemela Baranda was the host for the Style Origin (Inspiring Imagination) event at Ayala Centrio Mall last May 25, 2013. I only see her on Televisions and I was star struck by the way she handles herself and the way she hosted the show with such sophistication and how she manage to get her audience hook to the show.
These are just some of the PHOTOS that I have took during the Fashion Show, the fashion show was brought to us by Bettina, Artwork, Jockey, Parfois, Promod, Sperry top-sider, and other sponsors that I may have forgotten to mention.
Of course, the event will not be PERFECT without the beautiful Ms Julia Barretto (daughter of Marjorie Barretto (actress) and Dennis Padilla (comedian/actor). Ms Julia Barretto gracefully walk down the ramp like every ramp model can and she was so admirable in every aspect.
I am so thankful that I was invited for this event and that I didn’t turned it down (to think that we are sitting on the first rows). Kudos to the people behind this successful event!
