Manila X is a fashion and music festival not unlike MTV’s Fashionably Loud circa mid-‘90s: a fashion show and concert rolled into one.
Unlike the latter, which offered ‘90s alternative music alone, Manila X gathers artists from different genres: rock, pop, indie, electronic, synth-wave, and so on.
On May 27 at Globe Circuit Events, the second edition of Manila X happens with Bamboo, KZ Tandingan, Kiana Valenciano, Sam Concepcion, Curtismith, Jess Connelly, Franco, and YouTube sensation William Singe taking care of the music for the fashion show.
But then it tops itself: Manila X won’t just offer one fashion show but three. Uh huh, guests will be treated to three fashion shows whipped together not by brands or designers but by stylists and their partner magazines.
There’s Patty Yap for Candy Magazine, Ica Villanueva for Chalk Magazine, and Perry Tabora for Meg.
“It’s a different kind of fashion show in that we value the stylist more than the designer and that’s because stylists put the fashion, the look together,” explains John Lozano at the launch held on Tuesday at Vu Bar in Marco Polo Ortigas. “The idea is to present wearable clothes, clothes that people can buy in the mall, clothes that people wear everyday.”
Apart from the musicians and the stylists, celebrities will be walking the floor—though everybody has kept mum on who these celebs are.
Paolo Valenciano, Mr. Pure Energy’s other son and the director of the show, promises Manila X will be a “very visual affair with greater production value than the last.”
Manila X aims to celebrate the youth and their passions, and to provide an avenue to promote the talent, creativity, and innovation that this generation as to offer.
We don’t know about you, but this sounds like our kind of a shindig.
