OXYGEN HOLIDAY 2011 PRE-SHOW AT MAXIM'S

On my way to SMX for the Luxwear show Ericka Bugia of Oxygen phoned me and asked if I wanna hangout with The Misshapes and all the cool kids here in Manila. At first, I declined because I vowed to watch a couple of my designer friends showing at SMX. But then again I realized it was a great opportunity to meet and greet with the uber cool Leigh Lezark and Geordon Nicol. So I called her right back and told her I changed my mind and wanna take her offer. Who knows one of these days I might end up collaborating with Oxygen since I share the same aesthetics with the popular local brand. Anyway, my Dad dropped me off in front of Maxim's. And as I was walking towards the reception I bumped into my blogger friends Karl and Paul who were also invited for the tete-a-tete with The Misshapes. The bus boy escorted us to Ericka's room which was right next to The Misshapes'. When we got there sadly they were still catching up on sleep so we didn't get to hangout with them. Bummer! Since there was nothing much to do my blogger friends and I ended up just taking photos for our Lookbook entry and our respective blogs. Why not, right? We might as well take advantage of the awesome location. And then minutes later, Jujiin and Jake Galvez arrived. An hour before the show we all headed down. And guess what? When we stepped out of the hotel there was a bunch of Volkswagen wheels waiting for us. Pretty, pretty rad! Of course I had to pick the black one for obvious reasons...
