I am not a fashionista. I am a plain jane. Jeans and tees are my thing, but I still try to dress up occasionally and love to doll up as well like any other girl. Although, going on fashion events ain't my thing, it all changed just because of one insanely idea... "I want to see Mario Maurer." ^_^
So, I went to see the Philippine Fashion Week Spring Summer 2012, at the SMX Hall 2, on October 29th, 2011.
As funny or crazy as it may sound, I still have to thank him for the experience. At least I get to see how an actual runway looks like, and how gorgeous the models are in real life! You can't blame me, I only see them and the runway on TV, thanks to Tyra Banks and Lifestyle Network! LOL
Penshoppe made it easy for fans to see the Spring Summer Collection for ordinary people at the Philippine Fashion Week with just 2 ways (as I recall with their INVASION promo):
- Customers are entitled to a (2) PFW Invites for every Php 1,000 purchase in a single receipt from October 21-23 at SM North Edsa, Trinoma, Glorietta, and SM Megamall.
- Customers who were at the Press Conference need only Php 300 worth of purchased item at SM MOA, and present their Press Con passes to avail of (1) PFW Invite.

Penshoppe showcased their upcoming collections featuring, The Holiday, White Summer, Color and Stripes, and the new Denimlab designs.
The highlight of the show was the introduction of Penshoppe's new endorser, Mario Maurer, and the reason why I was at the event in the first place. :) A short clip of his photo shot was first shown to the audience, and everyone as expected went wild with anticipation. When Mario walked out of the stage, his face showed nervousness and surprise, seeing that a lot of fans were there to support him. He walked the ramp in a white long sleeves, with grey-washed jeans, and yellowish boots.
|Even celebs are in awe!|
After the fashion show, my friends and I tried out the stage for some photo-op! ^_^

|Nicest thing is getting free loot bags! I like it, very earth-friendly.|
|Sheena ~ you look so mowdel here!|
Celebrity spotted! Feeling celebs din kami!
Me and my friends had a wonderful Fashion Week experience thanks to Thai heartthrob Mario Maurer. Sadly, a lot were not able to come in that night, because the venue was too small for the attendees, and Penshoppe didn't expect that a lot would come to the show. The good news is, that there will be another Fashion Show for those who stayed outside Hall 2. Penshoppe brings you:
