Pilipinas Men’s Fashion Week Season 11 started the fashion season with a heatwave of hip and sultry creations on it’s first show last Feruary 23 at the House Manila club in Remington Hotel, Resorts World Manila. The first leg featured both menswear and women’s fashion. Participating designers were Jun Lee, Edmir Lagui, Adam Balasa, Yako Reyes, Yves Camingue, Jona Salac, and Belle Villanueva for the Overdrive Segment while the 1st Men’s Night segment had Bryan Cinco, Jolex Remos, Naomi Ng, Rafael Louis Gonzalez and Ramon Favila. Each of the collection are exceptional but we’re particularly happy to see that the young designer Brian Cinco got a big break on the PMFW runway. He caught our eyes with his Aeroflot collection during the Fashion Institute of the Philippines Grad Show a few months ago, and it never missed the PMFW founder’s eyes as well who is an aviation pilot. The evening of excitingly diverse creations ended with overflowing concoctions at the House Manila club’s open bar and had all the fashionable crowd in a party mood. As always PMFW keeps getting better and bolder under the baton of its founder and producer Capt. Nico Agustin, fashion director Shandy Montecarlo Lim and operations manager Patrick Henry. Don’t miss the highly anticipated second leg of PMFW Season 11 on March 2!
Here are some of the highlights of PMFW Season 11:
