Manning like his aircraft, Capt. Nico Agustin, the founder and producer of Pilipinas Men’s Fashion Week, took the show’s 11th season to soar to an exciting new height. The 2nd night held last March 2 at the jampacked House Manila club in Resorts World became a fitting finale. The level of excitement and gushes of admiration was stratospheric as models in kaleidoscopic collections paraded the runway. The second batch of designers who featured their collections that evening were Che Aranjuez, Nico Agustin, Dave Ocampo, Rian Fernandez, Jun Lee, Marllon Tabangcura, Rafael Louis Gonzalez, Yako Reyes,and Dauson Bermtay.There were swimwears in splashes of tropical colors to love, athleisure pieces in fun and crazy prints attracted streetsmarts, delightful patterns were abundant for those who wanted to make a bold statement, jetsetters can swoon over sartorial travel wear, the dapper guy would drool at chic paisleys and stripes, and the unorthodox fashionista can bask in the sun in yards of fabric. They totally took us high as we got immersed in a euphoric melange of fashion innovations! Now, all we can do is to recollect which of these made us lovestruck and thought over and over again which to acquire, put in our luggages and fly to enjoy a stylistic summer.
Here are some of the highlights at the 2nd show of #PMFW11th:
